Our Journey Together Is So Short


I sat in a bus the other day and at the next stop a loud and grumpy old lady came and sat next to me. She squeezed into the seat and bumped me with her numerous bags.

The person sitting on the other side of the bus got upset, and asked me why i didn’t speak up or say something.

I responded with a smile:

“It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, the journey together is so short. I get off at the next stop.”

Waking up this morning during my devotion, those words got me thinking and I want to share my thoughts with you.

*”It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short”*

If each one of us realized that our time here is so short; that to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, not forgiving others, discontentment and a fault finding attitude would be a waste of time and energy.

Did someone break your heart? *Be calm, the journey is so short.*

Did someone provoke or intimidate you? *Be calm, forgive; the journey is so short.*

Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? *Be calm, forgive; the journey is so short.*

Whatever troubles anyone brings us, let us remember that *our journey together is so short.*

No one knows the duration of this journey. No one knows when their stop will come in real life. *Our journey together is so short.*

Let us cherish friends and family. Let us be respectful, kind and forgiving to each other. Let us be filled with gratitude and gladness.

If I have ever hurt you, I ask for your forgiveness. If you have ever hurt me, you already have my forgiveness.

After all, *Our Journey Together is so Short!*

Happy Sunday to you lovely ladies

  1. Ekema Marylyn! Realisation of the fact is so true and beneficial. We happen not to realise the fact that it is so short all causes the trouble.
    In the process of not having been glad of the fact that we are together, of the instances you refer is mainly because we want the world to be like us. Rather teach them a lesson as to how they must behave. Amazingly it cannot be so and we do not realise the fact.
    Laughing over such matters is the best Mantra.
