Eyes to See and Ears to Hear

This week I'm studying the Epistle to the Hebrews. I'm also doing some reading of Hosea with my husband and son. I keep returning to the idea of needing eyes to see and ears to hear - and the related concept of having an open heart, a soft heart, a broken heart.

On Sunday my daughter and I were talking about brokenness, and I shared with her some lines from Leonard Cohen I'd recently read:
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.

Light. Brokenness. Offerings. Openness. Eyes to see.

There are all those connections again. I better pay attention.
