Through The Looking Glass
Before Dr. Giddy appears before a group he always spends time in front of an old-fashioned looking-glass. It’s nothing fancy, or ornate. But, if he is to get his character just right a mirror is a necessity, not an optional accessory. As he sits before it and looks at what it holds he is changed – transformed even.
Dr. Giddy does not always like what he sees when he first sits before the looking-glass. There may be a frown where a smile should be. There may be dull, tired eyes where light and sparkles should be. Darkness and division may cover his head when he should be crowned with vibrant colors. As he peers into the looking-glass he becomes a new creature.
It has been said the Bible is: the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword, and the Christian’s charter… and now, the clown’s Looking Glass.
Before he faces the world each day he needs to spend time in front of the old-fashioned Looking Glass. Nothing fancy – the cover is faded, curled at the corners, and the binding is coming loose. But, if he is to get his character right the Looking Glass is a necessity, not an optional accessory. As he sits before it and looks at what it holds he is changed – transformed even. Before long, frowns are replaced with smiles, a gleam enters his eyes, his thoughts are crowned and protected with salvation. As he peers through the Looking Glass he becomes a new creature!
On this page Dr. Giddy will post recent readings from his Looking Glass. They will be here solely for your reference, he won’t be commenting on them – because it isn’t Dr. Giddy’s face you need to see when you peer –
