P1030882I saw it on my stroll after lunch–a white tulip, looking more elegant than all the others. It stood tall and unbending, flaunting its yellow center.

Nothing quite makes me feel I’m witnessing a miracle like flowers. Those spindly green shoots that push slowly out of spring mud make us wait to see their beauty.  Then suddenly (especially if we are distracted by daily frenzy) they surround us with rainbows of color, shapes, and the finest fragrance possible.

Ordinary days are flooded with miracles for those who are attentive—sunrise, wind in pines, children at play, unexpected contact with a friend.  Albert Einstein said, “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 are the miracles in your life today, right in front of your eyes?  Tell us!
