My left leg was swollen for a long time after a nasty fall the year before. MY doctor told me there was nothing to help just elevate it and wear compression socks. I prayed about it asking God to heal it. Time passed…I didn’t pay attention to it.Then one day I looked and couldn’t believe my eyes My left leg is back to normal ! Prayer works …Thank You God!
The fact that the universe and its elements have aligned to make life on earth possible and sustainable is a miracle in itself. What are the odds?
The miracle of friendship.
I traveled to southern Oregon from eastern West Virginia to visit my cousin and the flowers in southern Oregon are just so incredibly beautiful … wild flowers, roses, lavendar … they are everywhere! To me the beauty and variety are miraculous as well as being able to see the vivid and myriad of colors is miraculous as well.
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
― Albert Einstein
Yes the word miracle is overused, and
whether Einstein said this or not, I think it implies the practice of seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary which will nourish the practice of gratitude. THAT is the way to live.
Thank you for this, Nancy. I came back to read what others had shared after my grumpy-cat moment. This is an antidote to my linguistic and too-much-capitalism feelings in my post.
Appreciate you sharing the quote! A beautiful way to live.
The miracle of Love. The simple three-word sentence, “I Love You”. When the I and You disappear, there remains (always) Love.
“When the I and You disappear, there remains (always) Love”. – love this
Small miracles daily!
The latest one, my mom had so many religious statues, sacramentals and articles that we couldn’t take them all.
My research told me to bury what we didn’t need anymore in the ground as ground is sacred, or burn them.
I had no one or place to dig a whole big enough and metal won’t burn. So I put off what to do because I was at a loss!
I woke up yesterday knowing to take them all to a religious store. Found one not far. I went in and the man took them all and said he would find a good home for everything.
I cannot explain where that thought came from as I was focused on how, where to dig a hole, but amazingly overnight an answer came!
A small miracle for me:)
The sun is up, the birds are singing and the tree outside my window is alive with color and a gentle breeze. What could be more miraculous than that!
The fact that I am inside my house right now is a miracle. It took billions of years of evolution to go from chemical elements to stars and planets to life to humans to the industrial revolution, which was necessary to create the kind of house I live in. My house is an element of the universes ever-increasing thresholds of complexity.
the miracle to be able to read commentaries of people who are far abroad and feeling , thinking similar to me
So many! Out in my cottage in the Swedish forest. Flowers, the sun, the wind in the trees, my cat.. Everything is really a miracle if Im reminded to put on those lenses.
The amazing resilience of the human spirit in the Ukraine – the beauty of my garden and the sweet finches that come to the bird feeder – a loving, long-term relationship.
Grumpy cat here: The word “miracle” is overused. It’s supposed to be something we can’t explain with reference to natural or scientific laws. Now the word is used to sell “miracle” pills, salves, fast fixes–hope in a capsule or bottle, the promise that you can have something without having to put forth any effort. I’m grateful for many, many things that are not miracles. They are the workings of nature or the product of attention or effort or dedication or some other admirable quality. That’s enough for me.
Barb, Thank you. I found myself unable to answer this question. There have been several days of such a response recently. Your answer was so helpful and so right on for me.
