I snapped this picture during my morning walk at the watershed. I tried so hard to get the bee on the blooms, but he kept flitting around. I thought I hadn’t gotten him at all.
Lo and behold…when I downloaded the pictures, there he was in mid-air! What a surprise!
I didn’t see him in my camera. But just because I didn’t see him didn’t mean he wasn’t there.
This picture below is one taken on the trail from Boat Launch A going toward the breast of the dam. While the remnants of fall remain, evidence of the greenery of spring also begins to push through.
But there’s something else that doesn’t show up on this picture…the spider webs hanging from tree to tree I feel across my face and arms as I walk. Just because you don’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there.
These represent two small examples of things not seen that really are. This concept is the foundation of all faiths, a belief in something unseen as reality. Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
What don’t you see in your life that may really be there?
There is much we can't see because of the limits of our eyesight. Even with microscopes, telescopes, medical scans and tests, the unseen is vastly greater than the seen. There is much we can't know because of the limits of our brainpower.
So true; thanks Sharon.
