Eye'll Be Seeing You

“An eye can make the heart dance for joy.... One of the most wonderful things in nature is a glance of the eye; it transcends speech; it is the bodily symbol of identity.”  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Beside ticking down the New Year, this eye clock is here to tell you something else. Starting Monday, I will be gone again for awhile. I am having eye surgery. Then two weeks later, I will have surgery on my other eye. I have been looking forward to it so much that I have been counting the minutes, just like this eye clock. I will finally be able to see without looking though a fog! Hopefully I won't be gone more than a week or so, but I may have to wear a patch on one eye till I have had surgery on both. I will miss you, but I will see you much more clearly when I come back! I wish for you and your families the best New Year ever!

"If I keep my eyes on God, I won’t trip over my own feet."
Psalm 25

Youth is when you're allowed to stay up late on New Year's Eve.  Middle age is when you're forced to.  ~Bill Vaughn

Joy To The World!

 “The angel said, “Don’t be afraid. I’m here to announce a great and wonderful event that is meant for everybody, worldwide: A Savior has just been born in David’s town, a Savior who is Messiah and Master. This is what you’re to look for: a baby wrapped in a blanket and lying in a manger.”
Luke 2

 “I will sing for joy in God, explode in praise from deep in my soul! He dressed me up in a suit of salvation; he outfitted me in a robe of righteousness…”
Isaiah 61

“But now, by giving himself completely at the Cross, actually dying for you, Christ brought you over to God’s side and put your lives together, whole and holy in his presence. You don’t walk away from a gift like that!”
Colossians 1

The birth of Jesus is the sunrise in the Bible. — Henry van Dyke
 Peace and joy to all my wonderful blog friends. I will see you after a short Christmas break.


 On the outskirts of town, we happened to pass this building. It used to be a gas station. But what a difference now! What was going on? One...
