  1. Sometimes a simple smile is all it takes to make someone’s day. Yet, how many times do we go through our day and through the motions and never leave a smile for someone. Cashier at the grocery store, a co-worker who needs another thing from us, a child who is grating on our nerves or even our spouses. A simple smile, is all that is needed! Visiting from Looking Up link party.

  2. Well, I mostly look at the weather, instead of kissing the ground when we arrive in Schiphol, Amsterdam, but I know what you mean:) And weddings are often beautiful and/or fun.
    Always good to come “home” but also glad to get back to California where life is so much more comfortable!

  3. I know how you feel about going home. I’ve not lived where I was raised for 40 years and yet going home is a pilgrimage. We go to the top of the Rocky Mountains and glory in God’s creation! Thank you for this post! Wishing you well!

      Whereabouts is home in the Rocky Mountains? They are so beautiful. We are actually in the Rockies at the moment and my blog post next week is going to be about the mountains.

  4. Found you via #DanceWithJesus

    Thanks for this simple story and truth. That’s a wonderful thought to have as you work your way through a crowd, and one I’ll try to keep in mind : ) Blessings!

  5. Oh Rachel, how lovely. Home. And to see the need for God as you walked through the throng of people. Thank you for sharing your words with us here today. I needed to read them today. Hugs! Susan

  6. I know how you feel. I feel this way about landing in Bangkok. It’s homey and there are all kinds of people there. I loved our years of living so multi-internationally. It was a rich time. It’s not that way where I am currently. There aren’t many distinctives and that can be a challenge for me at times.

  7. I LOVED reading this! (I also recently flew into Heathrow to attend my brother’s wedding)

  8. The airport always reminds me of God’s awesome creativity. He made each of us so unique and different! The airport is just one of those places where we can see the diverse population He created. And you are so right – even though there are so MANY of us, He cares about each one of us! Such a great perspective today. Visiting from #intentionaltuesdays:)

  9. Rachel, I love this! Sometimes the world comes to us. Indeed. And we need to be paying attention so that we don’t miss any of those divine opportunities God puts in our way. Love your pictures too. England is the place I’ve always wanted to visit! Thanks for linking up to Testimony Tuesday!

  10. Rachel, what a beautiful thought when looking out into the crowd to realize God knows each person individually. It reminds me of how John described the worshippers in Heaven, “… from every nation, tribe, people and language …” Thank you, Rachel, for reminder that God calls each of us to feed His sheep and show them His love. Thank you also for sharing your heart at #IntentionalTuesday on Intentionally Pursuing. : )

  11. Just imagine the comfortable, cozy sensation when we reach our Heavenly home. Unimaginable really but I’ve thought more of it since my Dad’s passing.

  12. This is such a sweet reminder of God’s love for us. It’s truly amazing how God sees each and every one of us, no matter how many of us there are! Thank you for this encouragement. I would love to feature this tomorrow at Grace and Truth.
