Seeing Is Believing

I have really bad eyes. I have to take someone with me to pick out frames, because I can't see how I look in my choices. If I take my glasses off, I have to be sure where I put them, because I can't find them on my own. I WOULD be able to find these glasses anywhere, though! It's good to know there are some things that don't have to be seen to be believed. Here are some shots of things at the optician's offices.


"Then he focused his attention on Thomas. "Take your finger and examine my hands. Take your hand and stick it in my side. Don't be unbelieving. Believe."
Thomas said, "My Master! My God!"
Jesus said, "So, you believe because you've seen with your own eyes. Even better blessings are in store for those who believe without seeing."
John 20

You make me laugh, Ginny - I love the picture of the glasses. You also make me think - you tied that Scripture to perfectly into this post! Thanks for sharing your wonderful gift of relating everyday things that so many people miss to God's precious Word! Love it!

Now that pair of glasses would be difficult to misplace! Those are some fun shots from the optician's office. I love that little teddy bear.

Oh....trust me, I have a habit of just slipping my glasses from my eyes to the top of my head, and a lot of times I'm looking all over for them around the house, and they're on top of my head all the time.

LOVE THIS SCULPTURE


Regarding the painting on my blog today, no I don't know anything on 'who the couple is'...but the artist [you can do research I'm sure], as I posted in the paragraph about it....it's called -quoting what I wrote: "The painting is titled THIS IS MY LOVE and the artist is Leslie Emery. Painted in 1950 [I was one year old]."

I adore that sculpture!! I was an optician for a few years and I love all things glasses. I have collected a few odd looking one in my time. I too am like you, cant see a thing without them.

Boy does this post take me back.

Those glasses made me think of our carved ear...
I know what you mean Ginny. I have very bad eyesight as well. I wear contact lenses but at night wear my glasses. I used to acually put on my glasses if I'd get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, lol. Hope you have a great weekend!! Say hello to Phil for us!

Arti said...

You have a keen eye Ginny, how else would you bring us all these fabulous captures??
I loved those huge spectacles!!
Have a wonderful weekend Ginny:)

Joanne said...

That sculpture is cool, and is that a replica of one of Norman Rockwell's paintings done in ceramic? It looks familiar. I love your blog Ginny you always have the coolest subjects!
Blessings, Joanne

Love those giant frames. Once I was lost, now I see. mmmmm, so thankful He opened our eyes to see our need for Him.

I am loving that header shot, those glasses are way cool! and the oval in the door is beautiful. I can't see my glasses either, they are rimless and when i lay then down they disapear. i dont' take mine off except at night and i have box i put them in on the bedside table and in the bathroom a container they go in. i can't see what i look like either and hubby just says they all look fine. i am thinking of taking someone with me to snap photos of me in the ones i like and then i can put on my glasses and look at them. i bought a pair about 5 years ago and when i got them home drove right back and said i hate the way these glasses look, and they gave me another pair.

I was at the eye doctor this week as well - I went on Monday when the twins were in preschool. There's no way I could make it through an eye exam with the two of them there running all over! I'm good for another year now!

Cute display! Making a new pair of glasses is quite expensive here in my place so I really take good care of my pair of glasses.. otherwise will burn a hole in the pocket.. lol..

Mary said...

The picture of the glasses started my day with a smile.I don't know where you find these things, Ginny, but I'm glad you do. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Stephanie V said...

I need those big glasses. My daughter is an optometrist and I know she'd love them.

My glasses are the first thing I put on in the morning :)

Remington said...

This is so cool! Beth only needs reading glasses and she seems to collect them. She has over 20 pair! She will LOVE the pic of the big glasses!

From the Kitchen said...

I've seen more of the area through your camera lens than I've seen in person! Love those glasses!

Best,
Bonnie

Lady Jane said...

This should go with Bobbi's ear, lol... I can never find my glasses either if I lay them down. Hugs. LJ

DawnTreader said...

Same thing here, but I have several pairs of glasses spread all over the flat so I usually manage to find one pair good enough to keep looking for the "main" ones ;) (I usually wear progressive glasses but sometimes for reading or TV I need different ones)

George said...

I really like those glasses in your first two pictures. I wouldn't have to search too long to find them.

From the Kitchen said...

Oh Ginny--double "ick" on that book storage!! Once our new building is complete, the books will be taken from the old shelves and put on the new shelves in the new building. That is done first. Alas, the library will be closed for 3 or 4 weeks while the move in is done. Fortunately, there is a branch library.

Best,
Bonnie

Those are some mighty big glasses. i sure wouldn't want them on my nose.:)

Glenda said...

Love your unique posts, Ginny - and the Scriptures that you always share! We do "walk by faith not by sight"!

Ann said...

that's one big pair of glasses. I only wear glasses for distance and I can't stand to have them on my face. I only wear them when I'm driving. Recently I had to start using readers though for small close up things.

Eva Ason said...

Hi Ginny ^_^
The shot of the mega glasses is so cool. Nice pictures ^_^. I use to wear glasses for 22 years every day, but did a laser eye surgery 2 years ago, what a freedom. I always dreaded go looking for new glasses.
Have a great weekend!
Hugs

SweetMarie said...

Those are really BIG glasses! You wouldn't miss that office. I like all your pics. The oval glass is really pretty! Have a nice weekend Ginny!

Becky Jane said...

I think we could make a fortune if we invented a beeper for lost glasses!

Fred Alton said...

We just studied that lesson in our Sunday School class a few weeks about Thomas, normally referred to as "Doubting Thomas". Did you notice? Jesus didn't scold him - He just said, in essence, "Here I am, Thomas. See for yourself!" Immediately, Thomas said, "My Lord! And My God!!!"

That huge eyeglass frame is an attention grabber. Really beautiful!

Testing

LC said...

This was great! I have to take my hubby when it is time for me to choose new frames. If I get close enough to see them, my nose is against the mirror and I can't see what they look loke on my face. If I move farther back I can see nether the frames or my face!

Ann said...

The other day, I asked a friend in the meeting to write something, and I said please write BIG. Another friend says You need new glasses.

Ryan said...

Those big glasses are so funny! I don't think those would fit very well!

Chatty Crone said...

Haha - love those BIG glasses. sandie

Rose said...

Wonder what Anne Marie would say if she came to your house and found those giant glasses!
