Ordinary Miracles

As much as I live in miracle-consciousness, there are times during which I develop ‘spiritual amnesia’ and forget how extraordinary life is.  At this moment of writing the entry you are reading, I am experiencing too many to count.  I will share a few of them, a full sensory array….in fleece pj’s under flannel sheets and comforter in my toasty room, while gazing out the window at the brrrrr brisk snow covered yard.  As I peruse the walls, I see color and light, whimsy and wonder; books that reflect my varied interests, photos, prints, colorful scarves, vision boards I have created to dance my dreams to life.  Sipping tea to ease into the day.  Listening to Sarah Maclachlan singing Ordinary Miracle.




It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when it’s time to snow
Don’t need to teach a seed to grow
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift, they say
Wrapped up for you everyday
Open up, and find a way
To give some of your own

Isn’t it remarkable?
Like everytime a raindrop falls
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

The birds in winter have their fling
And always make it home by spring
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today


When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
‘Cause we are all a part

Of the ordinary miracle

Ordinary miracle

Do you want to see a miracle

It seems so exceptional
That things work out after all
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

The sun comes out and shines so bright
And disappears again at night
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today


I know how blessed I am to have friends and family who I call my ‘treasures'; priceless and adored.  I get to do creative work that I love for which I am abundantly compensated. Daily, I connect with amazing people (some through this blog) and have wondrous experiences. I see synchronicity and serendipity everywhere. What I need arrives right on time. I am spreading my wings and taking what I call ’emotional bungee jumping’ risks and always, always, always land on my feet.

I invite you today, to look at your life through miracle eyes…what do you see?

    Thanks for the beautiful reminder! Instead of getting caught up with what’s not going right, how wonderful to keep reminding ourselves what is working perfectly–which, for me anyway, is a vast and glorious list!
    Some things I see right now: Looking out my window there are a group of gorgeous birds (I live in the south), a magnificent pale blue sky, I feel warm and toasty in a home that in prior generations would have been considered a palace, and being able to connect with beautiful people via an amazing technology from the comfort of my own home!
