ten questions

“so God created man in his own image,
in the image of God, he created him;
male and female he created them.”
{genesis 1:27}

a reflection of you.
that is what we are intended to be—

do you see your reflection when you look at your creation?
do you see any aspect of what you intended us to be?

there are days that i cannot imagine you see much...

can you see your reflection in our acts of faith, however small?
do you see yourself when one of us puts aside our selfishness
and reaches beyond ourselves?
do you see you when, in our feeble acts of bravery,
we set aside the fear that can be our uniform and choose to fight
for those who cannot?
do you see yourself when we look at and love those it is easier not to see?
when we forget our own needs in the face of other’s?
or when the tears in our eyes reflect the same things that break your heart?
do you see you when we reach the end of what we can do on our own,
and finally realize that we can do nothing without you?

but mostly i wonder—
do you see you
in me?
