The Hope of Lent
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
Alexander Graham Bell
March 28th - Not everyone who has the gift of sight can truly see
What we see depends mainly on what we look for.
Playing games with a blindfold helps us appreciate the gift of sight. Sight is a double blessing in a time when media manipulates visual contents, its patterns, and its timing. A quickly edited, fast moving commercial on television proves the point; your eyes quickly read the message.
Throw away catalogs and advertisements that inevitably promise you more fulfillment and joy in life. Those things are not sold in stores. Never have been, never will be.
Sometimes a person can look, but not see. Sometimes it is difficult to see the sun over the clouds. But the sun is always there.
We don’t always see things in the same way. We don’t always agree. Many things look differently to different people.
Lent is a time to open our eyes and our hearts. It’s a time to see things as they are and not to blind ourselves to the truth. To see each person as he or she is, a life worthy of respect, reverence and, and love. To open our eyes to the truth that we are desperately dependent upon God for our very existence.
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
Henry David Thoreau
