Small Miracles Blog Hop - Celebrating Hope



Franchesca wrote that sometimes Heaven seems so distant. I have struggled with this for years.

But lately...

I find that the biggest miracles come from the smallest things.

I find them in the intricate beauty of the tiniest flower.

I find them in the sound of the beautiful birds singing to each other each morning at the park across the road from my house.

I find them in the laughter of my daughters, usually as I am trying to get some desperately needed sleep, I always end up attending festival of laughter with the head lining acts being my two youngest tinkerbells.


But mostly, I find the biggest miracles in the sounds and sparkles of the ocean at sunset each night. I feel the most pure energy consume my body as I step barefoot into the sand of that gorgeous beach. My worries are gone. Everything is perfect just for that little time when day transitions into night.

I imagine it to be an amazing experience to be able to see the ocean every day and dig your toes in the sand and experience a little bit of Heaven on earth.

I think the everyday stuff holds the sweetest miracles. Your visits to the ocean seem like such an extraordinary gift of of beauty, though...certainly not everyday to me!
