I wish I were the moon…

You know, if it weren’t for all my schoolin’, no one would ever be able to convince me that the moon does not generate its own light.  These past few nights, the moon has shone so brightly that it has masked the stars nearby, and cast a soft light , accentuating the dusting of snow which we have on the ground right now.  When I gaze at it, it appears as though it is a spotlight in the night sky.  But, we know that the moon has no light of its own.  It merely reflects the light of the sun.

So, it makes me think….what do I reflect?  I think that we all reflect something.  We can’t not.  All of our relationships, our culture, our environments, all of these contribute to who we are, what we believe and how we think.  Who I am is communicated to the world in the way that I live, the choices I make and the things I say. So, I ask myself again…..what do I reflect?

As the moon reflects the sun, my prayer today is that I too reflect the SON.

  1. Love the question, what do I reflect! It makes me really take stock of my words and actions as seen by others. I pray I reflect my Lord and Savior each day.

  2. Thought-provoking post, Andie. I’ll think about it every time I look up to the moon.

    Sorry, Andie. You commented on my blog a few days ago and I must have accidentally erased it. If you would be so kind, could you comment again? Totally understood if you do not.

  3. Very interesting post… Different cultures, different people, different religions all see the moon differently also which I suppose is how we can be reflecting off our own light yet people can interpret it very differently.
