At 7:30 a.m. I was writing about not being able to see the beauty that God creates within each one of us.
At 8:30 a.m. I was watching the removal of two corneas for a future transplant.
It was fascinating and my curiosity was in overdrive.
As the Specialist began the removal I was also being educated about everything from corneal transplantation, to cells, to membranes, to length of time needed for a successful transplant.
Most fascinating and simply jaw dropping is that you can remove a cornea from someone who has recently passed away and can transplant that cornea into someone who has been blind from birth, living in total darkness, and if the transplant is successful, in time they can have 20 / 20 vision.
One life ends and the sight of another begins.
What would it be like to see for the first time?
To have no prior visual reference of objects, color, spaces or shapes.
To put a face with a familiar voice.
To see that which you have only previously felt.
Christ himself said that he had come to give sight to the blind.
And he did, both physically and spiritually.
Has your sight dimmed to the miracles of God all around you?
Have you been blind to the needs of others?
I want to see people as God sees them.
As people with such potential through the power of an unlimited God, as He allows them to see the extraordinary vision he has for their life.
“The Lord gives sight to the blind.” Psalm 146:8
