A middle aged woman stood in front of her mirror one evening before bed. She was saddened by her reflection and thought back to her younger days. Suddenly, in the mirror she could see her Lord standing behind her, yet when she turned around she could not see him. They began to talk. Looking at her reflection she sighed and said,
"I'm getting wrinkles, Lord."
He replied, "You are growing in wisdom."
"I'm so tired."
"In me you will find rest."
"I'm not as pretty as I once was."
"To me, you are my perfect work of art. You are special and one of a kind."
"I've gained weight."
"I've always provided."
"I lost my job today."
"I won't stop providing."
"People confuse me and I've lost a lot of friendships over the years."
"I'll never leave you. My commitment is unending."
"I'm not sure my children even love me."
"I'm not sure my children love me either. I love you."
"I'm scared sometimes when I'm alone."
"You are never alone. I'm here."
"You are good, Lord."
"Thanks, for saying so."
With that the woman smiled at her reflection took a deep breath and went to bed.
