When you are the parent of a child with special needs, the smallest kind gestures can be the ones that mean the most. And one mom’s Facebook post about someone’s kind gesture has gone viral — and resulted in much more than she could have imagined.


When her young son approached a man in a cowboy hat at the local rodeo, Charity Stewart Robinson posted about the miracle she witnessed on Facebook:

Dear stranger next to us at the rodeo,When my son came up to you and grabbed your arm, you didn't know he used to be…

In an interview with IJReview, Robinson revealed that the story didn’t end there. Several people commented on Facebook that the mystery cowboy was actually a preacher at a church nearby:

Through the post we were able to reconnect with that stranger and attended his sweet church this morning and hear his preaching and he actually shared the story about meeting Linc and had him up on stage with him!

… Y’all also might be happy to know he has been identified and someone has shared the post with his daughter so he can see it. He is the pastor of the Bar None Cowboy Church in Henderson, Jason Taylor.

My family is getting up to head to visit his church this morning. Amazing how the Lord works!
Yesterday he was a stranger and today he is a friend we sat next to in church.

It’s said that people are put into our lives for a reason. If that’s the case, then God must have big plans for these people.
