Yesterday I was reading an article that quotes Albert Einstein: 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.
What a wonderful thought. Each moment is an opportunity to look, to listen and to touch the newness of the miracles that God is performing. This is something that I am most aware of at this season of the year. We already have crocuses and snowdrops poking their heads up through the cold damp ground. And the buds on our fruit trees are starting to bulge in expectation of bursting forth into growth.
Thinking about this inspired the writing of this prayer yesterday and also enabled me to go through the day with my eyes more wide open to the miracles of God than usual.
Each moment is a miracle,
A new creation of God’s love,
A new expression of God’s care.
May we open our eyes and see,
May we open our lips and sing praise.
There are other places too in which I am aware of the miracles of God this morning some of which I have noticed as I browsed the internet this morning and I thought that you would appreciate some of the links I came across
Fungi Discovered in the Amazon Will Eat Your Plastic. This article intrigued and awed me. Why would God create something like this in the Amazon where there is probably less plastic than in my house? And talk about God planning for the future. This fungi did not just spring into being when our plastic waste started to pile up – a miracle indeed.
Or for something a little lighter watch this funny scene extracted from the movie “Life is a Miracle” by Emir Kusturica,
