we are advised “to make a good impression” when meeting people for the first time. well, first impressions may be important but they should never have the last word. Lasting impressions take a little longer. A truer picture requires a little time and effort. We are so much more than meets the eye. (we are icebergs, remember?)
“The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” Antoine de Saint Exupery
this is good advice which I must take to heart (pun intended) and put into practice every day. My world is full of invisible people waiting to be seen and icebergs waiting to be discovered.
sincerely, Grace Day
