The morning time is by far my favorite time of day. I love having that hour before work to enjoy a conversation and coffee with my best friend, my husband. Every morning at the same time I pour my coffee and get my cream out of the refrigerator. One morning this past week I saw a reflection of our lace curtains on our refrigerator. I have never noticed this before so it took me by surprise, the reflection was beautiful. It made me think about what kind of reflection do I have as a person, is it beautiful, is it Christ like? Do people know I have Jesus in my life or are they taken by surprise when they find out? I want to have the reflection of the Lord when people see me, I want my light to shine.

Matthew 5:14-16

14"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. 15Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

Good reminder, Ginger! I hope that we as Christians will allow our reflection to be His love shining through us.

Hi Ginger, What a great post. Do you remember the song from childhood - This Little Light of Mine, I'm Gonna Let It Shine?

I love lighting tea candles here and there in my house. I love the soft glow, especially when it's beginning to get dark. And what a difference that little light does to lit up the whole room...I can't imagine if there are many of us, scattered, shining in the dark, for the Lord's glory....Blessings to you sister Ginger.

Excellent post, Ginger! Our reflection reveals to folks who we are. "As in water face reflects face, So the heart of man reflects man." Proverbs 27:19 Thank you for sharing. And have a lovely week.
