543. Miracles do not, in fact, break the laws of nature. ~C.S. Lewis

Miracles, the sense of phenomena
we cannot explain,
surround us on every hand:
life itself is the miracle of miracles.
~George Bernard Shaw

WHY! who makes much of a miracle?
As to me, I know of nothing else but miracles,
Whether I walk the streets of Manhattan,
Or dart my sight over the roofs of houses toward the sky,
Or wade with naked feet along the beach, just in the edge of the
 water,
Or stand under trees in the woods,
Or talk by day with any one I love
Or sit at table at dinner with the rest,
Or look at strangers opposite me riding in the car,
Or watch honey-bees busy around the hive, of a summer forenoon,
Or animals feeding in the fields,
Or birds–or the wonderfulness of insects in the air,
Or the wonderfulness of the sun-down–or of stars shining so quiet
and bright,
Or the exquisite, delicate, thin curve of the new moon in spring;
These, with the rest, one and all, are to me miracles,
The whole referring–yet each distinct, and in its place.
To me, every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the 
same,
Every foot of the interior swarms with the same;
Every spear of grass–the frames, limbs, organs, of men and women,
and all that concerns them,
All these to me are unspeakably perfect miracles.
To me the sea is a continual miracle;
The fishes that swim–the rocks–the motion of the waves–the ships,
with men in them,
What stranger miracles are there?
~Excerpts from Miracles
by Walt Whitman

He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. ~Job 5:9   ✝

On November 9th, 2012, after two clots in my brain threatened my life, You, Lord Jesus, held me in Your precious hands and restored my health and wholeness. I praise and thank You, now and always.  Help me to stay under the mighty wings of Your grace and holiness!

  1. Yes, miracles are… natural! I was so touched by your prayer dear Natalie! I’m sure the Lord listen to each of your prayers. I feel that you’re anxious about your health and this surgery. You know, if you made a decision. It means you trust the Lord. Everything will be fine, I’m sure!
    And Walt Whitman… what a genius! Take care dear Natalie, have a nice weeks and many giants hugs 🙂 ♥♥♥♥

  2. It is also a miracle that I am still here – I nearly died twice due to allergic reactions to penicillin and anaesthetic agents. I was meant to live for my children. So I appreciate everything that much more. 😀

  3. Happy anniversary of a miracle of miracles—and I give thanks as well on this anniversary of your “new” life, as had you not been here, to create this delightful respite, I never would have found a new dear friend who has and continues to richly bless my own life–
    much love dear Natalie and happy anniversary 🙂

    • Thank you, Roberta. I loved your post and am so honored to be one of the people of which you spoke. I’ve never wanted to be defined by what comes or has come against me. God is too good for that and He deserves our praise by wearing our seasons well! I’m so glad that my life was spared two years ago so that I could me so many lovely people through my blogs. I pray you have a great week! Hugs, N ❤

  4. Wonderful Natalie. And yes, miracles are everywhere, especially in the simplest of things. What an awesome miracle God did in your life, and an amazing testimony to His great power N. And it wasn’t even too hard for him to do.
    🙂
