Isaiah 35:5-6

"Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert."
Isaiah 35:5-6

This is great stuff.  Talking about the time around the second coming... the chapter heading calls it the "day of restoration."  And it's cool... like everything that wasn't in balance, will be.  Isn't that an interesting idea?  We get used to things being out of balance in our lives... and when we ask people to be fair, we usually mean in our favor.  Isn't it cool that we can all have an abundance? :)  Too often in this life people have to step on someone else to "get ahead" ... like it is a race for the individual, completely separate from everyone else.  And, really... as soon as we start thinking like that, we lose.  Because really, to succeed in this test, we have to help other people succeed.  We have to lift each other all this petty sabotaging of each other is really hurting us.  And, in other thoughts... think of all the ways that we are lame and blind and dumb... and desertlike.  The Lord will bring water to our parched ground, and sight to our eyes.  To finally be able to really see... can you think of anything more fabulous? :)
