This week can we…

…speak with light and love?

…celebrate the success of another?

…earn our 10,000 hours?

…become a redemptive presence in our relationships, careers, and lives?

…ask greater questions?

…be ok with greater mystery?

…not fight the current of process?

…enjoy the process?

…love an enemy?

…forgive an enemy?

…dare to be seen?

When you’re stuck…

…are you stuck because it’s safer there?

Unstuck would mean freedom, right?

And freedom would mean exposure, right?

And exposure would mean you would be seen, right?

Here’s some gospel creamer for your life’s cup of coffee to be sipped all of your days…

…we want to see you.

…we need to see you.

…and we won’t be the same without you.

So be free. If you need a permission slip, consider this it.

Expose us to the never-ending you that’s alive in the temporary you.

If life is a lesson in learning to love, then it appears we need that to be individually mirrored in approximately 7.4 billion ways.

Alas, no one has ever tried to be you before.

So try yourself on for size.

We’ll all say it fits.
