“Window Opener-Wallah?” you shout across to me, “What exactly do you mean?”
“Ah well,” I say, “What happens when you open your windows in the morning after getting up from bed?”
“I let the sunshine in!” you say, looking at me hesitantly.
“Right! In one movement of the opening, you let the beauty of the outside come in, after the darkness of the night!”
So often looking at the brokenness of people around us, we wonder what role we can play, and I like the example of being a window opener. We don’t try to open all the windows, we just open a window near us.
You just cater to the need of that one person in despair, that one person who needs a small bit of financial help, or just your shoulder to cry on. Just open that small window within your reach and let golden rays flow into their lives.
“But Bob,” you say, looking at me doubtfully, “That single window I open doesn’t help the rest of the world lying broken around me!”
When you open that window, others around you see what you are doing. They see you feeding that stray dog looking helpless and desolate outside, and even if they are not dog lovers their hearts also see the change in that animal, and they feel compassion flowing through them.
When you open a window and let the sunshine into someone’s life, by just saying a kind word or doing a good deed, it starts an epidemic and soon a contagious movement of window opening follows.
They see the sunshine you have allowed in and they want to bring in the same.
There’s another aspect too.
I believe that such window opening’s are also glimpses of heaven.
Because in your kind deed or gesture you are also giving the world a peek of the glory that lies above!
“That,” you are actually telling the world, “that bit of sunshine you just felt is just a bit of the warm embrace a God above is willing to envelope all of us with!”
Because a window is actually just a hole in the wall isn’t it?
A hole that shows us the beautiful outside, and when we actually go out and feel the breeze and see the trees and flowers, we realize what that little peep told us, “There’s more outside!”
So be a window opener-wallah to the world; do a small deed to someone in need and show others around what loveliness they can bring about by opening a window to someone..!

Be the difference is what my wife always tells our children. Let us all become the examples of goodness, honestly and truth. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good deeds and give the glory to our God on high.
Every small act of compassion can cause a ripple effect and inspire others to follow suit. Let’s not wait for others to act first but begin with ourselves, and make a difference to someone’s life. After all, it is what we give and share that forms our legacy.
Our neighbour was visited by neighbours one day, when abroad, as he hadn’t opened his curtains in the morning. They realised he was sick. So they helped him get the medical aid he needed. My dad liked the cross ventilation with open windows, like I do too. The sunlight brings in vitaminD
