Miracle Monday - KEEP BELIEVING in miracles.

It's Miracle Monday again so let's get to it!

I know I've written a lot about Brian and Angie but I just can't help myself.

I have often wondered what I would do if I were faced with a situation like theirs.

Would I get mad at God or would I turn to him for help?

Would I push friends and family away or would I look to them for support?

Would I get depressed or would I look for the joy in life?

Would I retreat and hide or would I share it all with the world?

Brian and Angie are doing all the things I hope I would do.

They have put their faith in God but at the same time they are taking help from friends and family.

They are finding joy in simple things like family time, ice hockey games, handstands, new babies and toothless grins.

And through Angie's blog Keep Believing, they are allowing us to see it all - the good days and the hard days.

And through it all, they are still seeing and appreciating the tiny every day miracles of life.

I am asking you today to continue to pray for Brian and Angie and their boys. And if you felt led to do so, please contribute to the fund that has been set up to help support them. (Please see my sidebar on the left).

I am praying for everything that Angie has listed on her sidebar:

For the most beautiful end of days that anyone could possibly experience
For our peace - for Brian's acceptance
For our financial future
For Gavin and Grant - to not fear, to feel normal, to feel at ease and peace. For me to be able to make that happen for them
Renewed emphasis in our spiritual/prayer life

But I am also praying for complete healing for Brian because I believe in miracles and I know that

...nothing is impossible with God. - Luke 1:37

Do you have a miracle or an answered prayer you want to share?

Wow! I'm first! :)

I finsished writing about my mom. Isn't it amazing when people face such difficult trials, like Angie, but they turn to God in total trust, faith, and hope?

Thanks, Beth!

Beth, I wanted to share with you that your comment numbers don't show it, but your readership on Mondays is pretty high based on the hits I get directed from your blog.

And I can tell based on the way you have encouraged me and the way I see you handle your life, you would handle a situation like ours with great character.

Yes, still praying with Angie and Brian. And I completely agree with Angie's comment about you, Beth - in fact I think you already handle your own trials with grace and faith.

Hey Beth -
Thank you for sharing Angie's story on your Miracle Monday posts. I have recently started following her blog, and she is a testament to the philosophy that life is not about what happens TO us, but it is about our ATTITUDE about what happens to us. Love hearing all about Peter and Sarah's antics on your blog! I wish we still lived closer; Hannah would LOVE your Sarah.

I am so impressed by Angie and her family. What beautiful examples of human spirit. I too hope that I would act so positively were I in such a situation.
