Miracle Monday (The What? I Thought She Stopped Doing That Edition.)

It's Monday and I come to you today with my head hanging down a little and my hands shoved in my pockets.

It's been four weeks since my last Miracle Monday post And for the last 4 weeks prior to that, no one has even posted a miracle.

Every week I was trying to find something to write about so that even if no one else posted a miracle at least there would be something to read...something miraculous...something that would make at least one person's skin tingle and make them shout "Amen!" or "Praise the Lord!" or "Hallelujah!"

But I've been in a funk this summer. I started to dread Mondays. It was getting harder and harder to find miracles to write about. And I just didn't feel like spending a lot of time looking for them either. Nothing came to me for four weeks so I decided to let Miracle Monday fade quietly away.

And every Monday I felt a little tinge of guilt.

And then Liz from These Are The Days stopped by my blog and started looking through the archives and left a comment about Miracle Monday and she seemed excited about it.

Someone was excited about Miracle Monday? That hadn't happened in a while.

And then I felt even worse for letting it die a slow death. So my guilt has gotten the better of me and I have decided to open it back up.

So, if anyone has a miracle, big or small, please post it.

And in the meantime, please visit Tracie Miles' blog for lots of inspiration. She is a wonderful writer. This post made my skin tingle and made me shout "hallelujah!" Hopefully it will do the same for you.

If you want to participate in Miracle Monday, it's easy. Just write a post about a miracle and link it back here using Mr. Linky. I've even dusted off the Miracle Monday button. Feel free to copy and paste it in your post and make sure you mention my blog.

Ugh...sooo sorry I wasn't able to participate today! My friend just experienced such an incredible miracle, and a true testament to her faith..I wanted to write about it, but had to get her permission, first...couldn't get hold of her today. I will chat with her this week, and be working on the post for NEXT WEEK'S "Miracle Moday". :)

I'm guilty of not posting on Miracle Monday as well as other Christian memes lately. I'll be back next Monday, there are miracles every day. You just have to recognize them! And tell them.
