Clear Sight


Is your eye clear and bright--
Filled with truth, love and light?
When the day's not begun,
Can you see all Christ's done?
This whole world yet remains
Through his word that sustains.
All is sourced from above.
We exist through his love.
If he ever would stop,
Our existence would drop
Into nothing at all.


Is your eye clear and bright
To experience light?
Do you see what is there?
See God's work everywhere?

The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! --Jesus, in Matthew 6:22-23 ESV

I'm not quite sure what the device is, but I saw it in my eye doctor's office.

Time Grows Shorter


Time grows shorter, shorter yet.
People come into our lives
And we see them day by day
And we think there's lots of time,
But there's not.

LORD, you've given us this day
Or, at least, this moment--NOW.
Stir us up to use the time.
May we see that you have planned
All the time that we will need
To do all that you've assigned--
Time for work and time for rest,
Time for worship, time to pray,
But no time at all to waste.
Thank you for this moment, now.

Therefore watch carefully how you walk, not as unwise, but as wise; redeeming the time, because the days are evil. --Ephesians 5:15-16, WEB
