I was on tour last week.  I was at the gate waiting for the group ahead of me to deplane. Busying myself, checking everything that I needed –  I had my tour itinerary to go over while in flight, my sunglasses on my head,  my ear buds & iPod in my pocket, after all, once I’m settled, I may want to sleep, my book in case I couldn’t sleep, Chap stick, snack, water & phone at the top of my bag, boarding pass in my book. Once I was ready, I, I , I, me, me, me, all about me, I looked up….

A gentleman emerging from the plane, his old life on his back, military jacket with patches signifying his military accomplishments and his new life in his hand, a walking stick for the blind; signifying an even greater accomplishment. Sacrifice and survival.

I said thank you to God for this man. I am honored in my small way to share with tour groups the sacrifice of God and man.

God who knows our names, God who knows everything there is to know about us and LOVES us. Men and women who sacrifice for us every day, people they do not know.

Amazing grace.

I threw all my “stuff” in my bag and got out my bible for the plane ride.  That’s all “I” need.
