Inspire Me Thursday



It's been a while since I've particpated in one of the Inspire Me Thursday challenges. I really want to do better with things like that so I stretch my creativity. The challenge for this one is to show something to reflect a paradox which one definition from dictionary.com is "a statement or proposition that seems self-contradictory or absurd but in reality expresses a possible truth." I started thinking about my photographs and this one came to mind. The reason I took it was because of the beautiful sky reflected in the glass. In other words a man made object reflecting something of God's world. We are a reflection of God and just how much we let Him into our lives or don't let him in. It is also hard sometimes to remember just how much our actions or how we treat others is also a reflection of how they will see God.

I like what you did here. What an interesting point - that God is reflected in us and the world around us. Really made me ponder and I thunk the photograph you chose demonstartes your point very well and is a great addition to the "Paradox" theme.

Loving your work here and your beautiful kittens! Made me smile a lot today. Thanks x
