Do you believe in miracles?
What does the word miracle mean to you? Maybe you do not believe in divine power, so you do not believe in miracles. But if we open the idea of miracles to mean wonders, marvels, surprises, and curiosities, we start to notice small miracles everywhere.
Walt Whitman said that for him, “every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle”. Just as “beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” a miracle is in the heart of the believer. When we believe in miracles, life gains another layer of meaning.
By nature, children have great imaginations and a willingness to believe in the miraculous. Teach children to pay attention to the wonders of the world, and don’t let age dampen your enthusiasm. Together, you can explore the miracles all around you.
