So we go home and kick off our shoes for one more day because we are still alive. Our journey is not yet over, but one day it will be and then all of our friends will put on their shoes and stand around feeling the other side of love as it relates to us. I hope in my case, that while they are standing around, they realize what I realized today. We are symbiotic. There are no one way encounters or relationships. We touch each other and affect each other whether we realize it or not. Significantly. When God places someone in our orbit, it is not unintentional. I will try to be more deliberate in my interactions now because of this awareness. Thank you for being in my orbit.
"The same God that placed that star in a precise orbit millennia before it appeared over Bethlehem in celebration of the birth of the Babe has given at least equal attention to placement of each of us in precise human orbits so that we may, if we will, illuminate the landscape of our individual lives, so that our light may not only lead others but warm them as well." ( Neal A. Maxwell That My Family Should Partake, p. 86)
