Through a glass darkly


My daughter took this picture, and I think there is something profound about it. 

Right now, happiness seems elusive, like we’re watching it in the rearview mirror.  Our recent circumstances cause us to look back to a happier time, wishing for those carefree, sunshiny days.  It reminds me of 1 Corinthians 13:12, seeing things through a glass darkly.  Longing for the day when we’ll see our journey with that 20/20 perspective that is hindsight.

I’m getting a sense though, that God put a little message into this picture for us, and I believe it, with all my heart!  Look at the words on the mirror; Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.

Thanking Him while we wait!  Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
