“For now we see through a glass, darkly;
but then face to face:
now I know in part;
but then shall I know
even as also I am known.”
(1 Corinthians 13:12, KJV)
Have you tried progressive lenses yet? How about the new trifocal eyeglasses?
Recently, I splurged for these high-tech vision-correcting eyeglasses. Ideally, trifocal eyeglasses are supposed to offer long-distance vision correction, fairly close vision correction (as for computer usage) and up-close vision correction (for reading, writing, sewing and other detail work).
Mostly, my fancy trifocal eyeglasses just give me motion sickness . . . even when I am sitting still.
Know the feeling?
Maybe this circumstance contains a spiritual life lesson? Doesn’t every circumstance, if we will but look?
What a Sight –
A Limericked Glance at Lenses Askance
New spectacles set me a-reel.
The sharpest of scenes may congeal.
Still, I feign a smile,
Though blind for a while,
Concealing the discord I feel.
For vision’s much more than I see,
And insights are often the key.
Lord, call me apart
To see through Your heart.
Could be it’s not all about me.
