April Photo Challenge, day 2: Reflection of Self

Can you find both reflections of myself in this picture?   Of course, you can't really see what I look like! 

This reminds me of I Corinthians 13:12 -- "Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face.  Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known."

If all you ever saw of me was the reflection in those bowls, you wouldn't know me very well!  Right now, I may think I know and understand a lot about God, but my knowledge of God is like looking at Him in a really bad mirror.  I get an idea of what He's like, but I can't fully understand Him.  His thoughts are so far above mine; His ways so far above my ways that I only slightly know God.  He doesn't do things think He should do!  And He does totally unexpected things that I could never have dreamed up.

Think about Jesus' death and resurrection, for example.    I cannot complete understand how God could send Jesus to become a man, to suffer and die for us, and to rise from the dead.  The sacrifice of His life brought me life.  It's mind-boggling!  I can only see it dimly now.  But some day I'll understand it all!

Hi Nancy,
Just wanted to stop by and tell you that it's very easy to change the width of your columns in the template section of the design. The only thing that it might affect is your header picture???
