Around the World in 60 Seconds

There are a lot of things on my mind during any given minute on any given day. Lately, my thoughts and prayers have spanned the globe. Just today:

:: Bangkok - our friends who live there with the State Department, their three little girls, with all the political unrest

:: India - my cousin is finishing up a 2 week vacation there, beautiful country, beautiful people, images of the caste of people whose purpose in life is to do other's laundry by hand... children and adults alike

:: Hungary - I'm amazed about the number of old friends I have who have European roots. Traveling abroad has brought many of them to my attention. Wish I'd known sooner...

:: France - constantly on my mind, as well as Brussels, Madrid, and the numerous other cities where CAI churches are thriving in a part of the world thirsty for sustenant community.

:: Universities across the US where our now college freshman attend. Miss them very much.

Those are just a few places my mind wanders in any given moment of any given day. When it returns home, I'm astounded my the millions of things that distract me from remembering what's important.

Sometimes it seems overwhelming, doesn't it?

The world is filled with people in need...and we are among them at various points of our lives--an illness, a crisis, a burden...

May we truly love one another. And may this love have arms and legs and wings to reach the darkest corners, the bottomless depths, the soaring heights...
