If you were forced to give up one sense, but gain super-sensitivity in another, which senses would you choose?
Last year my son was studying about the five senses. “The eyes are for seeing, the hands are for touching, the nose is for smelling, the ears are for hearing..”
“And what is the tongue for?” I asked. “For sticking out!” is the cheeky reply I got.
He doesn’t know yet what a blessing the five senses are even though every minute he is using them all to soak in his atmosphere.
Without my eyes I would not have seen the beautiful sights around the world from the Eiffel tower swathed in a golden light, the architecture of Rome, the blue waters of the Mediterranean, the awe-inspiring Pyramids of Giza to heavenly Switzerland.
Without my hands I would not be able to paint or craft or know the pleasure of creating something with my own hands.
Without my nose, well without my nose I would just look funny wouldn’t I? And not know what flowers smelt like. I wouldn’t even know when to change pampers when my son was little!
Without my tongue I would not know the sweetness of honey, and the sourness of lemons or to differentiate between a hot chapatti and ice cream!
Without my ears I would not have heard the rich laughter of my child, the sweetest sound in the world.
God in his Graciousness gives us these blessings without us asking for them. I could not choose to give up any of them.
