"The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light" Matt.6:22-23
|Carl Kenneth Carlson, aka my Grandpa Ken|
Do you see the resemblance between Grandpa Ken and his great grandson, Connor, my son? I see more than the physical similarities. I see a gleam in the eyes that screams of an adventurous spirit. There is a shared moment here in these two photos that says,"Life is sweet! The possibilities are endless. I'm happy!"
|Connor one and 1/2 years ago, age 11|
I was strengthened when I stumbled across these pictures yesterday. I couldn't help but think that there is something that Grandpa Ken and Connor share.
That "joie de vivre" that is captured in a snapshot.
Both have their life ahead of them. As I sift through more photos of Ken, I'll look at his eyes. They will tell me how he feels life is treating him. Connor's story is still unfolding. His pictures are starting to show the strain of adolescence.
What do my pictures say about me?
And you? Do they tell the true story?
Eyes never lie. They truly are the window to the soul.
When we forget the power that a point of view, (our attitude) has on a life, we miss the opportunity to choose happiness in the midst of "troubled waters".
Don't forget that deep inside you are happy!
Find that spot today.
