EYEGLASSES MAKE A FASHION STATEMENT

According to the Vision Council of America, approximately 75 percent of adults wear some sort of vision correction. People wear eyeglasses for different reasons. Some people are nearsighted and cannot see objects far away, while other people are farsighted and cannot see objects close by. Eyeglasses offer corrective vision for people who have difficulty seeing.

LOCAL SPOTLIGHT - KENTUCKY HEALTH SOLUTIONS

It is that most wonderful time of the year—no, we are not talking about Christmas. It’s Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Season. Yes, it’s the time of the year when we stress and spend hours on the phone or online shopping for health coverage. The pain of having to shop health coverage, spend hours on the phone or online with one company vs another for our health insurance can be a daunting task.

DO YOU HAVE 20/20 VISION

When you consider what defines healthy eyes, among the criteria is good vision. The American Optometric Association says the term 20/20 vision is used to express normal visual acuity (the clarity or sharpness of vision) measured at a distance of 20 feet. If you have 20/20 vision, you can see clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity is usually measured with a Snellen chart. It’s likely everyone has seen the Snellen chart – usually starting with a huge “E,” .....

I know people of every spiritual world who have greater joy than they ever thought possible because God has met them where they are. There is healing and hope for us all.

Many people feel like a vibrant spiritual life is out of reach. They aren’t even sure they want to reach for it.


We hear friends talk about trusting God, having peace with God, even hearing from God. We have relatives whose lives are shaped in positive ways by their faith. Neighbors have confidence that they will live in a better world after this one. But, at least so far, what transforms others hasn’t convinced us.


“Maybe,” we whisper, “God is for other people but just not for me. Perhaps God is like a square peg and I’m a round hole. We just aren’t made for each other.”


Confession time: I used to try to reshape “round hole” people so they could be like me. I’ve stopped that.


I have learned that people are as different on the inside as on the outside. What troubles us, drives us, what gives us healing and hope, even what separates us from God varies from person to person. I have found that a healthy spiritual life begins with understanding our own spiritual shape.  

YOU ARE NOT A ROUND HOLE; GOD IS NOT A SQUARE PEG

Here’s a quick intro to what I call the five spiritual worlds:


The Foreigner feels isolated and marginalized. Intimacy with God and people is both desperately wanted and difficult to achieve. It often becomes less painful to give up on relationships and travel alone.


Fighters are gripped by injustice and are compelled to help people and fix things. But there are always more problems than resources and the desire to make things right becomes tainted with frustration over society’s indifference.


The Faint feel like they are unseen. They have something to offer, but wonder if they can ever be whole unless and until they do something significant.


Fugitives have a clear sense of right and wrong and want to live right. When they fail, they feel guilty and hope to be forgiven and to make amends.


I call the fifth the world of the Flattened, because these people feel the weight of the world on their shoulders. They are not only aware of their own problems, but carry concern for the serious challenges and pain of others.
