There are positive and amazing stories out there – and I am going to be on the look out for them every Monday to start the week. They might come from memories, they might be in events right now, but it just seems that the world is in need of miracles and the acknowledgement of miracles.
I acknowledge the challenges, the gloom and doom but I want to have a Miracle Monday.
If you want to join me and have your own miracle Monday just post it in the comments here and on your own blog and please share your own stories of miracles (large or small) from your life and if okay with them the lives of friends or neighbours.
Miracle is defined thus:
- A surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is considered to be divine.
- A highly improbable or extraordinary event, development, or accomplishment.
- “Miracles are spontaneous, they cannot be summoned, but come of themselves” (Katherine Anne Porter).
Any of the above definitions qualifies as miracle. It doesn’t have to happen on Monday – just be shared on a Monday.
I think often miracles happen as unexpected acts of kindness from others.
One miracle story often shared is that of something sorely needed being provided out of the blue. After cyclone Yasi we had many miracle events. It was a humbling experience to have things provided spontaneously by people all across Australia.
One of the most precious was the bedding that appeared on our front door step at the new house we were temporarily moving into. I still don’t know who put it there. We had our mattresses but no sheets or pillow slips organised. They were somewhere in suitcases under a huge mess and were damp and in need of a wash.
Low and behold the ones on the door step enabled us to go to sleep early and not have to search for sheets probably in need of a wash or even a throw out.
It was small miracle, but a sweet one, unasked for, but given by some kind souls.
