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...

  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.
