Christmas all about miracles

Christmas is all about miracles – about the unexpected showing up in the middle of the ordinary. Angelic proclamations, a virgin birth, heavenly hosts and a bright shining star beckoning wise men from afar. For doubters and dissenters, for skeptics and cynics, the ability to embrace the miraculous eludes, but even the most ardent believers need a reminder now and again. Snow falls as I write, and the white-shrouded world reminds me of another December, 16 years ago, when I received my own much-needed reminder/Cindy Hval, SR Front Porch. More here.

Question: Do you see the miraculous in your life?
