Where do you find the mirror of God that rejuvenates the self-esteem, restores self-confidence, and evokes spiritual beauty?
When we look to the material world to gauge our beauty, worth, or success, our ability to see our soul's perfection becomes a clouded and distant landscape. What would happen if we threw down the man-made mirror of vanity and competition to peer into the eyes of God for our reflection?
Through these eyes, God’s eyes—with sharp clarity and focus—we would see a unique blessed soul with many gifts. Like all of our Brothers and Sisters we were created to shine brightly, together.

Mirror mirror on the wall
you are no longer mine
a man made creation
with a critic built inside
Today I look to God
in the rippling stream
to see the soul's perfection
staring back at me
