into the light

      When you see ugliness in yourself, you can either do your best to hide and mask it (even from yourself) or you can bring it into the light (and breathe a sigh of relief). 

“Fine words hiding shabby thoughts; a friendly face masking a cold heart; . . . these I confess. . . .” John Baillie

“I no longer covered up my wrongdoing.  I said, ‘I will confess. . . .’  Then You lifted and carried away the guilt. . . .” Psalm 32:5
