A few months ago, I had a dream that affected me deeply.
In my dream, I attended a family gathering where several people were fighting with one another. I spoke to them about forgiveness, but nothing seemed to change their anger. One of my deceased relatives observed the argument, along with my attempt to make peace. She took me aside and said, "Sometimes what looks like anger is really a broken heart."
Since my dream, I've reflected on those words as they apply to real life. They most certainly apply to the actual relationships from my dream, but they also apply to other areas of life. This dream reminds me that things aren't always as they appear.
