#Lent : Reflecting Beauty

When we look in the mirror of our lives, what do we see?

Ducks reflecting (mirror-like) @ Maymont Park (Richmond, VA)

Sometimes I focus so much on the stuff that’s wrong with my life (& me) that I forget to thank God for the good bits, especially His love bouncing around inside me that makes parts of me…ย blessed & beautiful.

It’s something to aspire to this Lent, to ask Jesus to take some of the yucky things in our lives and turn them into reflections of His healing loveย  – like the reflection of these beautiful trees in the Japanese Garden pond @ Maymont Park which were bare-leafed and twiggy all winter.

grace, peace & redemptive beauty

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” Ecclesiastes 3:11

      Thank you, Elva. Sometimes itโ€™s hard to shift gears & thank God for the good bits (vs. help, help, woe is me!) Hugs! ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿค—๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒŸ
