What do you see?

“I saw something like a sea made of glass…” Revelations 15:2

I spy with my own little eyes...

I spy with my own little eyes…

John of Patmos, a pastor of the late first century, saw visions and wrote them into the last book of the bible called Revelations. Merriam-Webster tells us a revelation is (among several definitions) “an act of making something known.” The whole book of Revelations will always be a mystery to me, as I don’t think or live in the gray areas of life. Black or white concepts are revealed in my brain crisper, cleaner, and clearer.

For the past two weeks, we’ve had our four and five (nearly six) year- old grandsons visiting us. When we’re in the car and they start to wiggle around or begin to bicker between themselves,  I’ll say something like, “I see something green with an arrow ….” and they immediately stop whatever they were doing and compete to be the first one to tell me what I saw.

Sometimes I wish John the Patmos was riding shot-gun with me throughout my day to reveal the mysteries of Revelations in my black and white world.

Thank you, God, for revealing to us the mysteries of life a little at a time. Amen.
