Limited Vision

I had a medical incident last week, a stroke in my left eye. It has left me with limited vision in my left eye. It feels as though there is a splotchy screen in front of my eye, One thing I am thankful for is our Canadian medical system. At ten a.m.  I saw a optometrist and he diagnosed a stroke in my left eye, he sent me directly to the E.R. at our local hospital, and by 3:30 that afternoon I was seeing an opthamologist who confirmed the optometrist’s diagnosis. I now have a follow-up appointment with another ophthalmologist in a couple of weeks. One thing I am thankful for it that  the clot that caused it took a detour at my eye, otherwise I would have probably had a stroke. One thing is for sure — I am thankful for all of the medical expertise of all the doctor’s that I saw last Friday. And also for the follow-up that I am receiving.

Despite, or maybe because of, this happening, I can see God’s blessings at work. Although it is now difficult for me to see clearly, I can still see the Lord and His divine hand at work in my life. Right now  you may be going through a difficult time. I would urge you to consider your relationship with the Lord and to surrender yourself to His loving care. The difficulty may not go away, but you will have Someone who will walk with you through your time of trial.

About faithfullyhis

My name is Charles Quail and I am a retired Baptist pastor who lives in Dunnville,a small town southeast of Hamilton, Ontario. I also write a weekly column for our local newspaper, The Sachem. It is a column that I have been writing for about eight years. I am married and have two grown daughters. My best buddy was my dog Max, who is now chasing bunny rabbits in sky. I miss him terribly. My reason for wanting to write a blog is friends have told me that this is the next logical step in my writing career. My hope and prayer is that many will be both challenged and blessed by what I write.
