This introspecting has been prompted by a number of
small, seemingly insignificant events
strung together on the chain of life.
Events, that when propped up,
and given center stage in my thoughts,
serve as mirrors.
Mirrors that when I look into
show me, in a gentle way,
things I need to work on.
Places where I need to become better,
more kind, more generous, more loving.
Today I will begin again
in trying to live a more Christ-like life.
