agirlmirrorI smile each time I read Psalm 139 and get to the lines: Truly you have formed my inmost being; you knit me in my mother’s womb. I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made; wonderful are your works. (vs. 13-14) First I give thanks for my mother and how well I was loved from the beginning of my life. Then I think of my friend who did workshops on positive thinking who used to ask: “How many of you get up in the morning, look in the mirror, smile and say ‘WHAT A WOMAN!’ or ‘GOOD MORNING, HANDSOME!’ Everyone used to laugh until she said she was serious and that God would want us to remind ourselves of the marvelous creation that we are. We could all do well to take her advice. Why not find a mirror somewhere and try it until you believe it and end the exercise with a hearty “THANK YOU!”
