The Nose is Getting Nosey


Sometimes we don’t see very well.
Not like we don’t have 20/20 vision
or glasses or contacts to wear.

And I’m not talking about the glasses you drink out of. Obviously you’d look kind of silly with drinking glasses pressed over your eyes. I mean corrective lenses.

Which is weird because do you ever see lenses being corrective? Aren’t they usually just hanging around on your nose? And come to think about it, what has your nose got to do with seeing anyway?

Really if the eyes just did their job of seeing (exception of course for eyes that are actually blind) instead of bringing the nose into it wouldn’t sight be all the better for it? Unless of course you’re in the dark and know there’s a tub of chopped onions by the door well then your nose could sniff your whole body over to the door. But, really? Who would have a tub of chopped onions by their door? Not sure your neighbors would appreciate that odor wafting down the hallways of your apartment building.
So if you’re living in an apartment I wouldn’t think the onions by the door would help your sight because your neighbors might get mad and shove your head into the onions and you’d end up crying. And your nose would run. And why would the nose take on the task of the legs anyway?

Boy, that nose is nosey isn’t it? First seeing for the eyes now running for the legs? I hear it helps out the mouth with tasting too. What’s next? Is it going to think for the brain? Sure hope the brain has the good sense to tell the nose, “No thank you”. But then again is the brain ordering the eyes not to see so the nose gets pulled into seeing and you end up with your head in a tub of chopped onions and your nose starts running for the legs? No wonder we can’t see, we keep over thinking the situation and we’re blind to what’s right in front of us.

God created our body with lots of parts and every part has a purpose and for the most part they’re not interchangeable. Even if they are it involves moving, oh say a kidney or a lung, to another person. Doctors just don’t go in and flip things around in our bodies because the different parts are equipped to do one speciality. I mean our body parts aren’t Legos!

Point is the church is like our bodies and everyone has their part, the thing God equipped them to do within the body of Christ. His church.

So are you an eye trying to get your nose to see for you or your nose to run for you? Leave that nose alone and let it deal with it’s own business. Get busy in your church doing your part and no one has their head in a tub of chopped onions for being nosey. Now has anyone seen my glasses?.

Learning to Lean – Moving Ahead – The 180

“A cheerful look brings joy to the heart,

And good news gives health to the bones.”

    Proverbs 15:30 N.I.V.



Life for me would be much easier

If You could clear Your way to see

To grow me a set of handles

On either side where my knee used to be.


Since my legs are so heavy

Maybe also Lord could You create

Me a jet-pack no fuel needed hover craft

It would really be useful if we’re late.


With the way my legs swell

Perhaps an expandable bump out

On the car door to accommodate the size

Then I could go places again and I’d shout!


Since we can’t afford a handicap accessible kitchen

Making kitchen tasks and cooking hard

Could You perhaps just shrink and grow them

Until the money’s on our debit card?


Turning over and the C-pap can torment my sleep

So perhaps a solution could possibly be

To just lift me up and turn me over

Or some sort of a non-evasive rotassirie?


It gets sort of lonely being home all the time

But I can’t stand my chair for long to sit

Maybe You could find a way somehow

To keep this amputation up and fit?


Mostly Lord, in all seriousness, I plea

You help me past this season of grief and pain

Help me laugh when the tears roll down

And turn to You my peace to claim.

    d.f.a.v. 10/29/14
