I saw God's image in a homeless man.

Today I was volunteering at a post office. A man in an old jacket with uncombed hair came to the counter. He had a wallet in his hand, and put it on the counter. He told me:   L3 W0 \- J2 J- Q/ U9 T
"I am going to send it back". 2 \5 I" l: s! ~- v" \1 \
I did not understand what he meant by "it", because usually people would send a letter or a parcel back to the sender, and I did not see he had any of those. So I asked him:2 E3 n) s; r9 M" ?
"I am sorry, what are you sending back?" 5 c  O( P2 r# i
He said, "the Wallet, I am sending back the wallet." Then he added: "I am going to pay the postage." 4 J9 Q. p  E- G, P5 f  D0 [0 b
"Oh, you found a wallet, and you are going to send it back to the person who lost it?" ' J2 B# v* e) u" B
"Yes, I did."
# U) a& b9 D* `6 HFinally I understood: this dishevelled man found a wallet, and he was going to return it to the owner by post.
$ b! B5 I  F, G7 Z5 r8 @8 F0 @He took the ID card from the wallet, and showed me the address of the loser of the wallet. I saw there were several one-hundred bills in the wallet. / T. F% K4 ~- s% |( H: x2 `
"Are you going to take some money from the wallet to pay the postage?"
. c$ o" R* m* Q9 q"No, I am not. I do not do those things.": F7 }5 L  [& ]. e5 |
He took out his  wallet, which was nearly worn-out, small, and almost empty. There were some coins inside.
# E; l+ r/ D) LI gave him a bubbled envelope, and instructed him where to write the addresses. He wrote the owner's address, but stopped at writing a return address. He asked:
, `6 Y  J, ?7 j& O% s"Is it okay that I do not write this part?"
% M5 j1 C9 `! d: ]3 u# o0 @0 Z3 d"Yes, you may." I thought he must want to be a nameless hero. But he said:# t0 B) S$ [/ ?! ^# o+ R
"I do not have an address.", |6 N, V  |6 P7 l9 F" a5 r  |
I was surprised: "oh, where do you live?". [4 ^  d- F: ^0 H+ X
He did not look up, and said: "I do not have a home."
1 s. z* W9 \5 l3 d1 vMy heart had a sudden jump. I realized that this is a homeless man who found money but was sending it back to the person who lost it.

真的理解不了。我能做到的就是用钱包里的钱付邮费,再附上个note ------- 用了你的钱付的邮,不用谢。
