The Clearer Mirrors

You know, some of the clearest God Mirrors out there are kids. They really see so much more than we do as adults. And they're usually right (but don't tell them that!)

Maybe one day, when you feel like you woke up on the wrong side of the dirt, it takes your sweet kids to reflect to you how God sees you. "Mommy, you're the best mommy ever!" "There are no mommies prettier than you!" It can totally make your day.

On the flip side, kids can be your God Mirror showing you things that maybe aren't so hot about yourself...maybe something you should change...

"Mommy, when you get done with facebook, can we cuddle?" or "Mommy, don't yell, but I wanted to ask..."

So many times, especially when we've just been fired up about the Love of God, we fail to see that His Love doesn't always look pretty to us. Maybe He needs us to see things that we need to change. (Didn't want to read that part, didja?)

I can be thankful that, in my life, God uses cute, short people to reveal His truth to me! Sometimes that can soften the blow when he tells us things we don't want to (and usually pretend not to) hear.

Thankfully, for us, He sees the big picture, and he'll reveal it to us as we can handle it, and as we need to see it.

Sometimes it's relaxing to think that I'm not in charge of my life. I'll just buckle up, enjoy the ride, and share the story of the Driver with everyone I can!
