#370 It seems that #thistles are growing and flowering all over the place at the moment. They caught my eye whilst out walking, and made me wonder about that #pricklyexterior. I believe myself to be #approachable… but am I? I think that I am fairly relaxed and #understanding when faced with something I disagree with or a wrong done to me…but am I? How well do I handle #rejection? Do I have more of a prickly exterior than I would lead myself to believe, or than I would care to be honest with myself about? How often is the beauty and vibrancy of the ‘#meinside’ shielded or hidden from view? Do our perceptions of self match reality…if not, what needs to change – self or perception of self?
Most folks are prickly on the outside, even some believers. We all have things that make our lives rough around the edges. It’s nice how God can help make us less prickly.
