I felt light headed at one point. My heart raced constantly, I felt my hearing (which is my peripheral vision) partially overwhelmed with what I expected to hear rather than what I was actually hearing. And by the time of the announcement of the last delay out of Seattle…I remembered all I’d eaten in almost 2 days was just 2 salads! That might have ad something to do with it.

Blindness is often used in the Bible as a metaphor for the state a person is in before truth is revealed; Jennifer’s constant theme of self-examination in light of the work of the Holy Spirit proves this point both eloquently and in a way that inspires.
Couples therapy is a place where individuals who have committed to intertwining themselves attempt to unravel knots between them. It can serve a lot of purposes, but one of the primary purposes is that it shows each member of the couple areas in which they need to grow.
It is conceivable that, with the advance of screen reader technology, mass availability of electronic material, and shift to a paperless society the future of blindness is the elimination of Braille entirely.
