Are You Going My Way?
A truck driver was hauling a load of Penguins going to the San Diego Zoo when his refrigeration truck breaks down on the freeway. The driver got out of the cab and was looking at the engine when a second truck driver stopped and asked if he needed any help.
The Penguins’ driver explained that he is taking the penguins to the zoo and asked if the other man could take the penguins to the zoo for him. He also agreed to give him $500.00 for extra expenses.
Some hours later, the second truck driver drove past the first one, who was still waiting on the freeway for help to come. The Penguins, however, were still on the truck!
“I thought I asked you to take those penguins to the zoo,” shouted the first driver. The second replied, “I did, but I had some money left, so we’re going to the movies. Author unknown
Reflections: Are You Someone’s Hero?
Over the last few weeks, as we celebrated Memorial Day, I have thought about the different seasons of life and the Heroes I looked up too. How the heroes and faces have changed for me as I enter each New Year.
When I was a young girl, my mother was the most important person in my life, and I wanted to be just like her. But soon I was in third grade and met the beautiful Mrs. Mitchell. She was kind, patient, and recognized the heart of a wounded child. How I loved her, I was going to be a teacher just like her.
However, roads bend and turn taking us on new adventures to find out who we are, and what we will become. And exciting time but also a fearful time for me. I loved to laugh, sing, dance and wanted to be popular in high school that is what would make me happy. Friends, lots of friends.
I didn’t think much about heroes in my life then because I was too busy, trying to please and keep up with everyone else.
As I look back, I can see a long line of the heroes that God sprinkled into my life. Each one pushed, encouraged, and inspired me to become a better person. To reach for my dreams and never stop, and when I slow down and get discouraged, they cheer me on with their prayers.
To have Godly mentors who showed me that loving God, putting him first and serving him would give the greatest joy in life, each one has blessed me.
The Bible says we need to remember all that God has done for us and lean on his promises.©
I remembered the works of the Lord: for I will be mindful of thy wonders from the beginning.
Tell your children about it in the years to come, and let your children tell their children. Pass the story down from generation to generation.
Who are some of your heroes? I would love to hear from you.
Thank you, dear friends, for spending your time with me.
Have a great week, HUGS
