Pulling up behind a car at a stoplight one day, the bumper sticker of the car ahead caught my eye.... it said :
My immediate reaction was “Oh wow! What a great message!!!”
The friend with whom I was driving just muttered “Yeah... right...” I am quite sure if something EXTRA-ordinary were to have occurred as we waiting for the light to turn — a person stepping out of that car and starting to fly around perhaps? — she would have been impressed with the “miracle” ... but clearly, she wasn’t expecting any to happen.
That made me think of a great C.S. Lewis quote: “Miracles are a re-telling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too LARGE for some of us to see ...”
It’s a matter of perspective. A ho-hum approach to daily living will rarely produce an experience of the miraculous — BUT — seeing each day through the lens of wonder and awe and GRATITUDE — can produce the opposite result.
In short, if you EXPECT miracles — as experiences of the “extraordinary within the ordinary” — you start seeing them everywhere ... You just have to put on the right glasses! 🤓
