#BigRead13: Day 33: Attitude

#BigRead13 Thoughts how could you hate what a man did and not hate the man? But years later it occurred to me that there was one man to whom I had been doing this all my life — namely myself. from Mere Christianity - an interesting one in which C.S.Lewis indicates that we continue to love ourselves despite what we do - reminds me of 'speck in brothers eye' ... but also makes me wonder as I often…

#BigRead13: Day 32: Humble

Today's #lentphotos is "perspective" - I like the idea of seeing things from a different perspective ...
