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!
