My blog title, "The Art of Reflection," originally comes from this thoughtful quote by Saumel Taylor Coleridge:
Of course, this is true for women as well!There is one art of which every man should be a master--the art of reflection.--If you are not a thinking man, to what purpose are you a man at all?
What does it mean to reflect? It simply means to think. Wrestle. Process. Wonder. Feel deeply. Be inspired. Learn. Grow.
Being a thoughtful, reflective person is an essential part of growing personally, spiritually, emotionally, relationally... you name it. One of my hopes is to live as authentically and purposefully as possible. I think that's only doable when I am able to pause and reflect on what happens, what my heart says, what God whispers.
"The Art of Reflection" is also a reminder that as Christians we are created Imago Dei, in the image of God. I am to reflect Christ to those around me. I blog to share what I am learning, thinking, and praying about... I hope as a visible 'image' of how God is at work in my life. I invite you to share in the conversation (I always enjoy reading your comments), and join with me on the journey!
Please share your thoughts as well. In the last week, what have you found yourself reflecting on most often?
