Uncorrected Vision

I was thinking of how the most ordinary of things make such a difference in our lives...and how one of those things remind me so of our love.

I got a new kind of contact lenses this year...they are soft lenses, which I had never worn before, and they are also the kind you can wear all day and all night, only changing them once a month. When you first put them in, you have to make sure that they are not inside out.... and I worried a bit about that until the nurse assured me that I would know if I did that, for they would irritate my eyes, and I would not be able to see right.

I also had another thing to keep in mind while putting in the lenses.... to make sure the right lens went in the right eye, and the left one in the left.... for these are monovision lenses.... specifically made for each eye.... using the strengths of each to make the correction in my vision.... the one eye was stronger for far-away sight, and the other was stronger for close-up...so each had it's own function, but only made the total correction when they worked together.

Before I met you, my life was like my uncorrected vision...when I looked at my world, it was a blur, nothing was distinct, I could not find my way. I became unsure of myself, not daring to step out for fear that I would blunder into something, lose my way, or trip and fall. So I just stayed put in my one little safe place, telling myself that it was enough...but I knew that was wrong, I knew I wanted more.... and finally...I knew that I couldn't do it on my own.

So I turned to the One who could make wrong things come right...who could take my blurry sight and make it clear.... He was what had been missing, He showed me the way.... funny that though I didn't think so, He'd always been near. He looked deep in my heart, and saw what was there, and fashioned the lenses I needed...and taught me to use them, to put them on the right way...to let me see things His way...and then He did the most miraculous thing...for He knew the lenses I needed...would be monovision ones...for my strength was not complete, until I had the other one.

He brought you into my life, like the missing other lens.... the one I needed to be complete...for though I could see close up...I also needed to see far...so together we'd see what He wanted us to see. What joy I felt that day.... when I knew He'd brought me you...the one my heart knew instantly was just for me...and like that far-seeing lens.... and now that we're together.... like the matching pair of lenses, our sight together is clearer than it was alone...you are strong where I am weak...my small strength complement yours...and together we can accomplish what He wants.

We can see the small joys and blessings in each day, yet know the whole picture He has for us...and the most wondrous thing of all is that it only works with both....I need you and you need me...and together we need and know His caring love, for that's what we give each other every day...and if we're looking at Him, and following His path, He makes sure the lenses are right side out...for with Him it's always right...never turned around...perfect, crystal clear sight!
