Open your heart to miracles.
Not rabbits in hats,
Scarves up a practiced sleeve,
Or a quarter from your ear,
But God’s transforming touch,
Amazing grace that surprises lives
Connecting people because of who they are
And in spite of who they are.
Spirit whose breath stirs us
Into beauty and compassion.
Open your heart to miracles
That manifest in 100,000 ways:
A memory-filled, fractured relationship – mended,
Unexpected smiling face at an open door,
Sharing that offers food enough for everyone.
No competition this.
No my miracle is better than yours
Or my encounter of the Holy outshines yours.
It is in the sharing of our daily lives
And the sharing of our experiences with the Divine
That love is multiplied,
Our lives enriched beyond price.
Take care, remembering that extravagant, often sacrificial sharing
Is nothing shy of miraculous.
