“As in water face reflects face, so the heart of man reflects the man.”
Reflections…what does the word mean to you? Webster defines it as the production of an image by or as if by a mirror.
And while mirrors do provide refections, my favorite way to see a reflection is in water. Fortunately for me, our hometown is surrounded by water! Have you ever seen puffy white clouds with bright blue skies that seem to be perfectly symmetrical with the water? What about colorful autumn trees? Or if you live in a big city, those towering buildings that seem to nonchalantly mirror itself in a fountain below?
Something about all of this reminds me to just “be still”.
Another definition by Webster is a thought, idea, or opinion formed or a remark made as a result of meditation. My mind drifted to a line in an old song recorded by Diana Ross and the Supremes… “reflections of the way life used to be.”
I am a very sentimental person, and so many things remind me of the past. Good memories of days gone by, or the not so good memories that have helped shape who I am. Of course I love to think on the former, but both of these kinds of memories take me back to one truth:
God’s goodness remains the same in every one.
Today I have gathered some photos from the archives of reflections and it is my hope that as you scroll through, you will be able to reflect on the goodness of God with me…
…the God who is faithful and unchanging.
