[Risk No. 250] I noticed the flight attendant checking us in – she stood out. Anytime someone stands out, whether for the sling holding their arm in place, crutches, or simply something about them that catches my attention – it’s worth taking the risk. I was tired, early AM flights are the bane of my existence. I find that it’s hard to love others like Jesus does when I’m beat. God’s grace is ever near.

I asked her how she was doing on this early Thursday morning. I was headed to Costa Rica and thrilled at one Jesus had in store. She said, “I need a blessed day!” I instantly stopped, offered my hands and prayed for her. Both she and her neighbor attendant let out a rejoicing, “amen!”

God is good!
