ANOTHER LIFE STORY
10:34 AM 12/12/02

One very hot summers day, 1965? If I'm remembering correctly. It had to be late July around the 26th or so, because the heat was almost unbearable. It was a solar eclipse year, but to us kids just another summers day for fun in the sun. On this particular morning, Mom got up and fixed breakfast, homemade biscuits syrup, eggs and bacon.

After we'd eaten and cleaned up, we could go out to play, but just before we left this day Mom called me over and said "Carol, when you go out to play today don't look directly at the sun, because it's a solar eclipse today and it could blind you." Now; why did she have to go and tell me that, you know what I did don't you? Yep, I went right out there and while I was swinging in that swing, I starried directly at the sun saying to myself, You can't blind me Mr. Sun, I'll stare at you all I want to and I'll still be able to see when I'm done.

So I stared and I squinted and I stared and squinted again, all the time defying Mr. Sun. Well, about five minutes of that was all it took and yep, I went blind in the left eye, all I could see was whiteness. I ran back up stairs to tell Mom the good news, I went out side and did exactly what you told me not to do Mom, and now I can't see, really I can't see. Mom was stunned, so much so that she gave me a big fat slap across the face.

That, most times seem to shock the lies right out of us, if we were lying. But this time it didn't work, I still couldn't see out of that left eye. Instead of Mom snitching me up and heading for the nearest hospital, she snitched me up and headed for the church. Our church's name was "Prayer Tower," it was named rightly so, the Pastor and founder Magnolia Dawson believed in prayer.

We had prayer daily at that little old church, I mean everyday at noon, the mothers were there on their faces before God crying out for any and everything. "Lord save my children, save my husband, cover us with the Blood of the Lamb".......and so on. We made it to the church in record time, it usually took us about fifteen minutes to reach the church, but not this day we were there in about 6 1/2 minutes.

We stormed through the church doors, Mom anxiously going over to one of the old Mothers of the church saying Mother Baker, she can't see, Mother Baker never missed a single beat in the rhythm of her praying she just took me from Mom and over to the other Mothers and I was surrounded and prayed over until I came out seeing again.

They (The Mothers), asked me, can you see? I blinked my eyes and nodded yes I can. There was thunderous praise throughout the church, and it was over they hit their knees once again and resumed their praying. Mom and I left for home and all was well with my eyes and Mom's soul.

Love in Christ
Carol

Isn't it amazing how we love to do what we're told not to do? Thank God for the prayer warriors in our lives! We need them.
