Small Miracles

What an interesting world we live in.

While outside doing yard work, I came upon a most surprising discovery. Tangled up with and hanging from some pine tree limbs, there hung grapes! A grape vine found its way into my yard! I have grapes growing that I did not plant or cultivate! How astounding!

Almost as surprising was the beautiful flower that sprouted up in a patch of soil in an unattended flower pot on my deck. How spectacular!

These are magical, miraculous moments that many people miss or fail to appreciate. Too busy to stop and smell the roses, or grapes as the case may be.

-When was the last time you felt wonder?

-When was the last time you felt awed?

We watch TV shows and movies to show us new places, other people’s lives, and with special effects and CGI we get to see places and things that don’t exist on our planet.

But we all have wonder, beauty, perfection, and abundance available in our own lives if we only we become aware, present in the moment and take some time to appreciate it. Gratitude inspires wonder!

-Go outside at lunch time or after work; to a park or any place where you can see nature. Be grateful to mother earth for everything you see and much of what you hear.

-Look up as you are driving and appreciate the sun and sky. Be grateful to the sun, or the rain, for all it creates and provides.

-Appreciate the perfect cup of coffee or tea (plus the person who made it for you, the farmers who planted and harvested for you.

-Bathe in the light of the full moon.

-Breathe deeply of the next rainstorm.

– Watch a spider spin its web or a bird building its nest.

-Create your own magic garden by leaving a pot filled with soil outside and see how quickly something will sprout. It’s like a surprise gift from the universe!

There is so much to be grateful for and so many moments that remind us of all there is to be grateful for. Notice them. Be present for them. Be present for you!

May you perceive and receive all your blessings.

With Much Love,

Rev. Michele

If you were wondering if they are edible grapes, I don’t know yet. I couldn’t find confirmation on the web. So, yesterday and once last week, I cut one open. It smelled like a grape but it was very sour.  They started off green and now are purple, so maybe they’re not ripe yet, although, some are shriveling on the vine.
