Different, Yet The Same...


Living from Glory to Glory Blog

I was flying our friendly skies on this September the 11th,
It was very different because there was so much security!
You almost could feel the fear or panic!

I saw so many different walks of life;
Every race, and creed and age!
My heart was full of compassion and hope!

We are all so different, yet we are the same!
Our journeys may cross each others path,
Will be a blessing to each one we come across?
May I aspire to be a blessing

I grew up in a time of a cultural turning point!
I was a friend to all those of different groups or clicks that were,
So prominent in school.
Why or how they all liked me still shocks me!
I guess it was because I was just being me!
I had no agenda. I just truly loved people!
And on the other side of that coin, they loved me in return!

We can all feel strongly about a certain thing,
But it is when we think everyone else should or must see it in the same
way is where the problems start to surface.

I saw a woman who had no hair from cancer treatments,
I talked with her and just chatted.

I saw a very old man that was telling his story about how things
were, when he was a young man.

I saw a woman who was scared to death to fly;
I tried to calm her.

I saw a young woman who could speak only a few words of English,
she had missed her flight, and I helped her get her papers
and passport arranged in her folder.
(She looked me in the eye and said I am so lost)

I saw a child riding on his suitcase like it was a skateboard.
I laughed at him as he had not a care in the world!

I have my opinions
You have yours
We all have this same life to live...
Live it as well as you can!
Remember opinions can change...
Things can change in a blink of an eye!

I think that is one of the best testimonies of God at work in someone's life....that giving of self with no expectation of getting anything in return.

Wonderful post- xo Diana

Ahhh. I hurt for the lady that said, "I am so lost." Don't we all feel like this at times. What a beautiful post. You were the hands and feet of Jesus. We need more of this in our world today.

I am (with your permission), copy and use your last paragraph. I love it!

I love your observations Rox; I know what its like traveling; exhaustion, confusion and even fear seem to be all around. I love how you reached out to some of those people. I am so thankful for the encouragers. When I have been in places, struggling to find my way, I felt as if everything was going to be all right when some one encouraged or helped me with just a word or two. I have been in airports (and I won't mention the city), where there was nothing but rudeness… and that from the people who were hired to help. How wonderful when someone has a kind word to say. I am glad you are back safe and sound. I have loved hearing of your visit. Have a nice weekend.
Love and Blessings,
Pam

Hi Roxy, your observations put into words are a blessing. Each and everyone has their own walk through life. You took the time to help those in need and that's what life is all about. It is in the giving that we truly receive. Giving of ourselves in a way not expecting anything in return.

You are a joy and a blessing my friend.

Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comment.
Have a nice evening and special Sunday.
Hugs

Well said Roxy...:) What a blessing you must have been to those folks at the airport. Have a blessed Sunday.

Hugs, Vicky

Your description of your travelling companions is so generous and kind, Roxy ~ would that more people had your attitude! Open mindedness, respect and a friendly attitude is seeing people as valuable human beings, not just a 'crowd' or the 'public'.
I think that is a deeply Christian way!

Ceil said...

Hi Roxy! It sure sounds like you were a blessing upon blessing in that airport. How God used you, and that's because you want to be used. Beautiful!

Being yourself is being the best person you can be, and you are so aware of that fact. That is wisdom.

Hello my dear friend! Compassion - one word yest a powerful work! One word that we all need to practice every day. Thank you for this post, dear one.

Thinking of you, praying for you, and sending much love your way!

I once heard an old saying that I think applies here:
People will more attention pay
to what you do, than what you say.

Being kind to strangers and those less fortunate is the ultimate giving.

If we just spend a little time with others we can reach out and help and that small help can make all the differences. I am sure you made these people happy by just stopping and chatting for a short time in their day.

Have a wonderful week ahead.
