Monday Eye Report

Vision:   The closer I get, the smaller the increments of change are.   As my vision improves, my eye tears a lot and I can’t watch TV without a lot of tearing and roaring in my ear as tears are springing forth.  Baby steps.

Many of you ask when they expect full vision:  they said my vision will peak and stabilize at five months.

Vision should be close at two weeks.  That puts me at this Thursday. 

BUT, they count “clear as being still hazy at times with varying degrees of vision depending on the moisture of your eyes and fatigue and lighting.” as good vision.  Hmmm.  They can try to convince me of a lot of things, but that’s still not optimal.

My favorite time of day for vision right now is about 6AM.  Diffused, indirect light is GREAT.  A lot of overhead fluorescent lighting in a room is the WORST.

They said the ASA eye proceedure has been  actually been long-time recommended for firefighters and the Air Force and active athletes because of it’s potential for clearer vision, without the risk of knocking the flap off in active duty.  I should feel good that I could professionally wrestle after this is over…or fight fires, what have you.  Whatever I decide to do with my life…I’m set.

Our memory verse this week is “I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am…”  Way to go, Paul!  I’m not with you just yet. 

But, God keeps speaking to me.  Yesterday, he said, “Isn’t it great to think about something getting better with each passing day in a world where so much degrades by the day?” 

Yes, it is.

He said, “Just like that, I’m making believers a little more sharp every day.  And…just like you are experiencing, it takes a lot of baby steps and patience.”

I get it.  We truly are getting better by the day…and we need to! 

He’s building patience in me…I can tell you that.

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
