|The view through my daughter's glasses. Pretty blurry!|
My daughter has her glasses now. They're pink and cute and she is, of course, adorable in them. When the optician put them on for the first time, my daughter looked around for five minutes, not saying a word, a grin spreading slowly across her face.
It has been so much fun to watch her discover things for the past few days. Someone finding Christ is much the same. They suddenly see things differently than they ever have before.
There have been many changes in her in the few short days she's had her glasses. She's not running into things, she's much less frustrated with meticulous tasks, and overall she's just a happier little girl.
The biggest thing that struck me though is that she is actually seeing herself for the first time. While we were at the doctor's office, I lifted her up to a mirror. I wish I had been filming it because the look on her face was priceless. I can only begin to imagine how she looked to herself before. Her curly hair is more often than not in a wild cloud around her face, which probably made her even image even fuzzier. Now, with her glasses, she can make out her ringlets and see herself as she really is.
What a concept!
|How are you looking at the world?|
In many ways it has been like watching my daughter get a new life this week. What a blessing that we can get spiritual glasses as well! What is one thing you see differently when you remember to look through the eyes of Christ instead of the eyes of the world?
