Now I have this terrible habit of not pronouncing the "g" when saying
words ending in "ing".
So when I pronounce the words "looking glass" it comes out sounding
more like "lookin glass".
Well I let the thought pass for the time being and continued shaving.
After I finished shaving I headed into the kitchen and poured myself
a cup of coffee.

To look inside ourselves and think about what positive things we are
doing to strengthen our relationship with the Lord. . . .
And what negatives we are adding that could damage our relationship
with the Lord.
Well the coffee is done, and I think tomorrow I'll spend an extra minute
or two in front of the mirror to use it as a "lookin glass".
Just a thought over coffee!
