Shining a Light

Posted by on May 28 2009

Sometimes people will say a phrase, out of the blue, and I’ll think, “Oh, man, that says it ALL!”

Let me tell you a little story…

This past weekend my husband and I were going hiking in the woods and decided to search for our water bottle holders with straps. We hadn’t used them in over a year…but they had to be around the house somewhere.

Opening the hall closet (risky at the best of times), my husband realized it was too dark in the closet to find anything. So he hauls out a maximum-power flashlight that could send signals to the moon, and shines it in the closet in hopes of locating the hidden water bottle holders. After a few minutes of fruitless searching he calls out, “I don’t see them in here!”

I trudge over to the closet, grab the flashlight, and use it to point right to the water bottle holders.

My husband shrugs and says, “Too much light…but not enough vision.”

That says it all.

So many times we try to find a solution to something and the very act of analyzing it stops us from really SEEING things right in front of our noses. Ever had that happen to you?
