Lent 3: See

The word for day 3 was "see" so I just went for the straightforward image of my glasses which have been helping me to see for about 27 years now. Last summer, I (foolishly) wore my glasses into a wave pool at an amusement park in Iowa, and promptly lost them when the first large wave hit me. I spent the rest of the day (and part of the next) in full blur mode. It's amazing how something as simple as a piece of plastic shaped in just the right way to refract light, can make the difference between seeing the world and being effectively blind.

There are lots of ways to turn that metaphor into a sermon, but I'll spare you that, at least for this time...
