Educated by Strangers – v2

If we let them, if we are open
moments of reflection, awareness
being presence, in each instance
being educated by strangers
today, all of our lives

Blessed by what we see
as chance encounters
mere random acts, moments,
perhaps all part of the plan
God has for each of our lives

Little moments of reflection
rubbing shoulders with strangers
neighbors, like us children of God,
each one different, precious
each one worthy of love
