3 of 30 : Mirror, Mirror

Day 3 of 30 : “What do you see when you look into the mirror?”

Mirror, Mirror, on the wall - who's the fairest of them all? 
If what's most essential is invisible to the eye, why am I being measured according to how my body looks, how I dress, how much I earn, how much I can give?

Mirror, Mirror, on the wall - who's most worthy of them all? 
If a person's worth is defined by the amount of love, compassion and wisdom he/she radiates, why I am I painfully hard-pounded to fit their own definition of success to be deemed "worthy"?

Mirror, Mirror, on the wall - 
I see an apologetic soul yearning to be appreciated for who she is, and what she does right -
and not lambasted for who she is not, and what she does wrong.

Mirror, Mirror, on the wall - 
I see an angry little girl wanting to be understood for how her thoughts and feelings are conveyed -
and not condemned for even thinking, and feeling that way.

Mirror, Mirror, on the wall - 
I see a lost and hurting child wanting to be found, wanting to be home.

Mirror, Mirror, when I look away - 
I see the universe conspiring to make my wildest, and biggest dreams, come true
I see the radiant smiles of people whose hearts I've touched
I see the beauty of seasons, the glory of sunrise and sunset, and feel blessed by the most High
I see the purpose of how God's timing works, in all things

Mirror, Mirror, when I look away - 
I see how capable I am of changing the world with my passion
I see how my strength is made perfect in weakness through Him,
I see how life is isn't a race to the top, but rather meant to be lived
I see how love really is, how love grows, and how love endures

Mirror, Mirror, break your spell 
Don't let the world stain you and steal what is genuine, and true

Hey, I'd love to know your thoughts :)

The Wonder Human

To be human has its complexities and frailties. It almost feels natural to succumb to life's struggles and disarray, that we tend to forget how God has made us to be filled with wonder. . . and this blog aims to create vivid reminders of what we should never lose, what we should continually celebrate, what we should seek, in every musing, experience, milestone, chapter, and blessing. More about me HERE

Psalms 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

Job 5:9 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.

Psalm 71:17 Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.
