I just came across another Tabor Vision example in Metaxas' biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The book describes how Dietrich's father had been invited to attend an
"open evening" at the home of a well-known physicist, Oscar Meyer (they probably had all sorts of fancy hot dog hors d'oeuvres):

"There," wrote Karl Bonhoeffer years later, "I met a young, fair, blue-eyed girl whose bearing was so free and natural, and whose expression was so open and confident, that as soon as she entered the room she took me captive. This moment when I first laid eyes upon my future wife remains in my memory with almost mystical force"

The last lines of this quote emphasize another feature of the Tabor Vision: it not only emboldens us to give ourselves to another person, but also sustains us during the inevitable difficult times ahead.
