I have seen the light (and I'd like my sunglasses please)

Have you ever wondered about that part.... "Lighter than at noonday." ?

(Joseph Smith History 1: 30 While I was thus in the act of calling upon God, I discovered a light appearing in my room, which continued to increase until the room was lighter than at noonday, when immediately a personage appeared at my bedside, standing in the air, for his feet did not touch the floor. )

I have.

The noonday sun is pretty bright. How can anything be much brighter than that? I mean, can you even imagine anything brighter?

Well, I got my eyes dilated this week at the optometrist. I don't think I've ever had them dilated before.

Wow!!! Now I get it. Yeah, things can get a whole lot brighter. Amazing. Kind of makes me wonder what else we don't really experience in our limited capacities.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway--see the post below!

I have worn glasses since I was 18 months old---They dilated my eyes so often I thought those plastic black glasses WERE my glasses. But I can honestly say I had never made the analogy before--love the way you think, girl!
