This Cormorant was fishing in the gulf waters off Tarpon Springs. Do you think he knows there's a piece of grass a'hanging out of his mouth? His reflection is all wavy and if he tried to look and check his mouth, the grass would go under the water. Did the other birds "honk" at him and laugh? Should I've told him?
This Ibis stands tall in the water and would be able to see his reflection. But it doesn't show his true colors or exactly how smooth and classy he is. But then he's got water dripping off his beak....
Here the cormorants and seagull look almost like mirror images of themselves. But in the water, they can't tell if their wet feathers make their butts look big.
"Finally brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things." Philippians 4:8
We are not what we think we are, but we are what we think. (That's not my quote, but can't remember where I heard it.)
Lord, help my thoughts be about what You mean to my life, so I reflect You. Show me what I really reflect to others. (gulp)
