Miracles


I took this photo last week in the park. I am forever trying to get pictures with rays of sunlight streaming out of the clouds. I like the quote attributed to Jon Bon Jovi because I think it's true. Miracles are perceived by those receiving them. To someone else, a specific incident might mean nothing.

For instance, last week when hubby and I entertained the seniors, I went behind the piano to borrow the bench. I looked up at the songbook and saw it was open to "Moon River," a song which brings back some fond memories. (You can read about it HERE.) So I sat for a minute and played the song. Was it simply chance that the book was open to that page? I suppose it could be, but I think it was a little hello.

So keep your eyes open. Miracles are everywhere.

I love this! And the photo is beautiful!

You're right about the way we perceive things. Personally, I don't believe in coincidences. I think that song book was open to that page on purpose, like you said. So many times we miss these "little" miracles God's giving us. He speaks to us every day in small ways, but we're usually too busy to notice.

Thanks for the reminder to keep my eyes and heart open!

Emily: Yes, we usually are too busy to notice most of the time. Got to slow down and pay attention. :-)
