As I write these words, I am sitting at the gate A25, Southwest of the Raleigh-Durham airport. It’s been a while since the last time I was in an airport like this, but the feeling is still the same: amazement.
Only through the purchase of my airplane ticket and the need to travel home, I’m in a place where I’m surrounded by faces that I have never seen before and, probably, will never see again. While that sounds a little depressing, I don’t
mean for it be that way. Instead, this is a very humbling experience because it is a reminder of just how big this world is.
How often do we go about our day-to-day life and feel as though it could be contained within the glass of a snow globe? For me, this ha
ppens very often. When I examine my own life, I see the joys and the struggles, the hopes and the fears, and everything else in between that fills my days. When I am in a situation like this, sitting in the airport though, I imagine the story of my life and then think to myself, “Every single person waiting at this gate, walking in this airport, has a life story of their own.”
Do you know what’s even more amazing than this statement?” That our Heavenly Father cares for each and every single person in here and loves them more than they could ever imagine, whether they realize it or not.
Well, I think that’s enough philosophy for the moment because now it’s time to get an ice cream cone. I’ve been sitting across from a Cinnabon and Carvel yogurt shop for the past two hours waiting for my plane, so a chocolate and vanilla swirl ice cream cone sounds really good right about now. Have a wonderful and God-Blessed day today!
