A Valentines Weekend Wish…

Here is something to be “for” this Valentines Day weekend.  Something we can be. But first the challenge…

The original shimmering self gets buried so deep that most of us end up hardly living out of it at all.

Instead we live out of all the other selves, which we are constantly putting on and taking off like coats and hats against the wind’s weather. (Frederick Buechner)

So the problem is that we often live from our “other selves.”  What then is the solution?

To see in each other, to see in our loved one, to see as God sees “the original shimmering self.”   Just see it.  Despite appearances to the contrary.

Your loved one will notice.

Happy Valentines Day.
