Miracles are Like Pimples

Miracles are like pimples.  Once you start looking for them, you’ll find more than you ever dreamed”…is how the children’s holiday book, The Lump of Coal, begins!

The “lump” goes on to say, “It is a miracle if…

  • You can find true friends
  • If you have enough food to eat
  • If you get to spend your days and evenings doing whatever it is you like to do

…and the holiday season is not only a good time to tell stories about miracles, but to think about the miracles in your own life, and to be grateful for them.

I don’t consider everything that happens to me a “miracle”, but I am always blown away when I’m “thinking” of calling a friend – the next minute the phone rings and it’s them!  Or I want to visit a certain city and the opportunity arises for me to travel there (all expenses paid).  Even when something goes wrong – the “miracle” that happens when it turns itself into an opportunity.

You may not consider everything that happens to you as a miracle either.  But, if you have a “miracle mindset”, I think you will amaze yourself as to the number of them that you will experience.

What miracles have happened to you this year that you’d like to share with your family and friends?
