Boy who sees
A young couple makes a stop along the freeway. Their son has just learned to walk as the couple eats their lunch, the joy of their son walking through the warm grass in the shade of a pine tree which gave air to the occasion.
Parking in the handicapped parking spot, adjoined to the young couple's car. The old man makes his way out of the car. Combating the pain and aging signs he earned over the years of life. He stands and reaches for his cane. As he stands up and begins a journey of working out the pain of his age.
The old man makes his way to the pine tree, a short distance from the young couple. The old man closes his eyes and thanks God for his guarding angel, who just a short mile earlier had saved him from a terrible accident. A driver who had fallen asleep at the wheel was racing to catastrophe the target was the old man in his car. In that moment, the old man calls out to God, help us!
The car only a fraction of an inch away from colliding, the head of the young lady driving had bounce off the steering wheel, and then she awoke. The car glided to a stop to safety at the side of the road.
The old man now safe and from any harm turns opens his eyes and leans upon his cane. He noticed the child making his way toward him. The young couple watches the child and offers him a treat. But his gaze, which is transfix to lead him on a journey through the warm grass toward the old man.
The old man could see the child would continue on his journey toward him. So he walks away from the tree along the sidewalk to discourage the child. The old man now sees what the child is racing toward. The old man smiles when he sees too, a tall figure dress in white in a mist of sunlight hiding from the unbelieving eyes of humanity. It was the Angel who had kept the old man safe.
The young child stands now at the Angel's feet, looking up with a smile of delight. The couple gathers up the picnic remnant. The young lady takes hold of the child, placing him in his car seat. At they drove off, the Angel now seated next to the child.
The old man prays for their safety and praise God. Shalom to the child who sees. May the face of God shine on him and keep him safe from the dangers of this world. Bless the couple who has such a child that sees.
