Hidden but listening!

“I don’t know what would have happened to me if I hadn’t been able to hear.”

Ray Charles

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Can you see me?

Sitting in a room filled with hundreds of people but no one saw her…

Living in a  home and she was overlooked…..

Such a large family but no one asked about her…

Her tears poured down but no one wiped them…

She was lost in her pain….

She was screaming for help…

They laughed at her…

They teased her…

They belittled her…

In the midst she became bitter…

But she knew that was not her final destination…

She asked God can you see me…..

He answered yes and sent someone who heard her silence and they extended their hand to call her to her moment of FREEDOM!!!!

HIDING but she could HEAR!

I was asked “what do you see in that person?” My reply was “everything that you don’t!” Angela Lambert

It’s not about what you look at but what you see! Blind people can view the beauty in something that those who have sight tend to overlook.

Our eyes all see things differently. It can be two people looking at the same thing and they both see something different. When I see people the first thing I zero in on is their hair because that is what I do as a profession. My sister on the hand looks right at the teeth because she works in the field of dentistry. Who can look at someone and see their heart? No one because the heart is hidden. So how do you know who a person really is just by looking at them?

Life is about soul searching and getting to know people for who they are not for what they show! You may look at person and not know they just lost a loved one! Or that their job is on the line. Or that their life is in shambles! You don’t know if they are fighting a demon of suicide! Looking and seeing can be deceiving but it’s your eyes so use them accordingly! Just remember if the mirror was placed in your face will you be looking or seeing!

Be mindful how you view others. Never walk past a stranger and not speak you may have just made their day! Never look down on someone because they do not look like you!

The thought I would like to leave you with is that maybe it’s time to stop using the deception of the eyes to view what is hidden.
