The Eyes of Love


“I looked a hundred times and all I saw was dust.  The sun broke through and flecks of gold filled the air.”  Mark Nepo

Have you ever wondered at all of the things we cannot see, until the sun illuminates them?  We are so dependent on the images that we see through our eyes that we miss what is present, right in front of us.

Perhaps there is another aspect of sight that can only be appreciated when we give up our need to see.

To look on a scene of beauty or into a dog’s eyes is to look on God’s love expressed physically.  The challenge (or the opportunity) is to look into another’s eyes and see the same love.
