Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

What Do I Reflect?

Rearranging, moving up and down, slanting more to the left, no the right…positioning the mirror in the precise location. Varies mirrors paraded their reflections through my home. I arrange them to expose the finest of the room. I scrutinize the areas they reveal - no clutter, empty ceiling, toilet, floor, but rather enhancing the beauty of our dwelling.

As I was admiring the beautiful roses displayed on my dresser, the strips, the color, then their reflection from my mirror prompted me to ponder my reflection.

My heart's desire is to mirror my Savior.

His image isn't what is usually revealed. I easily can display the world's culture, my own lack of patience or forgiveness, wounds, anything but Him.

The only way I can manifest my Savior is for me to spend more time at His feet. To allow him to rearrange, move up or down, slant me to the right or left, and even turn me sideways…positioning me to reflect His image.

II Corn.3:18 "But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit."

I think the 3rd and 4th chapters of II Corinthians are some of the richest in Scripture. Thanks so much for sharing your insight and with a great analogy to boot.

that is so true. we try and try to be
like Him, but when we spend time
with Him, His goodness is read in
our faces and hearts.

thank you for the sweet reminder!
