Wow! this is a good question. How often do we pay attention to our senses, as I type this, there is so much going on that I would't have given any mind to. It would have all been buried somewhere deep within my sub-conscience or just a blur, if that much. Let's start with SMELL: I can smell my coffee next to me and sweet peas steaming on the stove. HEAR: The oscilattion of my fan, the clicking of the keyboard as I type, the television in the other room, and Ludovico Einaudi 's "Berlin Song" on my ipod. SIGHT: I can see that my bedroom needs tidying up, my vine plant is standing tall and green with flowing vines. The photos on my laptop dropbox is open. TOUCH: My hand on my leg, the cool air of the fan, the hard plastic of the keyboard, I can still remember how the butterfly felt on my finger; tickly and powdery. TASTE: The dark bitter taste of my coffee (which I prefer black) "cafe bustelo", the tingling in my feet as I sit Indian style on my bed... time to stretch these legs.

As I explored my senses, I'm reminded of how much I take for granted. The gift of sight, hearing, touch, tasting, and smell. With each passing day I go mindlessly through every second, minute and hour, rarely if ever, giving thanks for any of these gifts, it's all happenstance until you or I should lose one of these abilities. There are a lot of things (material) I can go without, that only requires some mental readjusting, but my senses; I don't ever won't to have compensate for any of them. I'm so blessed to still have these gifts functioning in my life. Thank you Jesus.

Unity and Diversity in One Body
1 Corinthians 12:12 For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ. 13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into[c] one Spirit. 14 For in fact the body is not one member but many. 15 If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body? 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling? 18 But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased. 19 And if they were all one member, where would the body be? 20 But now indeed there are many members, yet one body. 21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. 23 And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty, 24 but our presentable parts have no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it, 25 that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. (NKJV)
