Miracles Abound

Sometimes the monotony of daily life
clouds our vision
and we resign ourselves to the belief
that we are stuck and alone.

Let the stars up in the night sky
remind me that
I am not alone and
in this powerful and uncharted universe
miracles happen every day.


I look to the universe and accept there is more to life than I can ever know.
Thank you for the daily miracles of our existence.

The miraculous is accessible almost any time — whether it is the universe, the natural world, human history, or the intricacies of our bodies. Explore the miraculous from time to time as a reminder that so much is unseen, unknown, and very possible.
