Today, on September 11th, we are reminded of how truly short this life is. With the list of our daily duties, it is easy to forget.
It is easy to forget the waiter that messed up our order, is a person. The car that cut us off on the freeway, is a person. The blogger that left us an awful comment, is a person. All people who feel.
When someone else’s life spills some of their hurt into ours, we can’t help but to feel it. We forget they have been hurt too.
But today, we remember.
We remember there is worth in each person we encounter. We are given the opportunity to share a little bit of love, and these are the moments they need us to refresh them the most!
A generous man will prosper,
he who refreshes others will himself
be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25
While we mourn the many who have lost their lives for this nation, let us not forget to take care of each other. Let us refresh one another and be refreshed! Because there is nothing more refreshing than to encourage another person.
Our presence is the best gift we can give. Let us give it to all those around us, for we never know when we will not get the opportunity again. We can be so thankful to have this opportunity today!
Thank you to all who serve and fight for this country, so that we may be free to lift up one another!
