The Baggage Handler

A small book with a big message.  I knew just a few pages in that I was going to enjoy getting to know The Baggage Handler and the people he comes across.

Not one person who reads this will walk away without thinking how this impacts them.  I am a little older now but I can remember the baggage I carried from my teens, my twenties,  thirties and even 40s.

What a heavy load we carry! GOD promises that we don't have to carry this heavy burden alone.

Matthew 11:28-30 New International Version (NIV)

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”


 

About the Book

Baggage Handler CoverIn a similar vein toThe Traveler’s Giftby Andy Andrews orDinner with a Perfect Stranger by David Gregory, The Baggage Handler is a contemporary story that explores one question: What baggage are you carrying?
Three people take a flight that will change their lives forever.
Fresh off a run-in with his wife, harried businessman David disembarks the plane angry and impatient.
Gillian thought she would be more excited about coming to her niece’s wedding, but she is just hoping to survive.
Malcolm has gambled everything on this trip to start his fledgling artistic career. To him, failure means working in hardware in what his father calls “a real job.”
After each picks up the wrong suitcase, they make their way to a mysterious baggage depot in a deserted part of the city. There they meet the Baggage Handler, who shows them there is more in their baggage than what they have packed.
A simple baggage mix-up at the airport is more than an inconvenience when it forces three people to face the baggage they are unknowingly carrying around.
