Reach Out & RejoiceBy
As a society, we used to hold each other up, without questions, without judgment, without any kudo’s needed at the end of the day.
There are a few things that lead me to this post and I am not quite sure the direction it will end up in, but look at Stevie over there.. opening his arms and his heart towards the end of his life, celebrating what?
We all live on different railroad tracks of life, but there are times that those tracks intersect, for reasons that you should not question so deeply, because in the midst of those questions, the true meaning of the intersection get’s lost.
I got a surprise phone call from someone with an apology that was long overdue, and the conversation rejuvenated my faith.
I heard about a father who lost his 6 year old son, 2 days before Christmas, that sent chills up my spine.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, remember 9/11 and the courtesy that strangers offered?
Is our time best spent on….
if Michael Jackson’s doctor is guilty?
if Fergie is wearing a bikini?
if there is something on TV we don’t like?
if people have different interests than our own?
if we don’t agree with the next person?
if we pray to our God with only the difference of his name?
We are human and we may not agree, have a like for, or understand what the person next to you is thinking, doing or saying or feeling, but we can reach out and rejoice if it is what is making them happy and we can reach out and give support when that is what is needed.
Selflessly and unconditionally……..
