And their eyes were my eyes

Last Sunday I heard this quote and enjoyed it -- having the same eyes as my mother it touched a chord with me. I hope it touches you as well.

"I saw behind me those who had gone, and before me those who are to come, I looked back and saw my father, and his father, and all of our fathers, and in front to see my son and his son, and the sons upon sons beyond.

"And their eyes were my eyes.

"As I felt, so they had felt and were to feel, as then, so now, as tomorrow and forever. Then I was not afraid, for I was in a long line that had no beginning and no end, and the hand of his father grasped my father's hand, and his hand was in mine, and my unborn son took my right hand, and all, up and down the line that stretched from Time that was to Time that is, and Is Not Yet, raised their hands to show the link, and we found that we were one, born of Woman, Son of Man, made in the image, fashioned in the womb by the will of God, the Eternal Father."

Scripture of the Day: Eph. 1:15-16


  1. That was one of my favorite books in high school!! I haven't read it since then though.

    I am so sorry I missed commenting on your birthday!! I was gone most of yesterday and didn't check blogs!!

    I hope you had a wonderful birthday. Did you have a great day?

  2. Wow, that is a powerful quote, thanks for sharing. I often think that it is sad that our grandparents aren't always around when we are old enough to really appreciate them, but look forward to the day when we could all be together like that.


Comments are much appreciated!
