Non Fiction
Look Deep Into The Mirror

Victoria Thomas Poller

I’ve recently noticed that the older that I get; I don’t look at myself in a mirror as deeply as I use to. When I put on my make up or see a full view of my entire countenance, I look over most of the new lines, wrinkles and droops that were not as visible yesterday. If I were to concentrate on every little bump, lump and imperfection, I’d be getting a “nip/tuck” every year. Please don’t let this be an excuse for finding a lump in your body and not getting a Mammogram, Pap Smear or any other scheduled exam. These schedules must be kept in order to keep up with the functioning of these physical bodies of ours.

God looks beyond our faults and sees all our needs. God sees the Big Picture and not the little imperfections we see in ourselves. He has a plan for each of us, which was formed before we were born. It is our duty to discover what that plan (or destiny) is and then ‘get busy’ with those tasks. “Have fun getting it done – Let’s get busy.”
