Can one be too honest?

The perks of being a night owl is that you receive calls in the early AM which take an interesting turn; it makes you question things in loud silence. Where do you draw the line?

 She said: “Noor, I was too honest, it’s a big mistake to be too honest”.

Isn’t it odd that honesty has become such a negative impulse? We are commended for telling a white lie as though it’s a considerate thought and a generous favour to the opposite party.

Pathetically enough, the truth always gets you in trouble, but no action comes without a consequence. Would you not rather lay it out on the table, be honest, suffer the temporary punishment than cover it up and have it cloud over you for days to come.

Dear darling, let me tell you that honesty does set you free because no lie goes unnoticed.

Further research: After a lengthy duet with Kathem this morning, he even agreed that if you don’t like the colour red on flowers, just say it – if you know what I mean.

Sacrifice, Miracle, Magic.

They say, you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have left- perhaps this is true, it’s a pending notion. On a special day like Good Friday it’s the elements of sacrifice that are heightened.

The term is defined as an offering for a higher purpose. Its magnitude is far deeper than the eye meets, it varies from person to person, and it’s grant. Represented as the purest and most selfless way to love something or someone, I question whether you have ever had to make a sacrifice for a purpose based on a circumstance? If so, hold that thought.

Easter means magic and miracle. It exemplifies elements of love, sacrifice, suffering, uncertainty, and questions justice. It ties in with patience, with comprehending what cannot be understood; it juggles the concept of faith, how and why?

But to make it all fit isn’t often the case. No love comes without an expense, whether it’s yourself, a loved one, your family, your friendship, your career or anything that might be affected. In most cases one or more of these elements will suffer for the greater good of sacrifice.

It’s not always fair, no. But if we can count on something in this season it’s the presence of faith because “To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see” Hebrews 11:1-2.

Happy Easter!
