A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.

JusJoJan, Reading: Transparency

“What we hunger for perhaps more than anything else is to be known in our full humanness, and yet that is often just what we also fear more than anything else. It is important to tell at least from time to time the secret of who we truly and fully are . . . because otherwise we run the risk of losing track of who we truly and fully are and little by little come to accept instead the highly edited version which we put forth in hope that the world will find it more acceptable than the real thing. It is important to tell our secrets too because it makes it easier . . . for other people to tell us a secret or two of their own . . . ”
Frederick Buechner, Telling Secrets

I read this today and agreed with it. It is so easy for us to wear our masks, of who we would LIKE to be, and who we want others to think we ARE, when there is a real person of value behind all of that, if we would only let ourselves be real. We are often so afraid to be vulnerable, and because of that,we may miss out on many a blessing!

Take the risk. Let someone know the REAL you.

Do that TODAY!
