Tom, Thanks... I hear you. I guess my struggle is that now I do have a group of friends that know absolutely everything about me, including the times that I stick my finger up my nose in the presence of a beautiful woman...

This post really resonates with me Steve. Years ago I offered a message to the youth group I lead that I called "Known only to God". The main point being that we only let people as far in as we are comfortable. The only one that sees all the way in is God. And even with this knowledge I still try to hide from Him. Part of me understands deeply Paul's conflict when he said "I long to be free of this body of sin and death." But until that time I've got my group of friends. And though we've known each other for years and shared many hard times we still find it awkward to be transparent. And then I've got the group of guys (you included) at the brass. And while we may not dive deep often, I know that I'm with brothers. And sometimes just being with people that are striving for the same goal that I am is comforting in it's own right. We miss you Steve. Be safe! Tom
