Today, I had the privilege of meeting Christ twice. I was in line at the Post Office when a lady who had some business at the desk turned to leave. I noticed that she walked with crutches, so I opened the door for her when she left the service area and also the facility. She thanked me for doing this. I had to leave my place in line to do this, but when I returned to the line, the lady who was standing behind me in line smiled and gestured to me to take my original place in line. We exchanged pleasantries,and I thanked her for her generosity.
I believe that I met Christ in the lady who walked with crutches, and also in the lady who generously offered my original place in line.
Being surprised at the wonder of childhood
Recognizing the easy joy of a pre-teen
The questions - the discomfort of a teenager
The finding of self in another
The daring self-importance of responsible adulthood
Wonder of a different kind - that is old age
We want to be encountered
We can tell you who we are - better, who we aren't - in case we've scared you.
