Crossed Paths

29 Dec

Back in the early 70s when I first wrote “Life’s Handbook” one of the phrases I wrote was:

Every person you meet is brought into your life for a reason. It could be because you have a gift to share with them or they may have a gift to share with you. What you do with these gifts is up to you.

Those three little sentences say a lot, if you are willing to open you eyes and hearts to possible miracles.

How many times have you been introduced to someone only to feel you know them already? How many times have you corresponded with someone online, only to realize you have so much in common that you just might know them also?

Over the years I have learned not to discount little incidences like these. Many times I’ve found we have some connection, whether spiritual or something else that has drawn us together for a specific reason. Most times it is because God had something for us to share with someone. These everyday miracles are hard to ignore and many times on reflection the blessings I’ve received have opened doors to many more friends.

There have also been times where I just passed up possible gifts for no reason other than I was in the middle of my own crisis. This makes me wonder what gift I failed to share with someone or prevented that person sharing their gift with me. Some of these answers I may never find out, but I have learned to not turn my heart away from possible blessings and have opened my heart to share with all the blessings and love I have received.

In my post “Life Is…” I wrote about how we all have a tendency to think our world really sucks, without remembering there is always someone who has it worse. Life is a gift – it is our job to live it to the best of our ability, share our love with everyone, and offer our gifts to everyone we meet. We were brought together for a reason and we should make the best of it. 

So, now when you cross paths with someone new, think of the gifts you have to offer and the blessing you just may receive. Live life to its fullest, sharing your love and blessings for you never know the person that crosses your path just may be that Angel you are seeking. 

Walk daily with God at your side 

Love always,

Ed

    Ed,
    Since the first time you asked me to write you that personal letter about things I had gone through, I knew you were someone special in my life…. someone specifically sent by God to teach me and help me grow in Christ. You have been here for me ever since then and I have grown immensely. Lately though, there have been moments of confusion an uncertainty about who God really is. The political stuff has really upset me this last year. I have felt a little lost, and worried about getting off track, or out of God’s will for me and my life. You are a steadying influence; you always have been. I am relieved and grateful to know you care, that you are taking time to stop and notice me and my walk with our Father. Thank you, Ed. Love you, my brother.

      Adrienne,
      Our paths have crossed and we both were blessed because of it. I know the political concerns you have has brought questions that you can’t answer. However, God has not changed and He is still in charge. Keep Him in the center of your thoughts and world, let Him handle this. Life will be so much better as a result. Love you sister, share that pretty smile and those amazing eyes.
