Why Don’t You Stop and Look Me Over?

January 25, 2020

“Why don’t you stop and look me over?”
Barbara Acklin sang in her cool R&B voice:

“Why don’t you stop
And look me over
Am I the same girl you used to know?”

Am I?
Are you?
Do any of us ever really change?
Our own souls created in the Image of God
Merely marred and erased by time
Or nurtured and flourishing
Part of us is the same, the core
Part of us is constantly growing, learning,
Changing, becoming
Also the core.

Isn’t God marvelous
To have created us this way?
A symbiosis of time and story
The creation of the soul
