That’s just your reflection, silly!

This flower made me laugh out loud.

I can see myself!!

I can see myself!!

Its tall, proud lavender bloom bending way over the edge of the stone wall that contained it. I could just hear its surprise at seeing its own reflection in the stone sidewalk.

But what a meager image that shadow shows. Not nearly the beauty of the lovely lavender petals. Dim and brown, it is only a 2-D, black and white version of the full color original.

“I can see myself!” but the me I see is not who I am.

The words of 1 Corinthians 13:12 leapt to mind: For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.

What a day that will be! When it is no longer just the reflection I am looking at but the real thing. Just imagine the beauty that God sees. In me. In us all.
