Today I am thankful for my senses and my good sense, if that makes any sense.
I can remember when my daughter was very small and we were teaching her what things were called. We would point to our eyes and ask her “what is this?” She would reply “iiiiii’s”; nose was “noooozzz”; mouth was “mouff” and ear was “errrr”. It was so cute to be able to identify those very useful senses that God gave us. One can often take them for granted as we use them so much throughout our day without any thought to them. Unlike Helen Keller who never knew what it was like to see anything, or ever hear a single sound. Being unable to hear she could not talk either. What a sense of lonely darkness she much have felt, but “feel” is how she carried out her life and lived it fully!
“The best and most beautiful things in the world
cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt within the heart.”
One of my favorite quotes!
I have the ability to see, even though my eye site is not good at all, I cherish what I have. I have the ability to smell some wonderful scents and aromas; therefore I can taste some very pleasing cuisine. I hear with my ears beautiful music, messages, sounds, noises, voices, and even silence. I touch; therefore I feel…which brings about many other senses. Good and useful common sense is nice to have too, although I may not use it wisely in all cases. I thank God for all of these, whether there be five or five hundred.
Hopefully all this makes sense and you now have a sense
of your senses that will not leave you senseless.
