For the first time in my adult life, I am typing without the aid of corrective lenses. I've had glasses or contacts since the 5th grade (that would be 24 years!), and without them I could only see very poorly. Street signs - even the biggest ones - were big fuzzy squares of light without words. Without glasses, I could relate somewhat with the blind man in the New Testament who said that people looked like trees walking around (see Mark 8:24).
I was delighted that the doctor prayed with me before surgery. I can't imagine being an eye doctor and not believing in an intelligent creator God. The eye is an incredibly complex and amazing organ! May I use my newly restored sight for His glory.
"Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things from your law." Psalm 119:18
