What If I Took Off the Mask?

Mary Davis

I’m glad that only God can see my true self; yet, if everyone could look at me through God’s eyes, they would see me in a different light. They would see my slip-ups and be willing to forgive. My family would know when I am angry, but they would understand why. Friends would see me not as the person who needs to diet or who doesn’t wear fashionable clothes, but as a person who is loving and kind. They would know my prayers for them. Everyone would see my anguish over mistakes or remarks I make that hurt other people.

Actually, it might be a great thing if we all could see one another’s innermost selves, don’t you think?
