On a dear friend’s blog (a friend from my days of innocence and too much beer and too little sleep), I found this, and I love it:
“So pray not for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you shall be the miracle.” —Phillips Brooks, Episcopal minister, author of O Little Town Of Bethlehem
I am the miracle, YOU are the miracle, the universe is the miracle. Every day is its own microcosm of wonder and glory. In the rush for comfort and security, we have created distractions and diversions, complexities and quandaries, but the truth can really be as simple as this.
