The story our lives tell

Your neighbor down the street. The man pumping gas just ahead of you at the self-service pump. The woman who drives the school bus and picks up your kids each morning. The retired couple who run a community clothing drive each year to help families in need. The teenager who bags your groceries. Every life has a story to tell. In fact, there are more remarkable stories in each individual's experience than we might imagine. We may sometimes have to listen closely to hear them, and we may have to open our eyes, with a generous spirit, to see the real wonder and victory that reside in everyone. But the stories are there

The other day I was standing in line at the bank to make a deposit. This is a small bank. The tellers know their customers by first name, and they always do a little more than just transact your business. At the next window, the teller was commenting to her customer about how well he looked and how glad she was to see him on his feet.
