Divine Mirror-

Oh, how I see the world the way I want to see it! Yet I see the world through the lens of a pandemic-exhausted, physically tired person! The lens I look through has a tint of blue, and the distortion is growing by the day.

I’m tired, God. I’m tired of seeing the world through my lens. Remove my blue-tinted, fingerprint-laden lens, and create a clear picture in my mind.

May the mirror I look into each day reflect the beautiful and broken realities of me. May I embrace that image and continue to grow, and continue to celebrate the person I’ve transform into.

Amen.
