Journal - A Day of Healing

Saturday morning I woke up and noticed an improvement in my vision right away. It was clearer than it had been on Thursday and Friday, and most of the patterns and sparklies were gone, although not completely.
We didn’t do much on Saturday, just took it easy and hung out here at home. It was windy outside, but not very cold so I went out and walked around the place for a little bit. Nothing strenuous, just walking and exploring.
Late Saturday afternoon I watched a movie. Yeah, watched. I always enjoyed watching movies and it’s something that I’ve really missed. The DVS movies that I’ve been listening to are a blessing and I’m so thankful for them, but it was pretty cool to pop in a DVD and see the pictures. For my first movie experience, I chose Star Trek: Insurrection, my favorite of the Star Trek movies.
Saturday evening I spent some time playing with my mp3 player. I learned how to use it while I was blind: loading movies or books onto it and listening to them, and switching over to the FM radio function. Last night I just explored it, looking at some of the other features it has and playing with settings and such. The print on it is too small for me to handle, but with a magnifying glass I can read it very clearly. That was fun.
And that was about it for Saturday. It was a pretty relaxing day. Throughout the day, I noticed some further improvement in my vision, and felt like I may have gotten back to where I was on Tuesday when the bandage came off. Overall, it was a good healing day.

Luke 11:34-35 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is bad, your body is full of darkness. Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness. ESV

Mark 12:30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ ESV

  1. What a journey, eh? I don't think we ever had this in mind, but it does keep it interesting. :)
    I'm glad God chose me to be the one on this journey with you. I heard Clarence retired. ;)

    I love you!
