T-119 : Eye Pray
Lately my eyes have been slow to close at the beginning of group prayers; that or they've popped open during. I find myself thinking of my mom. I don't know why but I recall her often having her eyes open during group prayers looking around at everyone in the group. I guess I wouldn't have been able to notice it if my eyes weren't open, too. Closing the eyes does seem like the ultimate act of reverence and focus. Some opening to view loved ones in a reverent state doesn't seem like such a horrible thing, though; especially if it's only occasionally. What say you? Do you ever find your eyelids light when prayer time rolls around?
