We differ, blind and seeing, one from another, not in our senses, but in the use we make of them, in the imagination and courage with which we seek wisdom beyond all senses.
Use your eyes as if tomorrow you would be stricken blind….
Hear the music of voices, the song of the birds, the mighty strains of an orchestra, as if you would be stricken deaf tomorrow.
Touch each object as if tomorrow your tactile sense would fail.
Smell the perfume of the flowers, taste with relish each morsel as if tomorrow you could never smell and taste again.
Make the most of every sense; glory in all the facets of pleasure and beauty which the world reveals to you.
The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but has no vision.
Psalms 139:1-3, 14-18
O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
The mighty Creator of everything took time and thought to make us with every sense that we might enjoy all of creation. Thank you, Father.
And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good…
