On the Other Side

In the book Walking the Gobi, author Helen Thayer mentions that as a traveler in Mongolia, the custom was when entering a home was to just walk in. She talked about her experience while encountering families that lived in Gers, a traditional nomad home. Well, I am thankful for doors and for the tradition of knocking first. As I ponder on the events of the week and am now looking  at some of the recent photos I have taken, I am thinking that looks can be deceiving. We can see an oh so cute house with a nice little picket fence and it may look so sweet and inviting…

I am just using this cute little place as an illustration..

              But we  don’t know the truth of what is going on, on the other side. Like the saying goes, “You can’t judge a book by its cover.” The intentions of a human heart, we never know until it all spills out in some atrocious manner that we cannot comprehend.
