Sometimes, I don’t even know that I’m blind. I’ve forgotten what it’s like to see. I don’t even think to ask to be healed. Then, Jesus comes along. Sometimes I’m just walking to my broken well, wanting to fill my water jar and, all of a sudden, Jesus is there. Sometimes…maybe this Lent…I’m sitting in my blindness and, all of a sudden, somebody’s rubbing clay in my eyes. “Sometimes you get tired. And sometimes you just get tired of being tired” (AA). Sometimes, in our spiritual malaise, we forget what’s possible. We get so caught up in coping that we forget what it’s like to be free.
