THE WORKING MAN'S MIRACLE

Cody Williams

A miracle is a shift in thinking, a shift from fear to love.
At first glance, that sounds a bit ridiculous. How does shifting a thought cause a miraculous change?
And yet it does exactly that. For every thought we think creates form on some level. A simple thought seemingly trivial or even unimportant carries within it the power to move mountains. And that is the least it can do. There is no worldly power--no money, no technology, no business or government-- that can match in power the power we wield by simply using our minds for the purposes of love. Marianne Williamson
I have been looking for miracles lately. I imagine those "biblical" ones, where something "wonderful" happens to make everything right.
I told this to my husband the other day, and he said something profound. What about those small blessings, the every day, run of the mill blessings? Inviting our friend Kevin over for Family Home Evening. Or when your Visiting Teacher came to visit, and listened to you ramble for an hour and a half. I thought about that and I realized that miracles and blessings are progressive. They are steady, and if we can put away the "stuff" that precludes us from watchful observation, we will be blessed.
