I observed the reflective image
Looking back at me


 

 
Today I found a stream
I sat for a moment, my feet in the cool water
~
A reflection was over the water…
I thought I caught a glimpse of myself
~
I observed the reflective image
Looking back at me
I saw my hair
I saw my ears
My eye’s looking back at me
~
Is this reflection as curious of me?
The eye’s appeared to look into my soul
We watched each other
I wondered…
Who will blink first?
~
I noticed a smile…
I got a chill
My Image began to smile at me
~
My refection began to move…
I was sitting still
how could my reflection move without me?
~
I began to feel urgent
A need to run…
The hairs on my neck
Raised
_
A breath came across…
The back of my neck
My reflection was behind me
~
It spoke to me...
In a clear voice
My reflection had come out
Of the stream
~
 It whispered in my ear
“Daddy, it’s time for supper.”
~
What are you reflecting
In your children?

A fascinating reflection of the thoughts of your father-heart. Truly, some of our actions should cause us to be chilled with remorse for the effect they have on our children.

Our dear Joyce Bell (below) said it well in pointing out that "...our children reflect us."

Of course you recognized your reflection: A chip off the ol' block, so to speak. Just remember, also, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree."

An interesting and insightful posting, Richard, with a good lesson for us all.

A NOTABLE QUESTION AND A WONDERFUL WAY OF GIVING A MOST IMPORTANT MESSAGE; WE, AS PARENTS, HAVE AN AWESOME RESPONSBILITY TO THE CHILDREN GOD HAS GIVEN US...TO FOLLOW CHRIST, AS OUR CHILDREN FOLLOW US, THUS, TO BE GOOD EXAMPLES...LETTING OUR CHILDREN 'REFLECT' US. I LOVED THIS WORK...ENJOYABLE AND SO TRUE. THANKS FOR SHARING AND CONTINUED BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOURS, LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS
