Seeing is Believing

Some days, what we see is not really what we think we have seen. This butterfly made me do a double take as the camouflage “eye” was so large. The brain has to process the visual image and make sense of it–and this does not always happen immediately. Sometimes what we appear to see is not in fact what we really see. With the information that we see, we may react. This butterfly is a reminder that it is better some days to really take time to process something and not jump to any conclusions.

How often do you think you see something clearly and then realize you are mistaken?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
