Yesterday Bella said to me, "Mommy, I'm going to tell you the same truth I told daddy..."

I'm still not sure if the version we got was the actual truth but at least we both got "the same truth".

I was reminded of it this morning as our pastor was speaking about relationships. I wonder which truth I show people about me. I may feel like I am, as a friend use to say, "keeping it real" because I am showing everybody the same truth about myself. But is this "truth" that I have so perfected the real me? Do my friends know that I fail, daily, as a mother? Do the people I go to church with know that I really can't do it all on my own even though I have spent a life time priding myself on just that? Just because I am telling one person the same truth I tell the next doesn't mean that any of it is sincere at all. Out of the mouths of babes!

Bella is one smart little girl, and her words provided a good introduction to your piece. How true it is that not everyone may know the "true" persons we are.

What amazing depth in this short article. I heard a pastor this week say he treats everyone as liars (compared to what the Holy Spirit was showing him concerning them). He wasn't slamming the people, just making this very same point! Very well done.
