MIRRORS

I look in a mirror called opinion,
Set by people around me:
Oh, my nose is too big:
My belly is too fat;
I don’t think I’ll look at that!

Then I look in a mirror labeled “deeds:”
Set by my expectations:
I’m so long and skinny;
There are holes in my soul;
This mirror is too weird, so I’ll go.

I look in the mirror known as  Riches,
Set by commercials I see:
Oh, I don’t have enough;
I can’t begin to pay;
I will simply walk away.

I discover the mirror of God’s love,
Set here through His precious son:
I can see His likeness
Developing in me;
As He declares, so I’ll be!

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
