. . . everything!
"All God's creations great and small,
the Golden Gate and the Taj Mahal..."
- The Miracle by Queen
Golden garden gate"
"We're having a miracle on earth, mother nature does it all for us. . .
The wonders of the world go on . . ."
. . . and on and on whether or not we are paying attention.
Slow down and observe.
"If every leaf on every tree, could tell a story that would be a miracle. . . "
I would be the first one in line to buy that book!
And what a story it would tell about photosynthesis...a miracle all by itself.
So much going on inside that leaf, a life force.
Slow down and appreciate.
"There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as if everything is." - Albert Einstein
So often we (I), associate miracles with being on a grand scale...like when our kids were born, or someone survives a really horrible car crash. Or when a tornado wipes out a town and there are no fatalities.
But the reality is, a million little miracles happen to each of us every single day and probably go unnoticed as such. Maybe, or more likely, a lot of them are things we might associate with as mere annoyances (like hitting every red light). Things that put us in the right place at the right time, that connects us with someone else, that keeps us from harms way. Because timing is everything.
We probably even think of them as more of a coincidence rather than miracles.
But you know, I imagine something really incredible, even miraculous perhaps, would happen if we chose to live all our moments as if they were miracles. Maybe even something called gratitude, because gratitude changes the heart for sure, and it doubles that thing called joy.
