mountainThere were some very cool posts with this word.  Some folks posted sun glasses, some were silly posts with big, costume glasses. One was a pic of a little girl who had recent eye surgery and was able to see well for the first time.  Wonderfully creative pics from our church family!

Several years ago I suffered from something called recurrent corneal erosion.  It is basically when your eye tissue is so unhealthy that the corners of your corneas peel upwards every time you blink – especially when your eyes are dry or when you are in REM sleep at night.  It was extremely painful and felt as though I had severe corneal abrasions on my eyes 24/7.  At its worst, I had thick, ointment in my eyes all day just so I could blink without pain and people had to drive me places and type for me because I couldn’t see.

Thankfully, after surgery, I’m all good now (and the surgery corrected my vision at the same time!).  Since that time I have made it a priority to never take my senses for granted. Sight is a very important thing and I couldn’t imagine not being able to see my family or God’s beautiful creation all around me.  The angels told the shepherds to go and see the new baby king.  Those eyes saw the most precious gift right there in a manger.  What a sight to see!

What do you see this Advent?
