Keep thinking about how to mount a great defense, and if I let myself go for too long I can picture blowing up an amazing hot air balloon. Looking at it with natural eyes you would think it to be a thing of true beauty; to see and behold from miles away, with people going ooohhh and aaahhh. Oh but wait, it would be filled with nothing but hot air! Love again pokes a hole into that wind of heated breath and teaches me to listen, to learn, to wait and pray. While this deflating balloon falls back to earth I can see with better perspective, up close and personal.
Mat 26:62-3a And the high priest arose and said to Him, “Do you answer nothing? What is it these men testify against You?” But Jesus kept silent.
