Seeing Blind

I see, and some can’t.  For me, it really is that simple.  I’m simply thankful.

A chapter in one of my favorite books is called “The Myth of Complexity”.  That title has a lot of meaning for me now. Here is the scripture memory verse for that chapter:

3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

(2 Corinthians 11:3)

That scripture has a lot of meaning for me now, too.

Some people who are blind make a pretty good go of it. I’ll bet there are other examples. If they can do it, we can too, don’t you think?

We can do this life thing with a smile.  At least, I’m gonna try.  Won’t you join me?

holy experience

    I work at the Texas state agency that helps the blind, deaf, people with head injuries, etc. There are times where I see someone struggling with a task that is so easy for us because we have all of our functions. It’s crushing. Sadly, I don’t think I have the strength to accept such a loss if it happened to me.

    My mother was almost deaf. It happened around the age of 20. She got a virus that killed most of her hearing. My mother was not a complainer but she had plenty to complain about. The hearing loss was never easy for her. She never wanted us to learn sign language because she didn’t want to be treated differently. She did her best to get by reading lips and wearing hearing aids. I don’t think it was difficult for any of us in the family because we were used to it, but I’d see the challenges she had to deal with every day and it was hard.

    I have always been known as a loud person and I am quite certain this is the reason why.

    We are quite lucky to have what we have, Cousin Stehanie. Thank you for reminding me.
