I can see the sky

A naturally born blind man was finally able to see through an operation. However he had to wait for seventy years before he can finally see. As he lives the hospital with his grand daughter, he saw the sky for the first time.

Immediately he thought that it is the most beautiful sight he had ever saw. It is a complete horizon of serenity. No matter where he looks up he can only see its excellence. Its beauty is incomparable. The clouds that float on its vast territory give an expression of life. For him, the sky is a reflection of a loving face watching over the earth. He felt very happy that he has just had to praise God right on the spot.

“Are you okay, gramps?” His granddaughter asks him sincerely. He looks at her and smiled. “Never been better.” She smiled at him for she understood his joy.

“You must be very glad, now that you can see.” She gave him a handkerchief. He looks at her and said no. “ My dear I’m not happy because I can see. Confused, she can’t help herself but to ask him what he means. He took her hanky and wipes his tears. He then looks at her and said:

“What good does it do for me to see, if God had not made a the sky for me to behold?”

He simply smiled back and looks at the sky once again. She could only nod her head as a response. Then she understood that happiness is more than getting what she need and wants.

Thank you! Your article made me reflect on how I take the sky for granted every day and how far I drift from the love of God because I blind myself through sin. Praise God!
