Just having had a cataract operation, I can testify what a beautiful place is God’s creation. I can now see colours clearer and appreciate all over again the beauties of this world in which we live. I suppose it’s like life really; we put up with second best without ever realising what we’re missing. With the hymn writer I can now say:-
Heaven above is softer blue, Earth around is sweeter green,
Something lives in every hue, Christlike eyes have never seen.
