I would like to share with you a miracle from my own life today.
We spent this past weekend at the beach. On Thursday morning, as I was playing in the water with my husband and my kids, I prayed to God that he keep us all safe. I love the ocean, but it also scares me.
It wasn't long after I prayed, that Sarah started complaining that her bottom hurt her. I decided to take her back to the beach house,which was across the street, so we could rinse the sand out of her bathing suit.
Apparently, right after I left, a large clear colored crab came up to my son who was playing in the sand beside our chair and beach towels. This crab scared my son and the fact that it was clear made him think it was a ghost. (Too much Scooby Doo and Ben 10 will give a 5 year old an overactive imagination.)
He started screaming about the crab so my husband came running over to him. While my husband was removing the crab from our towel, Peter started running away from the beach. My husband yelled at Peter to stop but he didn't listen. He kept running away from the beach and toward the street.
He ran right into the street, completely crossed it and ran to the beach house looking for me.
God was looking out for my son because they were no cars coming on this normally busy street and he crossed without incident.
Every time I think about what might have happened, I thank God again for keeping him safe.
Every day is filled with little miracles. Take the time to look for them. What you might normally brush off as luck or coincidence is probably a miracle. Just open your heart and you will see miracles all around you. I am challenging myself to do this and I hope you will as well.
