to embrace

      If there’s somebody you really can’t stand, try thinking about her differently. Just for today, imagine what it’s like in her shoes – what she’s scared of and what she dreams about and what she regrets and what her wounds are. By tonight, she might be as three-dimensional as you are.

“The Lord does not see as man sees. . . . [H]e looks at the heart and soul.” 1 Samuel 16:7

“The deepest need of our being is to embrace. If we are prevented from embracing, we hate.” George Macdonald
