I wish I could unsee what I saw this morning on Facebook.
I saw a photo that disturbed me to my core.
I wasn’t sure what I was seeing at first, so I had to look a second time to confirm.
My initial observation was correct. It was exactly what I thought.
Perhaps, I’m a little sensitive. Maybe it says something about me and my faith. Maybe I need to work on changing my perspective.
I understand why the photo was posted. And, I support the decision to post it.
I understand that it can be viewed in a celebratory light.
I understand that it can have a positive message.
But, it just makes me want to crawl into a corner and bawl my eyes out.
It makes me want to retreat.
It makes me… I don’t even have words.
The photo represents one of my worst nightmares.
And, I don’t know how to deal with it.
As a Christian, I’m a little embarrassed.
I should have a handle on it. But, I don’t.
I’m a mess.
