reflections of beauty…

mirrors… 
reflecting the one peering in…
seeing what I like
overlooking the rest

children… 
reflecting the one scrutinizing…
seeing what I don’t like
ignoring the rest

so often I see myself
in the eyes that look back 

I quickly notice their faults
but overlook my own…

why is it that I so quickly see
their small blemish…
really no bigger than a freckle

and so easily fail to see
my gross sin…
a large growth choking out my heart?

Perhaps
God gave me these children
to be a mirror to my heart…

showing me how He sees me…
grace covering imperfection
love seeing beauty.

mirrors…
a lesson in giving grace…
seeing true beauty.
