Walking with your eyes closed can be seen in two ways: having faith in being led or being really tired. On Monday morning, I was walking down the hallway when I closed my eyes. I was really tired and I thought that I could easily walk a few steps with my eyes closed. I was incorrect. I stepped off my shoe, tumbled, and fell. I landed on my right knee and and left hand. I went all the way down. I was lucky enough to only have one witness to this sad mishap, an employee of the company that we share the building with. He asked if I was ok. I replied that the only thing that was really hurt was my pride. As I sat up (in a skirt no less,) my co-worker came around the corner. She laughed and asked if I was ok. I replied that I was, but that I really enjoyed the perspective from the floor and would stay there a while. All in all, an interesting experience. My knee was a little skinned and I ended up with a small bruise on my hand and a slightly sore shoulder. I would recommend that everyone walk with their eyes open.
On another note, I have applied to attend Utah Valley University and hope to being accepted and enrolled for the Spring 2009 semester. I will probably only be able to go to one evening class a semester or do two internet classes because of work. We'll see. It is a leap of faith because I know it's what the Lord wants me to do, but I'm unsure of how I'll do. I guess that's where faith comes in.
