I came upon this book, its pages flapping sadly in the breeze as I waited for a stop light while driving us home.

It sat on the side of a corner where homeless people often stand with signs asking for donations or help. The title, A Plan for Salvation, seemed woefully out of place with its situation.

I wonder what circumstances brought it there. Was it given to a lost soul on the corner, in hopes of helping them, and then cast aside?  Or was someone hopeless of ever finding salvation?

It seemed every backstory I came up with was amazingly sad.  I could only say prayers for whoever lost it…
