My eyesight had always been pretty good with near 20/20 vision. As I’ve aged, however, I’ve experienced dryness of the eyes, and my doctor has prescribed stronger eye drops every year after my exam. However, finding the eye drops unpleasant to use, I soon stopped using them each time.
Finding a dark spot within the white of one of my eyes, I made an appointment to have my eyes checked. The doctor said that my eye was inflamed, and he prescribed even heavier gel eye drops, telling me to use them at night before going to bed and more often if I wanted to. This time I tried to abide.
Still, redness would appear at the bottom of the eyes, and I continued to forget to use the drops before going to bed. Sometimes I used them in the morning, but I know that I probably needed them morning and night.
It was late in the evening when I decided I was tired enough to sleep. I got myself ready for bed, and crawled in, forgetting the eye drops. Soon my internal vision, or mind’s eye, began its nightly work of providing images, and often of people I do not know.
I normally see a white cast background, knowing that the information is directly from God. Instead, this time the entire backdrop was a vibrant red. I didn’t think this was a good sign, so I began to recite the words I knew to ask for protection in God’s white light.
