My tiny miracle...

"They were all astounded and glorified God, saying, 'We have never seen anything like this.'"
Mark 2:12

It was such a tiny miracle. Some may not even consider it a miracle--certainly it was nothing as grand and great as Jesus healing the paralytic in this gospel today! But, to me, it was God reaching right into my mind and lending me a helping hand. We are shuffling vehicles around since Sam's truck wasn't working right. After hers was fixed, mine went into the shop and I am driving her trucklette around (and trying to remember how to drive a stick! Maybe that is my miracle?) I noticed the first time I drove it the driver door needed a good slam to get it to shut all the way. I filed that little bit of knowledge deep into my brain. As I snuggled into bed one night, I suddenly remembered the truck door. The truck was in the garage, I reasoned to myself, I would have noticed the dome light on if the door wasn't shut. I tried really hard to talk myself out of going downstairs and checking it. But I did check it and, sure enough, the door wasn't shut, the dome light was on, the battery would have been dead by morning. The minute I realized that, I knew that God was active in my mind. In fact, God pushed me out of bed to check the light! Avoiding the inevitable hassle the next morning was, indeed, a miracle to me! We have many miracles in our day, Friends! Let's keep our eyes open to them and appreciate them the minute they happen! And may you enjoy many miracles this weekend! Love, heidi
