THANK GOD FOR YOUR EYES


| November/December 1957



TO BE ABLE TO SEE IS one of the greatest Gifts God has given mankind. They say that most of the information we retain is that which is received through the eye. Much of our modern education is presented with the movie camera. For a long time we have had blackboards in our school rooms. Our magazines are loaded with vivid pictures, mostly in color.

I have a feeling we should never cease to thank the Good Lord for our eyes. Many people have lost their sight and they, most of all folks, will say the same.

We had a trip this summer that reminded me very emphatically of the above truth.

We saw the Wisconsin Dells with the boat ride on the Wisconsin River. We were thrilled with the wonderful rock formations on either side of the river. Then there was the Indian ceremonial with their colorful costumes.

The Johnson's took us to Spooner, Wisconsin, to see the life-size wood carvings of the Lord's Supper and other life-sized Biblical scenes carved from wood.

In Minnesota, Fred Gronninger showed us the beginning of the Mississippi River. We had the privilege of wading across that 'Father of Waters.'
