It was too windy for my umbrella, and it took three tries to find an ATM that worked. Sometimes the day starts out like that. I usually ignore the distractions, but today it struck me that in tuning out these nuisances, I was tuning out people as well. My protective measures were TOO protective.
Maybe everyone experiences this in a big, bustling city-I don’t know.
I have to keep asking God to help me lift my eyes up to look in the faces of the “people going by.”

No, it isn't a warm, spring day. But there are still a lot of pleasant moments to appreciate.
