“There is no limit to the miracles we can experience in life. The fact is we have gotten so used to miracles that it takes amazing spectacles of universal movement to impress us. What I mean, for example, is that each breath we take is an unexplainable miracle of unimaginable significance. Medicine and science may be able to observe, describe, and even affect to some degree, the physical activity that accompanies the process of respiration; but we may never know, however, how or why that particular miracle occurs.
Childbirth, trees, and where art and music come from, are just a few of the everyday miracles we simply cannot explain. But we take these things for granted, or simply ignore them, because we don’t understand them. We integrate these things into our lives without fully appreciating their significance. Then, we expect “real” miracles to be performed on command before we accept the existence of a higher power – or before we truly believe in one. The adage, “If you can’t take care of what you have, what makes you think you need more?” comes to mind. If we can’t even acknowledge the miracles that surround us in plain sight, what makes us think we’d recognize a miracle in an unfamiliar setting, or scenario?”
