The Looks

The title of my blog came to me because we get a lot of looks. Many of them are simply curious which I totally understand. Heck, I would stare at our group too!

However, they are not all simply curious.  Some are condemning.  We are judged by some simply because we have a beautiful, colorful family.  If you had seen the rest of the look that this lady gave my husband you would know that it was not a curious look.  It was a judging look.


So sad for her,  I pray that one day she can experience true love that doesn't know any boundaries.

(Edited to distort the face to make the person more nameless.  This could have been any of many and it isn't my intention to harm the person; simply to raise the awareness that this does happen today, just about everywhere.....even in churches.) 


  1. When someone says something rude to us (or stares excessively) I usually say something like, "Well, I guess God doesn't call everyone to do this" or some variation pointing out that it's a calling only some are privileged to have :)

  2. I never knew how judemental I was until I married a Hispanic man..... I am ashamed of the way I once was. Thank heaven for men and women of God who are willing to live beyond the looks and outer appearance of man. ( 7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7)
