A very interesting perspective. It's funny how God can enlarge our vision by taking it. We never appreciate something until its gone, but " man's reach should exceed his grasp, else what's a heaven for?" As we lose the abilities we once had, as they fade away, we yearn for that day when they will be returned to us, permanently. Thanks for the lovely reminder.

Very effective--your last several paragraphs putting the first half of your essay into eternal perspective.

I really liked this. Perhaps many more people will learn from this wonam's example. I liked your style of writing. The end really pulled it all together.
BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN! WHEN THE LORD TAKES AWAY SOMETHING PRECIOUS TO US, HE ALWAYS GIVES US SOMETHING EQUALLY PRECIOUS IN RETURN.

I was drawn from the beginning with the beautiful pictures you painted with you words and enjoyed how you brought it all together at the end. I hope that you will find a way to share this with others who have lost their vision.

Congratulations Joanne! This piece was wonderful. I am not sure if you were writing this well before you lost your ability to see physically, but I do believe, also that God's strength is made perfect in our weakness. You have an anointing to write. Be encouraged! God Bless

It's crystal clear why you won on this one, it is just out and out precious.
This is a treasure! I loved the spiritual applications and the wonderful optimism expressed. I could only hope that my attitude would be that Spirit-controlled if I found myself in such a circumstance.
Joanne, This was just wonderfully done! The imagery and plotting are perfect. I'm so glad I got to read it. Verna
What a wonderful story. It makes me ashamed that my spiritual vision is not what it ought to be. Very good pov here. Thanks for sharing.
