Sometimes traumatic events in life catapult us into paradigm shifts. This happened to me when my 18 year old son collided with a vehicle while on an early morning bike ride. The accident left him in ICU for 10 days on a ventilator and 5 days in a hospital room to recover. I spent many hours thinking and praying. Life slowed down drastically and we lived one day at a time.
Since the minute the accident occurred, I have met many strangers who have been at our side. These people have had incredible impact on our family. Some of them saved my son’s life. I am indebted to them. With this blog I want to encourage all of us to look at strangers and people around us differently. My hope is that through this blog we would all wake to the fact that all humanity is tightly connected. We are play important roles in each others’ lives, sometimes vital roles. I would like to challenge us all to love our neighbors, those whom God puts on our paths.
My desire is to share from my experience with strangers and encourage you to look at the strangers in your life as well. Jesus tells us that people around will know His love by the way we treat each other.
I encourage you to share from your experience as well.
