In Others’ Words: Mask On, Mask Off
It’s Friday. I usually keep my Friday blog posts light. Short. It’s Friday, after all.
But Anne Lamott’s quote took me back to a time when God was changing me … reclaiming parts of my life I thought were unredeemable. And in the midst of all his changing and reclaiming and redeeming, God told me the masks I wore had to go.
Me? Wearing masks?
Oh, yeah. I toted around a virtual suitcase of ’em.
At one point in the process, it felt as if an invisible mask had slipped and was hanging off my face. Try as I might, the invisible-but-weighty mask wouldn’t go back in place. And believe me, I tried to reposition it.
There were a few people — a very few — who saw me at my worst during this time. Accepted me. Prayed for me. And because of their acceptance … their patience … the safety of their loving relationships, I was able to remove the mask. And leave it off.
In Your Words: Who in your life do you trust enough to see you at your worst? And what about masks? Do you love ’em … or are they not a part of your daily attire?
