THE COCK-EYED SQUID

From the deepest depth of our world’s Oceans comes a life lesson for us in today’s world.

I first heard about this strange creature on a Christian devotional and set out to learn more.

I hope you too may get a gentle inspiration.

This deep sea squid has two vastly different eyes.

The larger eye has wider vision. It’s other eye is smaller and only process information from its limited perception. This smaller and dimmer eye processes only necessary information;

The larger eye with the far greater Vision is always focussed on the LIGHT above. From that light it processes everything necessary for survival.

We are not equipped with awkward unbalanced vision.

We are given the opportunity to discipline ourselves to read the Handbook for life the WORD and be encouraged to live meaningfully;

We have eyes to look at swirling society around us and process the necessary,

But, we have also have God the Holy Spirit Who will ever focuses our eyes heavenwards on THE HOLY LIGHT of CHRIST.

Something to think about. Unlike our sea creature the squid we have great freedom of choice on where we focus both our eyes, Light or Darkness

Blessings!.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
