Oh hi, is that myself I see in the mirror?

One of my good, treasured literature, art, and word loving friends tamie added me to her blog and I have gone to friends blogs through her blog… it is incredible how technology brings people in full circles; back but not back; and then I think of my blog, here, and well am sometimes not sure if I should groan, blush or just shyly say “hi” that is me here in this blog, though I often feel it is a very little sliver of me, but what is to be expected…

And perhaps the me always changes; currently me in the mirror means I am probably talking to my cat to be precise; I have this tall thin IKEA mirror and usually if I look in it I am either looking around the corner at my cat or am holding her and saying “look at my glory cat” because her eyes have two shades of blue, if the lighting is right, so that it is a darker and then lighter blue as you go in toward the iris. My church (this really does correspond, really) has more than life-size panel of the Resurrection of Christ and the darker to lighter blue is radiating from Christ, who is a blaze of white as He rescues Adam and Eve in Hades; blue-showing His glory. So Cleo reminds me of this every time I look at her, my glory cat.

What do you see in your mirror?

I see a passing acquaintance ... someone who looks familiar, but is yet strange to me...

I see the passing of time, in someone who looks older than I thought they were...

I see someone who frequently disappoints me, someone who has betrayed me, someone who has provoked my wrath, even my hatred...

I see someone who is beloved of God, but I don't see that...

I see myself.

I see someone I would be friends with if it were anyone but me.

hmmmm...

perhaps we have to learn to be friends with ourselves? this can mean many good things that i have yet to learn; for if we want the best for our freinds, and if we are one of them, as it were, then we would do as God requires; following the Church as our mother; confessing our sins to our father;

and some how learning to live in God's love instead of our fear...

thank you for your words V and S

I see this creepy guy who's always in the men's room at the same time as me. I think he's stalking me.......

I see a son, I see a father, I see a brother. I'm beginning to see an Ex-husband of someone I was married to....
Funny, the mirror is more crowded now.
Thanks Elizabeth
