Doors of Our Lives

The other day Matt and I were driving in Birmingham. We got lost in some neighborhood and I noticed all the doors on the houses were so beautiful, never paying attention to the houses. Then I looked just at the houses and realized that the houses were just ordinary without the doors.
Then I thought about how that related to my life and the lives of others. How sometimes as people we leave our doors uninviting or how we may even keep them locked up. I started thinking about how different doors related to our hearts. Like the door open but the screen door closed is like the cautious heart. Cause you know if you leave the screen open the vermin get in. And you have open doors and open hearts. You have colored doors, old rusty doors, and even no doors at all.

Now we need to look at our hearts. What door do you have? Maybe you need to rethink your door and maybe open it, paint it, or leave the screen closed, cause you never know who might come knocking.

  1. Very cool parallel between our lives and the types of doors. Glad to see a new post from you---I've missed them!
