Believe in Miracles

A couple of months ago, after eating at our favorite Chinese restaurant, I got this fortune above - Believe in miracles. I saved it! It sits in my car and I see it every day. I see it when I look at my daughter. She is my miracle and I can't even express in words how thankful I am for this amazing gift. When I look at the little piece of paper with such few words I am reminded of "hope" when I am having a difficult day, of "faith" when I feel a bit lost, and of the "power" of a strong belief in God and the wonders He has bestowed all around me. We are all so blessed to be given this journey on this masterpiece called Earth. It is very easy to let the daily stress and endless responsibilities get us down. We can become rather exhausted and lose sight of all the gifts around us. From the smallest bug to the tallest mountain, the miracles are everywhere!
What is your greatest miracle?
My miracle!

  2. My biggest miracle, just like you, is my daughter. We waited over 5 years to be blessed with a child, and here she is! :)

  3. It's true that life gets tiring when we focus on the wrong things. I love that you were able to find inspiration in a fortune cookie! Every day is a miracle for me... life is short so each day is a blessing!

  4. I would have to say my children are 2 of the many miracles God has bestowed upon me. My oldest was born after 40+ hours of labor and we had to have an emergency C-section. Come to find out the tube was wrapped around his neck 2x. Then my second was born with a collapsed lung. They are both very energetic and healthy boys today. They are truly miracles:) Nice post!

  5. I feel the very same way about my own children. I have never taken them for granted, and feel so blessed with each day I have been given the gift of being their mother!

  6. I'm glad to know people find life to be a gift in itself, the same way we do!

    We should be grateful, and humbled, and in awe every day. We all have something for which to be grateful :-)

  8. Great post Mama Hen. I do believe in miracles and appreciate them but not as much as I'd like to. It's always great to be reminded of that fact that they are everywhere. Hope you and Lil Chick are doing great and she's feeling better.

  12. Your daughter is so cute, I love those photos of you guys together. The best miracle in my life so far is my husband - he is exactly the kind of guy I always prayed to marry and I am really grateful to have him.

  13. There are so many miracles that happen every day around us - my daughter, who we prayed for and were so blessed to have. And more recently my mom, who was really sick with a chronic liver condition. Her odds were 50/50 at best of beating it, but after over a year of chemotherapy, she was cured! Over a year later and she is still happy and healthy and more energetic than ever!

  14. I also believe there are miracles going on all the time that we don't even recognize! I think that the biggest miracle is how lives are transformed by the power of Jesus Christ bringing hope to the hopeless, love and joy to those who've never experienced it before, peace amidst turbulence.

  15. I truly believe that daily life brings little miracles but we often just do not see them :)

  22. I couldn't agree with you more Mama Hen! Life and everything around us are miracles. What an inspirational quote to view every day. It sure does change your perspective on things and makes you focus on all your blessings.

    By the way, thanks for being such a sweet friend. We're doing surprisingly well this week--remembering with happiness in our hearts!

  27. Wow you must have been reading my mind! I am going through the most difficult time that I've ever experienced in my entire life right now & this is what I needed to read. I'm trying my best to put my faith in God & that he will help my family & I get through this tough time, but it's so hard to want to give up when things don't go your way.
