"AND THE BLIND SHALL SEE AGAIN>>>"
Another page in the "Book of Steve"
A girl--now age eight--was born sightless. I know her well. (I shall call her "G".) G knows that she is not the same, that others perceive things in a different manner than she. Hearing is perfect. She talks of course, has many cousins, Aunts, Uncles, BIG family. None live close by.
One brother, age 5, has specially befriended G, stays with her everywhere, plays games, walks in the woods--everywhere--holding her hand. When they come to a babbling cool brook, they splash one another with obvious glee, even JOY! This closeness is necessary for them both at this time.
Other numerous children in this family are too far removed by age to relate well with younger siblings--that 'teen' stuff, ya know?
G knows braille symbols, is extremely intelligent, but lives in a state which allows too many of its handicapped residents to fall between large cracks. The family lives far away.
G's younger brother was sent (I believe this!) by God to G, or she might be dreadfully alone in her uniqueness. Things are what they are. My prayer: As the lives of these two emerge, each turning point might safely harbor positive change.
This I know. G will 'see' many things which most of us sighted Peeps do not. The sightless are NOT unseeing.
Imagine becoming a resident of this beautiful place—earth/universe--never to view in 3-D color. My father was sightless also from birth. His lifelong theory: "God takes special care of Blind People and Drunks!" (He was not a 'drunk'!)
Please say a prayer for G, that God also might care
for her in a special way. G might be the shining light
for someone—or many--if that is not already happening.
Thank you, Peeps.
