This is burning in my heart today so here goes. I have felt this since last evening.

Do we really know who we are talking to?

How do we know that the person in the checkout counter that just snapped at us isn't someone that just got some very bad news about there health.

How do we know that the waiter that is so very sad and less than attentive didn't just loose a close family member.

When we see a person abusing alchohol, do we see a drunk, or are we looking at an individual that has never felt love, and just needed someone to notice that he was hurting.

When we hear a child screaming in the store do we just see a brat, or do we pray that mama hears that he or she needs a nap and maybe if you look real deep that child might be really be hungry.

When we see a homeless person, do we see a bum, or do we see someone's brother, sister, or son or daughter. A family may be praying him or her home and you may be an instrument of that prayer.

You may be entertaining an angel unaware. We are the worlds light!!!! with or without money. It may be as simple as someone seeing Do we really know who we are talking to? 2474380249

Thank you for the reminder .....Judge not, you are so right. One never knows what that person has just heard,experienced or what they maybe facing.

Thanks

Wow rocklady...that brought me back to something I experienced years ago.

I was enjoying a few days R+R,having a beer in an hotel...a fellow was in the lounge,falling all over the place,and I said to a passer by something like "look at this jerk"...to which he responded very quietly and sincerely and in perfect English,looking directly into my eyes..."it's circumstances laddie...circumstances."
Needless to say,even though I considered myself tough enough,and having just walked out of a combat zone in the bush,those words hit me like a ton of bricks...and so ashamed of myself I was,and remorseful for my words...which can never be taken back....and they have been with me ever since :(

Thank you,so very much,for bringing us such wise words.

Great story Dinarstar,

I was thinking about the time I went into a resturant and the waiter just seemed so removed. I quietly said to him, Are you having a good day? He looked at me with tears in his eyes and said, I just lost my dad and it is not feeling real great today. I told him that I would be praying for him and off he went. Today I just pray and ask God to touch the person that I have been blessed to feel that day!!

Others have already said it, and I must concur, rock lady. What a marvelous reminder that we cannot know what is in someone's experience, why he or she is behaving in a certain way. These days it seems so many are hurting, but they don't know how to cope. A kind word or smile from a stranger can make the difference between making it worthwhile to get through the day vs. just giving up. Thanks so much for your post.
