Girls Write Out
Monday, January 24, 2011

It was bright and sunny the other day while I was driving my youngest to school. I flipped down my visor and caught my reflection.

I winced. Let's just say the bright sun made my makeup application flaws extremely apparent. I rubbed away the foundation lines and wished I could do something about the other flaws like the lines under my eyes and the creases on my forehead. But hey, those weren't going away without a lot of money and sharp utensils, so I adjusted my visor so I couldn't see them. Out of sight, out of mind. I looked just fine in my bathroom mirror. But here in the blinding sun . . . Well. Yikes.

I started thinking about the other Son whose light reveals our inner imperfections. That doesn't feel much better than the visor moment did. Often it feels worse, but we can't fix the problem if we don't see it. And unlike the signs of aging, there's nothing He can't help us fix.

So when the light shines bright, don't shy away. Look closer and see what needs fixing. Because sometimes we need prettied up on the inside too.
