Questions of disbelief

My to do list honestly scares the bejeezus out of me this week. Resolved not to freak out about it, going so far as to don my "Now Panic and Freak Out" shirt. All will be well, but holy schnikes, could I possibly have more stuff to do?

Spam is slipping through at a concerning rate in my personal Gmail account. Who in the world benefits from sending this stuff?

Came across this quote that's worth mulling over and taking to heart
If we are to love our neighbors, before doing anything else we must see our neighbors. With our imagination as well as our eyes, that is to say like artists, we must see not just their faces but the life behind and within their faces. Here it is love that is the frame we see them in.

— Frederick Buechner, Whistling in the Dark: An ABC Theologized
What does it look like to really see people? How wide is my capacity for this, and what drains it? Does faith call me beyond what I think I can do, in the power and love of the Spirit?
