I started crying when I saw my child's picture here:
Life is hard.
As soon as I sighed that inwardly, fragments of these words popped into my head:
"We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed."
I looked it up on Biblegateway. It was II Corinthians 4:8-9.
I had forgotten that the chapter closed with these words:
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal."
The title of Katherine’s post is “Perspective.”
One of its definitions is “the proper or accurate point of view or the ability to see it.”
Although Katherine’s physical eyes have been damaged, the eyes of her heart are 20/20.
I am so proud of my brave little girl.
Please keep praying that this surgery will be effective.
It was interesting to go back and read this one, written almost two years ago.
