So I haven't posted in like.. a year. Or something.
Haven't had much to say, I guess. If God can go silent for 400 years between the book of Daniel and Matthew, why can't I?
But I was watching a movie today (World Trade Center) and made a mental observation, partly from life in general and partly from the movie itself..
How when the average sort is looking for a significant other.. to some degree or other they're looking for someone attractive. At first glance simple "flaws" if you will, disqualify potential persons.
Say if their hair is parted funny that day, or they wear their shirts too big or their smile is crooked. Whatever. BUT... when that person is eventually found, and they court, marry, form an emotional bond, etc..
And that significant other comes into some tragedy like they're crushed under a building or something, and after being trapped for days and coming out covered in ash, with burn scabs on their face and chapped lips and their eyes are glazed, none of these external things keeps the other from bestowing sincere physical affection on that person, whom they would have initially rejected for simply having a bad hair day.
Amazing what an emotional bond can do.
