The ABC's of Life...M is for Miracle


"After all, I don't see why I am always asking for private individual selfish miracles, when every year there are miracles like white dogwood."
~Anne Morrow Lindbergh

"The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green earth in the present moment; to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available now."
~Thich Nhat Hanh

"Miracle shall follow miracle and wonders shall never cease" ~Florence S. Shinn



Ordinary Miracle
"It's not that unusual... When everything is beautiful...It's just another Ordinary miracle today...The sky knows when it's time to snow...Don't need to teach a seed to grow...It's just another Ordinary miracle today...Life is like a gift, they say...Wrapped up for you everyday...Open up, and find a way... To give some of your own...Isn't it remarkable? Like everytime a raindrop falls...It's just another Ordinary miracle today...The birds in winter have their fling...And always make it home by spring...It's just another Ordinary miracle today...When you wake up everyday...Please don't throw your dreams away...Hold them close to your heart...Cause we are all a part...Of the ordinary miracle...Ordinary miracle...Do you want to see a miracle...It seems so exceptional...That things work out after all...It's just another Ordinary miracle today...The sun comes out and shines so bright...And disappears again at night...It's just another Ordinary miracle today...It's just another Ordinary miracle today."
(song by Sarah McLachlan)

  4. Ordinary Miracles... sigh! How often we take them for granted, hurrying by and forgetting to truly notice and enjoy them, and certainly not taking the time to be overcome in sheer wonderment. Thank you for this gentle reminder. Sooo LOVE this song and your butterfly photos are gorgeous too.
    Hugs xx
