We’ve had some crazy torrential weather here on the east coast of Australia this past week! With major flooding in many parts of our east coast its rather wet & soggy here.
However, today we have sunshine so we are enjoying our time at the waterfront with a take away Cuppa & Gf Banana Bread. We are sitting looking out across the bay with its azure waters to the Blue Mountains beyond.
With so much rain & water laying everywhere, little water loving animals have come out to play. We can hear the chorus of our Australian native frogs calling out to each other in harmonious croaking with the native Wood Ducks quacking in the background!
Checking all is well
During the downpour, we had some water building up in our backyard, hubby went out to check on things as men like do. When he went to re enter our home he called out to come see a little visitor sitting on our doorstep, an Eastern Dwarf Tree Frog (about 2.5cm or 1″in total size)!
But to me it looked like a wet leaf until I put my prescription glasses on! Lol! I wrote this Haiku for us,
Tiny frog where have you come from & where are you going?
Sitting so stoically at my door
Enjoying the rain & time of solace in my garden.
Tiny frog thank you for your visit today!
I’ve had some problems with my eyes lately…
The verdict, I need surgery in my left eye now, the diagnosis I had a few years ago was that I had cataracts in both eyes.
Which meant the lens of my eyes had become cloudy which restricts & scatters the amount of light through the lens. Causing the images not to be properly focused onto the retina at the back of the eye.
Which results in increasingly poor & blurry vision. Thus, I need to have the lens in each eye replaced with a new artificial lens!
I had my right eye done at that time but with all the delays with my Fibromyalgia flares & the CoVid restrictions. I hadn’t been able to get my left lens replaced until this coming week.
But that blurry little frog on our door step gave me much food for thought for our reflection today…
Looking through different lenses
How often do we have clouded perspectives within our relationships, the circumstances in our life or even with ourselves (that insistent Inner Narrative).
Which restricts & fractures His true Light. Often leading to a skewed & distorted attitude toward many things including God’s will for our lives!
I find the following occurrence fascinating;
Because my left eye is now affected by an advanced cataract my entire vision is completely distorted!
Even though my right eye has its new lens, my left eye with the cataract so influences my overall eyesight that it gives a blurry unfocused view to my entire vision!
Have you noticed how our perceptions within certain circumstances in our lives can be really distorted & blurry? Even though we may already have many parts renewed by our heavenly Father.
Especially when those particular situations are being impacted by past hurts, which scatter His light from our focus.
Corrective Surgery needed!
Just as my left eye will have its corrective surgical procedure this coming week & go through a healing process…for clear renewed eye sight.
Our past hurts may need corrective surgery & healing by the great Physician for His renewed emotional & spiritual insight.
For Jesus said,
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me…to heal those who are crushed & broken in spirit.”
Luke 5: 18
How’s your attitude about certain things in your life at the moment my friend? Do you need an attitude check up?
Remember the great Physician is always available to mend our brokenness!
Until next time,
