Some things have to be believed to be seen . . . .

There's a lot in this world we can't see. But just because we can't see something, or hold it in our hands, doesn't mean it's not there. We used to think that "seeing is believing," but now we know that "believing is seeing." As architect Frank Lloyd Wright put it: "The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen." This is especially true in difficult times. There are days when all you can see with your eyes are the problems. But if you look with your heart, you will see that the miraculous is all around you. Despite our problems, there is still so much courage, goodness and possibility in each of us that if we could see its glow, it would light the world.

In good times or bad, the story of the human spirit is the story of people who believe in themselves and in one another. Today, give your family and friends the gift of affirming your faith in them. Remind them that their hopes, dreams and aspirations are not just believable, but achievable. Inspire them to believe that the best is yet to be...that there's light at the end of the tunnel...and that they might be that light for someone else.
