"Oh God, please give me eyes!"

Watching the news...listening to the chatter...tired of the 'same old, same old...'  As Solomon put it: 'There is nothing new under the sun...'  But it doesn't have to be, and we MUST do better!

Oh tell me when the day will be

when you will look at me and see
just a person--not a color, a sex or a race?
Must I request my sight be gone
so that we may peacefully go on?
Then I would miss your beauty!  That would be disgrace!
For we must see things with the heart
lest, otherwise, we tear apart and,
with judgments and idiosyncrasies, impeach!
The vision is bias in ALL eyes,
but the truest heart can recognize
the glory and wonder God has placed within us each!

O glorious day, come ye ever so fast

that we may put this blight in our past
and leave it there and, at long last, get along!
Every one of us has a beating heart,
and regardless who we are we have a part
in creating ONE harmonious, living song!

What needs to be done has taken too long.  The same old issues get brought up.  With the same tendencies we continue to damage and another!  We are all created in the image of God.  May we see Him when we look at one another and treat each other with what He is: LOVE!  No matter who we may be looking at.
