The Mirror Days

I hope you don’t mind a few more thoughts from the Netherland Plaza in Cincinnati. No one there has an excuse for having food between their teeth or a hair out of place. There are mirrors everywhere!

You can check whatever you need to check in a round mirror . . .

The Netherland Plaza even has a Hall of Mirrors. John and Jacqueline Kennedy attended an event there one time.

The Hall of Mirrors has mirrors along its balcony and even a two-story mirror between its stone staircases.

We can check things in mirrors, but they’re only a reflection of what is real. One day the mirror days will be over for God’s children and we will see clearly. God is patient with us while we wait for that day.

God is the perfect example for us. He demonstrates how we can be patient with our children, while they learn what they don’t know yet but what they will know when the time is right.

When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child;
when I became a man, I did away with childish things.
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face;
now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.
But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:11-13
