Upon reflection, I thought it would be good to see what others think of reflecting and found a few quotes. Happy Saturday.

Learning without reflection is a waste. Reflection without learning is dangerous. Confucius
The Mirriam-Webster dictionary has many definitions of the word
reflection, one being the obvious of seeing one’s image in a mirror or water.
Another meaning for the word is consideration of some subject matter, idea, or purpose.
And then there is this:
reflecting is about letting your heart and soul speak. It requires letting go of the rational mind, going into your interior life, and listening. (Internet)
In Paul’s 2nd letter to Timothy we read:
Reflect on what I am saying, for the Lord will give you insight into all this. 2 Timothy 2:7 (NIV)
reflect on the image below, a feeling of both grandeur and peace floods my soul, both of which give me insight into the wonder of God, Himself. Happy Sunday.
Sometimes a Saturday can be a good day for just reflecting. If you’re out on the water, on a hiking trail, strolling a sandy beach, or just lazing in a hammock, let thoughts wander until suddenly there is the perfect life scene to reflect upon and then enjoy the journey. Happy Saturday
