If Eyes are the Windows

People say that eyes are the windows to the soul.  Actually I’m not sure which people.  I’ve just heard that phrase my whole life.    In the bible it says, “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.” – Matthew 6:22 We have windows to our soul on our face.  Have you ever stopped to really think about that?  That’s  mind blowing.
