Coffee and the Lookin' Glass . . .

    There I was standing in front of the mirror this morning shaving and I
    recalled how Grandma always called the mirror a looking glass.

    Now I have this terrible habit of not pronouncing the "g" when saying
    ending in "ing".

    So when I pronounce the words "looking glass" it comes out sounding
    more like
    "lookin' glass".

    Well, I let the thought pass for the time being and continued shaving.

    After I finished shaving I headed into the kitchen and poured myself a
    cup of

    And as I sat there with my cup of coffee the thought of the "lookin
    returned to me.

    So I thought on this for a while and I realized that maybe a "look in
    wouldn't be such a bad idea.

    Something to make us look inside ourselves at the beginning of each and

    To look inside ourselves and think about what positive things we are
    doing to
    strengthen our relationship with the Lord. . . .

    And what negatives we are adding that could damage our relationship with the Lord.

    Well, the coffee is done, and I think tomorrow I'll spend an extra
    minute or
    two in front of the mirror to use it as a "lookin glass".

    Just a thought!


    Luke 6:41-42

    "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?

    How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye."
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?
