During our visit in Birmingham, Lisa and I also visited some dear friends, Sigurd and Sara Bryan. Lisa and I had Dr. Bryan for our Survey of the Old Testament class at Samford. We have said many times that in his presence we felt like we were on holy ground. Sara is the organist at Shades Crest Baptist Church - our church home when we got married. Looking into Sigurd's eyes one sees humility, kindness, gentleness, love, joy, peace, goodness, faithfulness....
Today we often find ourselves so busy that we fail to look others in the eyes. We fail to see what might be going on there -
You can assume you know what is going on in someone's life -
but when was the last time you looked into his or her eyes?
Open my eyes that I may see....
