A Holy Glance

Six years ago, I attended a high school winter holiday concert where “O Holy Night” was performed by the choir along with a senior male and a senior female soloist.  The exquisite performance captivated every bit of my attention.  At one point, the two soloists glanced at each other at exactly the same moment.  It was a “look” I have never forgotten.  I’d call it a holy glance.  There was nothing lustful or demanding in the immediacy of the glance.  Although it was very brief, the look they gave each other said:

“I see you.  I appreciate you.  I respect you.  I love you.”

God gazes upon each one of us like this all the time.  But whether we know that or not, it sure is powerful and healing when a human being looks at us in this way.  No strings attached.  It seems to be a rare experience.

My spirit soars when I am seen, appreciated, respected, and loved for who I am.
