Is this too close? Not for me with the one. Yes, I know watching every moment of my life can be draining because I truly have not come close to climbing all my steps and have fallen many times a long the trip. Yet knowing I’m this close will allow all my faults to be in closer view, those that are in my full control and one’s they environment around me hits me with. I will be judged not from a distant view but one based on what is truly on the ground. Some might want to be distant so they can “get away with more” but then prayers might be distant as well. I’d rather be close and know that G-D see’s me directly for what I am and what I’m trying to be.
