I believe everything and everyone that touches our lives does so for a reason. I had such an encounter yesterday. It was brief, but good—our conversation lasted only a few minutes—but it left me with the firm believe that our paths had crossed for a reason, and many others would be touched by it as we went our separate ways. Then, this morning I came across a post from another blogger that I’d shared with my readers four years ago. I revisited her blog, and was once again touched and encouraged by the things she’d written. And there it was again, that passing by of another that left a mark—a good one—on me. (Her too, I think.) The paragraph below is what she said in her post four years ago that touched me and remained with me.
Have you ever been in a funk and totally zoned out? Perhaps standing in a line at a register waiting to be checked out, and a baby catches your eye and smiles at you? In a split second, you are transported to a place of innocent joy between you and that smiling baby. You smile back only to receive an even bigger smile. At that moment, nothing else matters, not bills, being late for an important date, or even what has you really worried. It is as if God Himself, reached down to hug you. The innocent exchange reminds you of bigger things. Maybe even a glimpse of a speck of what heaven will be like. Nothing but innocent joy.

It’s a good read.
