This blog idea came to me through high channels. I was chatting with one of my step-daughters on the phone and she said “you should write a blog about that!” Here goes.

Remember those bracelets? I think my kids wore them in the nineties. I believe the teachings of Jesus, along with those of all the great Prophets, provide a wonderful example, and I’ve been wondering if some–maybe even some who wore the bracelets–may think granting priority to Christian refugees is okay. Maybe even a victory. I don’t know. Does anybody think it’s okay? What Would Jesus Do? What comes to mind from my Sunday School teachings about Jesus are words like compassion, acceptance, and loving-kindness. Toward all.

Imagine with me the following scene:  Jesus is walking along the shore and a crowd is following. He turns and says, “Follow me.” But before he turns to walk, he studies the crowd. “Females and non-believers . . . next trip, maybe.” He waives them aside and calls loudly, “And if you are poor, or gay, or your skin is darker than mine, if you’ve ever been convicted of a crime, or wear a burqa, you can’t come. Mental illness or disability? Sorry. .” He says quietly to one of his disciples, “Can somebody please find a place for these people?” He walks, half of the original crowd now following.

Absurd, Right? Absurd!

Matthew 11:28  Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”

Romans 2:11 “For God shows no partiality.”

The Universe is guiding me on an incredible adventure: my Plan B. I write here to share bits of my Odyssey, hopefully to inspire, encourage, or extend the virtual hand of friendship.

When I quit teaching in 2014, I could never have imagined the growth I would experience through travel, writing, reading, therapy, and introspection.

I believe human connection and compassion will go a long way toward our healing, and the best way to connect and feel compassion for one another is through the sharing of our stories.

Thank you for joining me here. I appreciate you and may we grow together.
