TELLING FACES

The way you get to know yourself is by the expression on other people's faces.
~Gil Scott Heron


People watching has always been a hobby
 
Early on during a photography class, we were challenged to sit quietly at airports and capture as many emotions as possible.
 
Certain glimpses into others' world brought questioning.

Watching expressions un-changing on a face... no expression, outward signs of not caring...not listening?

Seeing glazed frowns...an irritation at what's being said or concern for those speaking?

Noticing others' speaking right on top of what's already being said, as if it isn't being said, having no concern with the first words or even their trespassing on them?

Hurried travelers passing bell-ringing Salvation Santas as if not there, seeing through and past.
 
What expressions are you conveying to those around you this Christmas Season? 



Romans 12:3  ...Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.

Wow. What a thoughtful and thought provoking post. I'm going to think about this today (while looking peaceful and happy - ha!)
