Ironic that a man who has made his living as a comedian and inspirational speaker would occasionally suffer from “Ingrown Eyeball Syndrome.”
“Ingrown Eyeball Syndrome” is a condition where the eyeballs turn completely around and can only look inward. These are the symptoms of the disease:
- Blind to the needs and joys of other people
- Blind to the evidence of God’s love in the little things in life
- Blind to gratitude and oblivious to reasons for celebration
The sufferer of Ingrown Eyeball Syndrome is negative, self absorbed, and no fun to be around. They can be contagious!
Thank God I have discovered a cure.
Six little people reminded me of the steps to healing this malady and living fully alive!
So when your eyes balls begin to cross, your vision becomes narrow and dark, when fear and doubt threaten to rule the day. You may find these steps to healing helpful.
Note: The youtube attachment below will make these steps very clear.
1. Open your eyes and see the cherry tree
2. Lift your hands and revel in the joy of the blossoms
3. Be the monkey that shakes the tree for someone else
Do you ever suffer from Ingrown Eyeball Syndrome? When you opened your eyes what was the “Cherry Tree” you saw? What blossoms fell?
Too cute =o)
Doesn’t take much to make a child smile
I enjoyed watching the children catching the blossoms. I think that’s a good way to get over Ingrown eyeball syndrome-it also helps just to help someone else.
By the way, my son and I recently viewed your video Get’em While They’re Hot and enjoyed it very much. I said something about it being funny that you kept forgetting David Pendleton’s name. My son said in a very disgusted voice, “What can you expect mom! He’s 62 yrs old!”
Very funny!! Thanks for sharing that Connie.
Thank you Ken for reminding me, It’s not about the money. It’s not about me. It’s about finding out how to make a difference in someone elses life that will give them the joy of knowing Our Father cares for each of us and sends us to each other to remind us of that truth.Through the deeds of grace laid up for each one of us before the foundation of the earth when we were just a glint in His Eyes. The greatest joy is knowing He made us for His Purposes. We are all created to perform acts of love bringing light into this dark world. “The Spirit of Man IS The Candle of The Lord.” So, let us all ascend to His Holy Hill and seek Him where He can be found and discover that true joy of abiding and living in and for Him. All He desires is to love and be loved. The lyrics of the song ring true…”He’s got the whole world in His Hands” and He will never let it or us be taken out of them.
Great observation. Thank you for being a part of the conversation.
Hi Ken, I just wondered if you were ever taken in by someone’s prank or joke on April Fool’s Day?? I actually believed the hoax in our local Forest of Dean (Wales, UK) Newspaper a few years ago. The sheep roam wild and free throughout the forest. The Forest Commission reported a new cross breed of sheep had been discovered….and a very realistic photo of it was shown. It was a cross between a wild boar and a black faced sheep! You guessed it, I was taken in!! I think women are more gullible than men especially if it is reported in print in the news or a journal. Anyway, I did manage a few years ago to convince my eldest son to believe I had just discovered I was pregnant again with our 6th child. He told his Dad and there was some doubt until he saw my face…then he was NOT a believer!! Whatever you do have a great April Fool’s Day everyone and laugh at yourself!
I love snow and this is like having snow in warm weather. I love how it looks, even on the ground.
