Believing is seeing

On Monday I wrote about watching for miracles and living in wonder. I also put a note on my Facebook profile about it that day.

In response, a friend of mine put up on my profile a Roald Dahl quote that really struck a chord with me, so I offer it to you, too:

"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it."

"Watch with glittering eyes." Isn't that a wonderful description? And the final sentence—"Those who don't believe in magic will never find it"—reminds me of something a preacher said long ago. He said that, though we often say that seeing is believing, he would turn that around and say believing is seeing.

I've thought of that so often since then, and I completely agree with him. When you believe that you'll see miracles and great things, you will. When you are looking for goodness in the world, you will see it. When you believe in yourself, you will achieve.

So today let's "watch with glittering eyes" to see what we notice. Savor it all—and remember to be grateful!
