GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
We've all said it at one point or another, haven't we? "If I didn't see it with my own two eyes, I wouldn't have believed it."
We're usually referencing some incredible feat that seems to defy logic, break the boundaries of human strength or oppose the very forces of nature. Consider video you've reviewed of a 95-pound woman lifting a car all by herself to free a trapped kitten or an elephant cleaning litter left behind by inconsiderate humans with his trunk at a wildlife preserve or the Cleveland Cavaliers trouncing the Golden State Warriors in the last moments of Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals in the mother of all comebacks.

Either way; sometimes we feel we must witness or behold something personally to give it credence or sanction it with our buy in. Other times, we just have to take things on faith. Still other times, we have to actually be the source for someone else, Capisce? Faith is a very powerful thing to have, to hold, and to share. We all need it.
Faith in our children to make the right choices based on what we've taught them; faith in our workplace leaders to be kind and fair as well as analytical and uncompromising; faith in our elected officials to act in the best interest of the greater good -- and faith that, even when all hope seems lost and we feel we can no longer stand...someone is holding us upright long after we should have fallen down. We can't see Him, but He's there; I can feel it. If seeing is believing then trusting is knowing...all it takes is a smidgen of faith.
Hang in there, friends; we're all going to make it to the Finals ... you'll see! #staystrongmimialiandneal #loveyouall
R. Alleluia. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves. Many are the troubles of the just man, but out of them all the LORD delivers him. R. The Lord hears the cry of the poor. Alleluia, alleluia. You believe in me, Thomas, because you have seen me, says the Lord; blessed are those who have not seen, but still believe?
