Miracles

Lights.  Music.  Pageants.  Angels.  Miracles.

Do you believe in miracles?
I believe that miracles still take place every day.

I think that for some reason, we have this understanding that a miracle has to be this grand event like Jesus making the blind man see.
But, I feel like I witness miracles each day.  Who says they have to be grand?

It's a miracle that I get to work safely each day and that I even have a job to complain about.
It's a miracle that I get a boy to read The Diary of Anne Frank and have to take the book away from him so that he will pay attention to the rest of my lesson.

Miracle [mir-uh-kuhl] n. an effect or an extraordinary
 event in the physical world that surpasses all 
human or natural powers and is ascribed 
as a supernatural cause

Every time I see an airplane take off, I think its a miracle that someone had the talent and knowledge to think up a machine like that.  I'm grateful for it keeping me linked to my family.

It's a miracle that a coworker I once had gets to kiss her baby girl to sleep at night and watch her open her Christmas presents this year because she beat cancer.

Sometimes miracles are big and sometimes they are small.
The best thing is to notice them when they happen.

I truly believe that one day we will be blessed with the miracle of peace.

I feel like miracles are one of the reasons life is such a gift.
If I weren't a human, would I get to witness these things?

  1. You look great lady! Love that blazer on you! And I too believe in miracles. My family experienced a big one 6 years ago on Christmas Eve. But I too believe there are miracles in each day!
