Mirror Mirror on the Wall

As I was flying into Durango on Sunday, I was looking out my window admiring the mountains.  I love the mountains.  I'm in awe every time I look at them.  They never get old.  They never get ugly.  I love the mountains!  And every time I see them, as my breath is taken away, I thank God for his beautiful creation.  It started as a challenge to myself when I first moved to Colorado--to be thankful for one thing a day (at least) and it was easy to be thankful for the beautiful mountains. . . .

Then it dawned on me. . . I love nature, I am in awe of God's creation all of the time whether it be mountains or trees or flowers or clouds or a beautiful starry mountain night sky. . . why aren't I in awe of the creation I see every time I look into the mirror?  Eeks!  Why can't I look in the mirror with that same wonder and awe?  Am I not a creation of God's?

Hmmmm. . . something good for me to mull over!
