A miracle happened today. Did you see it? No, the Mississippi River did not part. No one was cured from leprosy (that I know of….). Nope. Not that kind of miracle.
You see, when we hear the word “miracle,” we expect something dramatic, like someone levitating. But really, there are miracles every day, if we just look.
Today, a friend had a baby. “So what,” you might say. “People have babies every day.” True. But my friend doesn’t have a baby every day. And to me, the fact that ten months ago there was no person and now there is one is a bona fide miracle.
What about you? Did you have a miracle today? Maybe a friend called with just the right words at the right time. Or maybe you got a check in the mail right before one bounced. It might be something as simple as the red sock that got bleached and didn’t turn the whole load pink.
Most of the time, though, we don’t see them. We hit all green lights on the way to pick up our kid from school, and we’re not late, and all we can think of is, “Where am I going to park?”
Don’t get me wrong. I do it too. I probably miss 95% of the miracles that happen in my life every day. But on days like these, when one really big miracle happens in my life, I start to think about the other littler ones.
And maybe, just maybe, by noticing the small miracles, we can attract the big, fat, huge ones. I always did dream of levitating.
