I love seeing the reflections this light
casts onto our stairwell walls.
And as is typical for me...you know...
everything is an object lesson
in this teacher brain...
I got to thinking it is kind of like us.
We, if we know the Lord,
have the light of Christ in us
and we reflect that out to the world.
How does that come out?
Is it pretty, as in the case of cut glass.
Oh, and that could take us down another
The reflection is pretty because
the glass has been cut, stressed, hurt.
Could it be that we can show prettier reflections
if we have been allowed to suffer?
Does this stress make a prettier reflection?
I think it can...
if we use that suffering
to draw closer to our Creator.
To know His hand and trust Him more.
You can see the marks of the
but they show up as beauty because of
the healing hand of our Lord,
and Friend, Jesus.
