Powerful concept, Avery!
Yeah - i too need to connect and build a bridge to the man i could have been - or am meant to be - maybe as much or more than the lost child.
As it is, I am just existing in a grey limbo that is neither a state of innocence nor maturity - but a half-completed person - not even fully a MAN.
This makes sense to me in a very deep way. I want to know more. But don't know how to do it. Hope others will weigh in on this one, too.
We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.
- Paul, II Cor 4:8-9
