A Hundred Million Miracles

A Hundred Million Miracles -- Just on this one Tree!

A Hundred Million Miracles — Just on this one Tree!

“A HUNDRED-MILLION MIRACLES
A HUNDRED-MILLION MIRACLES
A HUNDRED-MILLION MIRACLES
ARE HAPPENING EVERY DAY”
— Flower Drum Song, Rodgers & Hammerstein

Are you counting?
I think we’ve reached 95 Million and it’s barely Lunchtime!
Lunch — Another Miracle!
Time — Another Miracle!
Reaching — Another Miracle!

Remember those 15-year old seeds I planted last Spring? https://livethequestionsnow.com/2015/05/16/plant/ Look what came back again this year, all by itself!

It’s just a random Saturday Afternoon in April.
It’s World Voice Day (Did you know that?)
What’s Your Voice? Maybe Celebrate by spending some time Finding It Today!
It’s the Christian Feast Day of Fructuosus of Braga
Memorial Day for Victims of the Holocaust in Hungary
It’s the Birthday of MICHAEL GILL, KELLI O’HARA, and DUSTY SPRINGFIELD
And perhaps the Birthday of some of your Friends on FaceBook…
It’s the Half-Birthday of KEVIN STITES, JULIO AUGUSTIN, JEFF MCCARTHY and DONNA LYNN HILTON,
And perhaps the Half-Birthday of some of your Friends on FaceBook…
Just a random Day of a Hundred Million Miracles
And a Hundred Million Reasons to Celebrate!
Feeling Blue?
Why not go for a Walk and see how many Miracles you can count.
(And include Walking!)

When I was in High School, a Favorite Teacher gave me a Holy Card —
we had those back then, instead of apps —
I guess they were kind of the apps of the day if you went to Catholic High School.
This one said,
“I am Grateful for the Life that comes — not as a whole, but in Little Pieces called People.”
I never forgot that.

Let’s Be Grateful!
Be Grateful for the Life that Comes.
For the Plants that Grow.
For the Sky
For the Earth
For the Water
For the People
For the Hundred Million Miracles!
DeathLife
There is Death. There is also LIFE.
There is Sadness. There is also JOY.
There is Loneliness. There is also the Gift of SOLITUDE.
There is the Cacophony of the Crowd. There is also the Gift of FRIENDSHIP.

Let us have GRATITUDE for all the many Gifts —
Those parts of Life we understand as Gifts
And those whose Value we are not yet enlightened enough to See.
FriendShip
A Hundred Million Miracles.
Let’s Count!

  1. And it truly is EVERY day that we witness a hundred million miracles. On my walk today I watched an owlet high in a fir tree, ospreys building nests on building cranes, marmots playing in a pile of dirt. And THAT was just the beginning!
