Behind every life there's a fascinating story. What have you learned from the story of someone else's life? I enjoy meeting, "strangers" and talking with them because I learn so much.
Today I met two awesome guys within minutes from each other. One guy is a professor in Chicago teaching medicine, (I didn't get his name, so I'll call him fella)
The other guy is Eduardo, a homeless piccolo player.
Leaving the library I met the professor fella. He was born in India, but his parents were British. Some unfortunate events caused a split in his family and hardly anyone talks. He taught for some time in Uganda, but, stopped once all of his students were killed. Something he said stuck with me, while smiling he said, "If I could just fix the universe..." After that he went across the street to head home
Right around the corner I met Eduardo. He was playing a piccolo so I stopped to talk with him. I asked him what would be the perfect day for him, he responded, "every day." I was intrigued, why everyday? Eduardo said, "Because everyday I get to breathe again." Eduardo is reading and studying to become an announcer. I asked if I could pray for him and his face lit up!! I started laughing. But it was awesomeness to see his countenance brighten.
Today I learned something from the professor fella and Eduardo...
1. Your social status doesn't change your backstory. Only Christ can redeem your backstory.
2. Prayer lifts up the countenance of another.
I love to write. These writings come from my time in the Word of God, from observation, and trails in life. I pray that you will be blessed as you read them.
