faithful forty: day seven

I was looking for a specific pic in my camera, and I found this: a bizarre distortion of my cactus, window, which is much bigger than shown, my salt lamp, and the heat stove. I don’t remember taking this, but it’s somehow perfect for my day today.

We can see what we think we’re seeing, but others may have a totally distorted perception of what we’re showing them. Even if I had intentionally set out to snap a pic of this scene, I would have not used it. As a matter of fact, the more I think about it, I wouldn’t have taken it at all. But here it is; God has an excellent sense of humor…

It’s also the same with words we say out loud. The one’s we intend for other people to hear. But, they can hear something all together differently. I find myself repeating what I said, and wonder if I didn’t say it clearly enough. But it goes both ways – I think I hear something clearly, and understand it, only for the other person to get frustrated because that’s not what they said!

Who’s right? Who’s wrong? Communication is a strange process. As humans, we rely on clear communication, but it doesn’t work out that way. I guess I’m thinking today is a day of distortion. And though God has an excellent sense of humor, I’m hoping it’s a day thing. I’ll even beg if I have to, and I never beg…

Many blessings,

Sandi
