Circle time is one of my favorite parts of my day at work, especially when it’s story time! Brown bear brown bear what do you see? is one of my favorites because it’s a book and a song.
The answer to the question the author of this book poses is “I see a red bird looking at me.” I presume the various make believe living creatures throughout the book do not make eye contact with whom they are speaking with because the red bird did not say he saw a brown bear, but instead a yellow duck and so on and so on.
The children in my class are absolutely mesmorized by this song and accompanying storybook as were my own when they were small and I read it to them..
Sometimes in life that’s how it is. We can be absolutely mesmorized by something, yet not even truly see what’s right before our eyes.
We may be able to see with our eyes, but sometimes we are blind to what the true picture is revealing to us.
I encourage each of us to look
beyond what our naked eye can see. To look through the eyes of God. To truly see the best in everything. To love unconditionally. To look for opportunities to be Christ’s hands and feet. Only then will we truly see.
Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
t open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.’
Love and laughter,
