A misty morning

Walking along the river bank I came upon a most
Intriguing creature. One that I am sure I’d seen before, but failed to see. It was apparent to me that I had missed an opportunity to gaze upon a creature of such beauty.

The time to see is now when one is capable of seeing. No man is promised tomorrow. We would
Be amiss to neglect such a gift of God, as the gift of sight. Saying that, we fail to really see
what God has put in front of us.

An ocean floor, a starry night, and a snowcapped mountain, all pronouncing in its own way the
Majestic work of God. We’ve often heard the adage “ Seeing is believing” and that is true, unless you were without sight.

Whether it is a misty morning or a stormy night all things are equal, when it comes to our perception
of the world around us. Let us see with our eyes and know
For a certainty that the world as we know it will one day be gone.

God not only gave us the gift of sight to behold his creation. He also wants us to take a close
Look at those in need. The child that is hungry, the elderly man that is without a home, a widow who craves companionship.

They truly need people to see with their eyes, but with eyes of compassion. That is
God’s number one objective to truly seeing his world as it should be seen.

You make some outstanding points and give a gentle reminder.

I'd like to know what the intriguing creature was. You have a good message, but I think it was a little disjointed. I like the progression from all seeing creation to seeing needy people.

I liked the message of this piece, but feel the first paragraph could be eliminated. It didn't seem to tie into the following ones.
Not sure why the spacing is goofed up, but next time preview what your entry will look like before you submit it. That will prevent the same mistake.

The ideas you present here are very good!

I would have expanded that first paragraph... Make it a guessing game almost. Describe what you saw that you hadn't really "seen" before, and let the reader guess what it is, before revealing it.

Good job. There are some good reminders here. Keep writing!

Your message is a great reminder, we get so caught up in things that we forget to enjoy what God gives us. Thank you!
