I have my hands completely open. It is both a posture of surrender and resistance.
"Normalcy" says I am constantly asking God to show me how to grasp hold of Truth. Truth has many facets and interpretations in my mind and heart.
One truth I patiently hope to discover is the truth of balance. I still doubt its existence and the possibility of finding balance. In my Judeo-Christian upbringing I have learned how God chose to walk on earth and experience life as a human in Jesus to demonstrate balance. This example has been a glimpse of the truth that can offer a balance. Hence, I open my hands in both surrender and resistance to communicate gratitude and struggle. I pray and contemplate the opportunity to filter every thought, word, action, and idea through the balance of God.
