The Mirror - Again

I've posted this twice before, but used it as part of our Harvest Celebration of Creation and Creativity, so here it is again for the sake of completeness...

Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."       
Genesis 1: 26




Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror of a morning
And wondered
What does anyone see in me?
God looked at himself in a mirror one morning
A mirror which he had made…
A mirror fashioned out of clay
Transformed into flesh and bone…
And in the mirror of man’s eye
God saw himself…
But it was not good.
He was alone
And God was never alone.
He was always “us.”
So God made another
To make the picture complete…
And that morning he saw himself in the mirror of mankind
Male and female
Loved and loving
Created to create
Together.

Selah
