Friday's Musings

While waiting to board a plane a few days ago, I sat by the windows and watched a flurry of activity on the ground. Thankless jobs, for the most part: Workers carrying bags of trash from the aircraft. Mechanics inspecting whatever they inspect. Drivers waiting to transport cargo.

None of those employees greeted me upon boarding, of course, but they affected my experience, nonetheless.

The same is true in life.

No matter how invisible we may seem, or how insignificant our roles may be, we affect the experiences of others as we travel along.

We can compliment, or we can criticize. We can calm, or we can anger. We can cheer, or we can boo. Only we get to decide what type of influence we'll be, and we make that decision every day.

Help me, Lord, to use my power wisely. ♦


  1. Great post!
    When our children were growing up, from a young age to adults, I had several sayings.
    One, "Someone is ALWAYS watching you, even when you don't think they are. Do good!"
    Bless you!

  2. Beautiful...A lovely reminder, my friend.

  3. Mmmm, amen that. We are going into the "Gates of Hell" here in the region, Monday. We'll be in the fire through Friday. Prayers needed for our power to speak wisely or not at all.


  4. Lord, help me too. Great post :)

  5. Oh, how I hope the dear Lord will help me, too. I need Him SO much!

  6. Blessed is the one who realizes that power within them to make a positive difference as unto the Lord! I'm inspired.

  7. I'm glad you left me a comment, because it lead me back to here. This post nailed what I am so trying to remember to show Gods love through me....yes, Lord, help me.
