Magnifying Glass

Since turning the BIG 40 this past summer, I've taken to using the magnifying side of my make up mirror.

Which is slightly ironic, since I'm blind as a bat without my glasses and could've been using since I first discovered green frosted eye shadow in 1985.

But, this past week while flipping my mirror over-because who doesn't need to see crows feet up close and personal- I couldn't get these verses out my head:

Psalm 34:1-3

I will bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the Lord;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
And let us exalt His name together.

Magnify - to cause to be held in greater esteem or respect (taken from Merriam-Websters)

It got me to thinking. Am I causing the name of the Lord to be held in greater esteem or am I causing others (my children included) to want to run the other way from the Lord?
