Two weeks ago today I went to the eye doctor for the first time in 5 years. My vision really hadn’t gotten all that much worse, but I had enough of a change in prescription that I was told I should get new glasses. They came in the mail today. I always find it to be an amazing feeling the first time you put on a new pair of glasses. You literally see the world in a different way.
May God grant each of us the grace with which to see the world through the eyes of Jesus Christ, and live based on what we see.

I have not read the book by Larry Crabb “Soul Talk,” however, I do believe that these deep conversations are important. I would call them being intimate and maybe even spiritually intimate. I believe or culture and society steers away from true intimacy. When we gather and talk it is about other people, not ourselves. Most people are scared to death to talk about themselves. Besides some do not even consider this polite. Humanity as a whole, though, has a need for intimacy. Therefore we are constantly seeking it, but always avoiding it. Almost like a person experiencing Borderline Personality Disorder, constantly telling people to come here and when they get close telling them to go away.

Dane – Great to see you here! I hope to see you this Thursday!
I appreciate your thoughts. I think you are right on about moving away from true intimacy. And the saddest part is that in my experience there is nothing like it. We often settle for so much less, but true intimacy is a powerful blessing.
Again, thanks for stopping by.
