Cast and Catch

Well, I am finally writing and introducing my new blog, "Cast and Catch." The purpose of creating this blog is simply to write about various parts of life, such as, observations, events, likes, dislikes, and rants.

To this end, the underlying theme of this whole blog is based upon the word reflect. It took me days to figure out a simple yet general title for this blog. Thanks to my friend, she suggested looking at my favorite Bible verses for title-inspiration. My most favorite verse is, "I have loved you with an everlasting love" (Jeremiah 31:3). Unfortunately, I couldn't figure out a title from that verse-- so that led to my other favorite, "As a face is reflected in water, so the heart reflects the person" (Prov. 27:19).

From the verse in Proverbs, I looked up the word reflect in the Thesaurus. The word reflect is an action word or verb and means to either give back or think about. Some of the synonyms for the word are: cast, catch, return, copy, echo, reply, resonate, reverberate, shine, contemplate, meditate, wonder, ponder, and think etc... What fascinates me about all of these words is that reflection is built upon give and take, a polar relationship. In life, so many things make an impression on us whether we notice it or not. Some moments we "cast" out our reflections; saying how we feel. Other moments we "catch" the reflections of others and internalize them.

I hope you enjoy following me on this journey...
