Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above,
where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:1-3

The Blind Man Sees

Tonight the ladies of the Hearts Above Bible Study meet to discuss John 9. For the fourth time. Now the ninth chapter of John is not an especially long chapter, nor an especially difficult chapter. But for some reason, we find other things to talk about. This is not typical for this wonderful group of ladies. Of course, we chat, but we know why we've come together and we get into God's Word. Except when it comes to the ninth chapter of John.

Last week, I was the culprit. Still flying high from my writers' conferences experiences, I enthusiastically told all and my dear friends were an affirming audience. The week before that our group was small and we found ourselves talking about personal issues so that we cried and we laughed and we shared.

Those times are important for Bible Study members and I appreciate them. And yet, tonight, we've got to get that blind man healed. I'm sure he's weary of the darkness.
