my eyes, though weak, seem to become clearer
about what I see about me.
Something about the look of God’s creations
that I did not notice before now
In seeing this creation
a wonderment stops my breath.
Is it the sound of wind singing
that I had not noticed before now?
Is it the vastness of the night skies filled with a beauty
beyond words that I cannot describe?
I find myself noticing beauty in people
a beauty that before
I did not see.
I see beauty in the old, the sick
the visions that I used to turn away from seeing
but no longer do.
I feel the pain and joy of other people
I used to not feel such things.
The laughter of a child
ringing like a heavenly bell,
pealing in a meadow
sounds in my ears.
Is this God’s way of saying
“Look at what you have missed earlier in your life?”
I am not sure
but I do know
now I have become more thankful.
More thankful each day
for the gifts God has given to me.
I seem to be getting closer to heaven each day.
I now know, what I see, hear and Feel
are all but a small part of what will be in God’s world.
I can only hope
that in this twilight of my life
I might become worthy
in the areas that I have been unworthy.
May I be worthy of the love and blessings
He has given me in this life.
Thank you God
for this day.
