5 words. Big impact.
My eyes have been growing older lately. Not me of course, just my eyes and I've struggled this Thanksgiving break with being able to see the fine print. Lately they've also been stinging and watering a little...maybe allergies. Anyway, I've been feeling kinda, not-so-pretty lately. Pictures of wrinkles and such...I need a haircut. You know the drill. Well, today after working at the Fantasy of Trees for 4 hours, I drove thru McDonalds to grab a bite to eat. Rainy, yucky November Day. When I cruised around to pick up my sack o' calories, the young man handed it out to me and said, "You have beautiful eyes, Ma''am." I was stunned. I murmured a thank you and headed toward home all the while thinking, Do I? Do I have beautiful eyes? I pulled down my review mirror to take a look.
I remember a song entitled, "if You Said My Eyes are Beautiful, It's because they're looking at you," I thought about how important it is to fix our eyes on Jesus. It is He who is beautiful and it is He who should be reflected in our eyes.
