Flashback Friday - In the Mirror

This is a poem I wrote in the first year of knowing Jesus as my Lord. I post it today as part of Flashback Friday currently hosted by Erin at Together for Good while Jo takes a break and also in response to Lisa-Jo The Gypsy Mama as she asked what we see when we look in the mirror.

I'm not sure
what to look for
in the mirror anymore

Once a mosaic
of the stories
only years can build
written in my eyes

Now wiped clean
by tears
that flow
with joy and wonder
leaving a glow

A mark of peace
A seal of love

Let my face serve
as a road-map
that leads
to the doorway
of my Lord
so those who see me
might find Him

Come join in at Together for Good and add your own flashback.

Check out The Gypsy Mama too, she always brings light and encouragement.
