...but now I see!
The wind had sculpted the snow on the lawn, but it took the setting sun to bring out the wave patterns that were already there. Jesus brings the man born blind in John's Gospel (9:1-41) to full sight physically, but only by brushes with neighbors and religious authorities does the man come to deeper and deeper spiritual insight into who Jesus is. We can never sit back and think we know Jesus completely. Recuperating from an illness or surgery or reading a book or watching the most unlikely movie can open our inner eyes to see the face of Jesus more clearly.
