“Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe. Besides,” Lila commented after quoting John 20:29, “you can’t see the wind, and yet you believe in it. What’s up with that?”
“You’re right. I can’t see the wind, but I can see the leaves rustling in the trees, I see papers swept away by the breeze. That’s how I know there’s wind.”
“And I can see miracles, and I can see the Holy Spirit moving through people. That’s how I know there’s God.”
“That’s not the same,” Cindy scoffed. “That’s spiritual stuff. Everyone sees leaves moved by wind, not everyone has seen a miracle.”
“Oh, yes they have,” Lila corrected, “they just don’t realize that it’s a miracle. Did you think scientists way back when knew what wind was until they researched it? There are miracles happening all around you, and you don’t even recognize them for what they are. Why do you think you’re still alive after that car crash?”

“I will lift mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121: 1-2)
