The rancher and I took the eye test. I concentrate on the light changes.

My pupils absorb the light inside my eyeball, telling my brain what I see.

The eye searches for bigger, brighter letters.

From what I see becomes my perception of the world.

I am aware my eyes have begun to fail.

Matthew 6: 22-23 (Message) Your eyes are windows into your body.

If you open your eyes wide in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light.

If you live squinty-eyed in greed or distrust, your body is a dank cellar.

If you pull the blinds on your windows, what a dark life you will have.

Do you see only the wrong in this world? Or do you look for the good?

What we focus on will form us, what our eye beholds, we live out.

Ephesians 5: 2a, 5b, 8b-9

Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ.

For a greedy person is an idolater, worshipping the things of this world.

So live as people of light.

For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true.

May we live wide-eyed, seeking the light of Christ.

Until next time Pam
