If you could see me now, you'd know my left eye is a combination of black, red, purple, green, and yellow.  
See, I took my dog for a walk and he saw his friend coming up the street.  He took off, much like the dog above and down I went.

Because I held onto him, I fell flat on my face, hitting the pavement with nothing to break my fall.  Had I let go of Tommy, it would have been fine.  He'd have run to Casey, said hello, and I'd have caught him.  But because I held on so tightly, I suffered the consequences.

What are you holding onto that you should let go of?  


  1. You are a champ, Ellen.
    Your rainbow eye shows that you are one who gets up when others would stay down.

    Serve on.

  2. "Rainbow eye"--interesting way of putting it Carolyn. Rather makes it sound artistic don't you think? I'll have to remember that one. :)

  3. You're such an inspiration. Leave it to you to turn a painful "rainbow eye" into an opportunity for others to learn more about our journey with Christ. Praying you'll heal quickly...

  4. Wow, Ellen, some people to to extremes to get a good analogy!!! Praising God for His protection and praying for a quick recovery!

  5. Funny Vonda! It certainly wasn't intentional! And it is healing slowly, as long as I don't laugh. Turns out a lot of facial expressions involve the area around your eyes. I found out the hard way.

  6. Funny that I'm just now reading this...did you see Vonda's post on the CCC site today? Talk about an extreme analogy =o) You will enjoy it Ellen, here's the link:

    I hope you have healed well! See you tomorrow?!?
