Two things had come together at about the same time.
a word from someone very close to him that had made him wonder if something was up...if there was some disfavor in the air...a hint of suspicion or distrust.
then came the last blog...talking about speaking the truth in love....and highlighting the fact that sometimes we don't speak the truth and just smooch things over and look the other way.
coming within hours of one another, the two things proved to be alarming.
And about "aim?"
The "him" in this blog is a marksman.
He can hit small targets from hundreds of yards away,
in fact, uses weapons that hold records for flawless shooting at over 2,000 yards distance.
But now his aim was off...and his buddy said. What's wrong with you?
Our aim is affected by our feelings.
Clear hearts and focused minds make a lot of things in life hit the intended targets.
So what to do if our "aim" is off?
He faced what he was feeling with open candor.
He asked questions to see if there was distrust.
He explained how circumstances had placed him in a corner.
He was vulnerable and open.
And it was all a bunch of miscues.
And he cried a bit...and others did too.
And then there was laughter.
And a good night's rest.
So....how's your aim these days?
Got a few things in the air that need to be cleared up?
Better do it....
because the path of life is just too short
and eternity is just too long
to miss the mark.
