When the LORD made Adam and Eve,
He gifted them with five senses –
Hearing, smelling, tasting,
touching and seeing.
They are indeed wondrous gifts to have
the use of on a daily basis.
King David gives praise to God in
Psalm 139:14a “I will praise You, for I am
fearfully and wonderfully made.” (NKJV)
But of all the senses, I place the highest
value on the gift of sight the most.
For I cannot imagine a day without
looking up at the heavens to see what type of
weather the new day is going to bring forth.
To see the sun, the clouds or the lack thereof.
I can hear the rain as it hits the roof of the Jeep as I’m driving along on the highway. But I need my eyes
to see the raindrops coursing down the windows and to see the brilliant colors of the rainbow arching across the sky
After a brief but intense sudden downpour.
I love to hear the sound of children laughing,
Nevertheless, it is so much better to see the faces of Jessica, Tricia and Elyssa as they laugh and run around together.
Of all the seasons, I find winter to be the hardest season to get through because it is such a barren season
compared to Spring, Summer and Fall.
I start counting the days after Groundhog Day
has passed by hoping for an early SpringThaw,
just to see the first purple Crocus, the first burst of
sunshine from the drooping Forsythia branches to see the first flash of deep red from the homeward arriving Robins.
Yes, there are always sounds to hear
and aromas to smell as well as many and various numerous things to taste and touch that would strain everyone’s patience to the limit if I were to list and enumerate everything from the beginning of God’s creation
and on and on all the way up to the present day.
But to me the gift of sight enhances all the other senses.
Sight brings in the colors of the flowers we smell
on the afternoon breeze.
Sight shows us what the delicious smells actually are that we have been smelling as we walked up the really long sidewalk to get into the kitchen
Sight gets us excited about tasting what we were just smelling as were walking up that really long sidewalk.
Moreover, sight reveals to us what that
something actually is that we could
only touch in a bag or box.
Psalm 66:5 “Come and see the works of God;
He is awesome in His doings towards the sons of men.” (NKJV)
