Scary Words

“Oh, I know who you are. I’ve seen you…”

Scary words. When did they see me? What was I doing? Picking my nose? Scratching some unsavory body part clandestinely? Wearing old clothes—undoubtedly that. Or was it even more sinister?

Was I wearing a grumpy frowny face instead of a smile? Was my attitude or expression akin to the signs some folks post on their gates: “Beware! It Bites!”

Was I slumped over with worry and distress resembling depictions of Atlas condemned to hold up the heavens and the sky—an unacceptable  posture for a Christian who is to cast all their care upon God.

Was I being kind? Or unkind? Loving or spiteful? Helpful or impatient?

A smile is such an easy and essential fixture to install—but did I forget and leave my smile at home. “I’ve seen you…”

What did they see?

  1. Haha, yes indeed. Those unanticipated moments when someone catches you unawares. Well, Steph, however you were seen, we all know what a glowing soul you are and that will always be evident. I hope you’re okay, my friend. Give Savannah a hug for me!
