OK. Si this is fun.


I oftn hav trouble focsing, but toda is reely bad.  Just back frim the aye doctor, and my eys are deleted.  Have no ides what im tipping.


Everything ws out of focus as I walked outof the bulding after my appointmnt.  And now, between the focs issues and auto-corect, I just hope that hothing I typ comes out offensive.


Ever have days lik that?  No mater how hard you tri, thins just don’t lok right, or whatevr you typ or txt just seems to com out rong?


It wood be easy to git discuraged.  But, yo no over time that thins wil git better.


When thins jist don’t seem right in our world, that’s when we turn to Jesus—for clarity, for strenhgt, for suport inour efforts to serv others. We know that we ar not alone in our struggles.  Even Peter, the Rock, struggled.  And Jesus heps him when he cant see the way.  


“But I have prayed for you, Simon (Peter), that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.” (Luke 22:32)  (typing is esy when you cut n past!)


Peter turns to Jesus.  His repentance will offer him renewd faith, so that he might strenthgn his brothers and sistrs in the faith.


There is a hym that poped into my hed when I thoguth about this.  Written in 1922,it’s jumped back into the mainstream and is being used as a song of prayr at many churches.   It’s one of thos early 20-century hyms that I can stil heer my mom singing as she washed dishes when Iwas litle:

“Turn your eyes upon Jesus

Look full in His wonderful face

And the things of earth will grow strangely dim

In the light of His glory and grace.”  (luve cut n past!)


When we turn to Jesus, things somehow seem to come into focus.  (Even my typing is getting beter, right?)  And the troubles of this world grow strangely dim.


I cud use this reminder on a regular bases.  How about yo?


Peac, my friends.
