It’s A Small World

comm-mwsl (1)

As a young woman visiting Disneyland in California my favorite ride was “It’s a Small World”. The exhibition of dolls dressed in different costumes from faraway countries and places were incredible.  That display gave me a hunger to study and dream of the cultures I had never seen.

My childhood dreams have continued, becoming a driving force in my life today.  Giving me a sincere love and curiosity for other people’s values, beliefs and customs. In a small way those early years formed my life’s perspective of my world view.  Learning to appreciate others and delight in our diversity is a joy, and lovingly serving others through friendship is a gift.

Father, let me see the world and others through your eyes, not my own. Let your love shine through me.


Dear Lord, may I be willing to be hidden and unknown today, yet ready to speak a word to those who are weary.  May your Spirit touch my words and make them Your words that enrich and refresh others. 


Thank you for sharing your time with me today dear friend.

What brings delight and Joy to your life?  

would love to hear your thoughts as we share our journey.

Lovingly, Karan
