Yes, I know I’m getting older. My
eye sight is just not what it used to be.

I’ve worn glasses since 7th grade or so.
You know – nearsighted. But now I
also wear bifocals.


My new glasses!

So, I went to the eye doctor, got my
exam and prescription, and started
comparing prices. I was quoted as
high as $833.00 for a single pair of
glasses.  Well, I shopped around.

[Did you know that you can buy
eye glasses online now? Yep, I
found a place that does it. You
just need your prescription.]

I finally found a place I felt good
about and the price was almost
half of what I had seen, plus I got
2 pair of glasses!  It pays to
shop around.

But, without my eye glasses I
would be a mess. I wouldn’t be
able to see to drive, or read or
see a beautiful rainbow or my
grand kid’s faces.

My vision would be impaired.


When our son, Aaron, was about
three Julie took him and baby Rachel
to Texas to visit her family.

When they flew back into Greensboro,
NC I was waiting at the airport terminal
excited and ready to greet them. In those
days you deplaned on the tarmac!

I remember seeing my family come
down the steps and onto the tarmac
and make their way toward me.

The terminal had huge glass windows
and doors. Aaron saw me and starting
running toward me before I could get
to him – right into a glass door!

He fell down and was crying by the
time I made it outside to comfort him.
Aaron had a clear vision of his dad but
he couldn’t see the obstacle in his
way – the door.


Do you have a vision for your life,
your family, your vocation or calling?
A vision starts with a single thought.
You see what could be, or maybe should
be. You see how things might be better.
Perhaps you are renting a house or
apartment and you have a vision of
one day owning your own home.
You might be working a job and have
a vision, or thought, of running your
own business.

The only thing worse than being
blind is having sight but no vision.
Helen Keller

A vision is the starting point, not the end.
The question is “How do you make a
vision a reality?” You’ve got to do like
Aaron did, start moving toward that vision!
And as you start moving toward your
vision remember there will be obstacles,
even closed doors.

Don’t let that stop you. Keep moving!

Brethren, I count not myself to have
apprehended: but this one thing I do,
forgetting those things which are
behind, and reaching forth unto those
things which are before,

I press toward the mark for the prize
of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13-14 King James Version (KJV)

Where there is no vision, the people perish:
but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Proverbs 29:18 King James Version (KJV)
