Not much chance to write lately.. I’m finishing up the last details on a major semester-long project. It’s going very well, just pretty much consuming my life lately.

But anyway, I was writing last week about how everyone wants to be noticed and loved. I said something about how, when we act like we don’t care, it doesn’t make us immune to getting hurt. And it doesn’t.

It does, however, make us calloused towards others and towards love. Our hearts begin to get hard when we don’t let anybody in. And then.. we miss out on all the blessings and joy that God has stored up for us.

All it takes is a little openness. A willingness to take a risk. Just a bit.
