😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace be with you. Today our Savior is born! Alleluia Alleluia!
Saturday morning I was sitting in the woods on a hunting trip with my husband and stepson. I was sitting on a small camp seat facing south and up hill along a deer path. Brian was on my right, sometimes sitting on the ground and other times standing while facing north toward the creek. Chris was on my left 20’ in the air on a tree stand, also facing south and up hill near the deer path. We were all in a straight line with only about 200 yards between Brian and Chris. After being in the woods about four hours, we decided to call it a day. Chris had seen 5 deer. Brian saw 10-12. But I didn’t see any. At one point Chris said “You didn’t see that doe standing about 50 yards right in front of you in the field?” Nope, not at all. Chris also pointed out that, “You can see so much more when you’re higher up, looking down.” Brian reinforced that thought when he said he only saw the deer when he stood up.
Our line of sight and perspective play a big part in how we see and view life around us. Like this sign, life may sometimes seem upside down and a bit out of order.
Now, allow yourself to refocus your gaze into the water. Do you see it? The sign can be read perfectly. When we allow ourselves the grace to take a moment and refocus our gaze upon Christ, our Living Water, He will allow us to see more clearly the truth this world tries so desperately to disguise. Where will you allow your focus and gaze to take you this Christmas? Bless others and be blessed.
