What Do We Remember?

“Stuff your eyes with wonder, he said”

“Stuff your eyes with wonder.”

With what do “stuff my eyes”  — at what do I look most, if not, all the time?

TV, my iPad, my iPhone, the faces of the people I love?

What goes into my eyes, my brain leaves an imprint on me and on the others in life.

That reminds me of the restaurant where Carol and I went for lunch after church.

A table of five persons were seated and each one, including a three year old, were fixed on their phone or their iPad.

Looking into another person’s eyes, studying their faces can sing “I love you, I care for you, and I value you” “You are precious in my eyes like a radiant diamond!”

On the other hand, looking away screams “I’m not interested in you,” “You have no value!” “You are trash!”

What we leave behind, what people remember is…

In the words of Maya Angelou:

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
