The Best Kinds of Miracles




"I know a lot of you folks have come out to the farm and you've seen the words, and a lot of you have asked me, 'how could this have happened?'. I don't know, but it has happened... at a time when we really don't see many miraculous things. Maybe we do. Maybe they're all right there around us everyday, we just don't know where to look."
-Homer Zuckerman





What sorts of Ordinary Miracles have you found this week?

Today's post is dedicated to the miracle that is Annika.

How lovely. And miracles... yes, everyday, and we often forget to look.

Wow! What a wonderful capture. I am not a fan of spiders, but their webs are magnificent!

Here is my BSM

That is a fantastic capture of the web. Amazing that such an extraordinary talent comes from something that totally creeps us out!

What a gorgeous photo.

I'll second what Kara said... spider webs are so beautiful, how come spiders are so ugly? :)

Mine is not so much about a miracle as it is about courage:

One of my favorite songs - and favorite finds lately outside, too! It is the ordinary miracles that make life so very lovely.

Golightly said...

That is awesome! Miracle indeed.

You see, I really need a macro lens (or some equivalent) because we get those gorgeous webs (made by the big ugly seasonal spiders) I took a picture but it didn't come out too well.

Here's my best shot(s) this week.

Anna said...

They do indeed happen all around us. Between Sarah's lovely voice and your post I have goosebumps, Tracey!

My BSM is here.

Gorgeous fall weather, good food and cupcakes are ordinary miracles, yes?

Phyllis Sommer said...

Maggie said...

Everyday miracles are the best parts of the day.

My BSM is a bit of the everyday...

My Best Shot

What a great reminder.

My BSM was a bit of a miracle in that I had 2 kids under 2 sitting quietly and playing together off on their own under a tree while all the older siblings played frisbee and whiffle ball around them. It was so fun to watch the toddlers "communicate" and laugh at each other's "jokes" and faces and to watch them share their snack.

U never want to get that close to the webs.
No miracles today- just life.

Donna Blessed Nest said...

yes they are all around us. I went to the farm (really)found beauty in the ordinary yet extraordinarily simple things.

Killlashandra said...

Life is full of ordinary miracles, you just have to look and recognize them for what they are. :) A lot of times I think they are missed because people don't slow down enough to see them.

Here's my best shot, not quite a miracle but a pretty something I've always wondered what they looked like up close.

That photo is beautiful and mesmerizing. And that says a lot coming from an anachrophobe.

Gypsy Alex said...

yesterday i took a detour to work and wandered off to a road where 2 bambi deers were playing. i stopped and talked to them and they didn't run off. they actually kept starring at me as if they wanted to chat back. it was so sweet. this never happens, so it was a miracle boost for me! xxox

Miracle here? My son who lives with FAS and has no impulse control and runs away when he knows nothing else to do...was found and returned home safely tonight.

And I pray for continued miracles. Because one day...he may run farther.

And thank you for reminding me to check on A...and how much I adore Charlotte's Web.

Ok, I totally spaced and didn't think this was the BSM post. Long weekend. =)
