Yesterday we were on a four-hour flight home after a week-end of Church meetings. As the plane filled up, there was a young man across the aisle from us who was obviously suffering. His eyes were red and he constantly was wiping his face with a tissue and blowing his nose. He would alternate from putting his head on the tray in front of him to pulling his cap over his face to lean back and attempt to sleep.
My husband even pointed this out to me and I began praying and prayed off and on all the way home. At one time, I almost wrote “God loves you” on a slip of paper and pass over to him but didn’t, but did continue to pray about his true identity as a child of God. My heart filled with love for this young man and as we landed and were in line to leave the plane, my eyes met the clearest blue eyes as I asked him if he was feeling better. He replied that he was and I told him I had been praying for him the entire trip. We just smiled at each other and I will never see him again but I know we will both remember that trip. In my heart, I knew he was well.
