Welcome to Reflections in the Rear View
People ask me what inspired this Blog and its title. It all started with a piece I wrote called “I serve the Lightning Maker” If you’ve read it, you might think you know the whole story, but it goes a bit beyond that.
I love to drive, and if you took driver’s education, which I had to before I could take my driver’s test with the family vehicle (thanks mom and dad), teach you the need for your mirrors.
Your mirrors help you know about your surroundings, to get another perspective, to see where you want to go and where you’ve been or what is coming up behind you. Those mirrors in and around your car are there for you to refer to only to glance at – you can’t stare at them too long or focus on them, or you will steer your car there.
It’s a driving principle as well as a life principle – you steer where you look.
So you just take a moment and look at the reflection and get some information (data) from what you saw there and use it to help you get to where you are going.
Reflect on the reflection; maybe it will give you a course correction or reinforce that you are heading in the right direction.
This Blog is going to be some of my reflections. Perhaps you’ll see something familiar that you can relate to, maybe it will be a brand-new perspective for you.
Either way, I pray that you enjoy these pondering, stories and reflections. May they cause you to laugh, cry, be inspired or just see something completely different.

Broken Glass – An Answer to Prayer
Smash – I saw three pieces of clear jagged glass on my clean kitchen floor. I had just finished asking God what I would do with this last glass as it came out of the dishwasher. Apparently, today was the first day since I had gotten my new cups that they were all clean, and now this one had no home. No sooner had the prayer left my mouth; than the glass left my hand.Keep reading
A Change of Season
Autumn – just thinking the words makes me smile. The air is purer; there is a sense of expectation. Red, Yellow, Orange – the fiery trio of colours warm my heart as I snuggle into my grey wool sweater. I was taking another sip from my mug of hot cocoa.Keep reading
