seeing with blinders on

I have told you this before, but feel I need to repeat it.In this life, we see as if we have blinders on. We see only what is in front of us, but very often, we see only the what directly affects us with only glimpses of anything more. It seems that when we pass over, the blinders are off. What is now so hazy is then made clear. We "get" it-- we understand at a level not so clearly understood now. It is hard to believe such a thing, perhaps, which is the whole point of faith, I imagine. We believe in something that we have little or no evidence to believe but hoping that at some point we will have our blinders removed and that we will truly "get it." I imagine we will see clearly when we reunite on the other side.
