If we didn’t see the miracle, does that mean it didn’t happen?
If something occurs so often that we fail to even notice,
can it not still be miraculous?
We say what a miracle life is when we witness a birth,
but the miracle of life occurs each time we breathe,
each time there is thought,
each time a heart beats,
each time love brings someone to tears,
each time a tiny cut heals
or a broken bone mends,
each time a bird flies
or a spring peeper rejoices so loudly,
and each time a firefly lights.
Yes, life is the miracle love brings forth
each moment, in innumerable ways.
Thank you, oh loving God, for the miracle of this day.
Thank you for enabling us to awaken this day,
to breathe, to see, to hear, think, and feel.
Thank you for inviting us to share life and love,
the ultimate miracle, with you!
