Sometimes we witness a miracle, a wonder, and overlook the meaning/purpose/impact that the experience can have on our lives. I think folks think of a miracle as a tremendous, jaw dropping event. To appreciate these special moments in my life, I have changed my perception of what a miracle is.
An encounter I experienced this week at the Homeless Center was about a young man who I’ve seen many times. I’m an interviewer, asking what services they need that day and I feel I’m a sounding board acknowledging their story, plans, and goals. The young man, who I have seen many times, shared that he had been sober for 14 days and that he was being admitted into a 90-day rehab program in a couple of weeks. I consider this a miracle, so, I congratulated him, gave him a hug, and wished him well.
A while back, one of John’s cousin’s made a statement that made me ponder for a moment, and recognize that what happened in my life was indeed a miracle. The conversation was about divorces in our world today. The cousin said, “It’s a miracle that you and John didn’t divorce with all you have been through”. I had to agree.
