Is there such a thing as a common miracle? Of course. These are the things that happen naturally, and we tend to never give them a second thought. But I try very hard to praise God for all things.
So, you can count yourself lucky if you find a parking spot right near the door when you’ve got a doctor’s appointment and 3 children in tow. You can smile when the forecasted storm blows over on the day you planned to go to an amusement park. You can sigh in relief when your toddler gets distracted instead of rushing head-long into traffic.
And when your tiny baby is diagnosed with a miniscule hole in his heart that will most likely close and even if it doesn’t will only require antibiotics before dental work…and when you take this baby 6 months later back to the cardiologist for a follow-up appointment and he declares that the hole has in fact disappeared, you could just smile and think it’s great and then get back to your everyday life.
OR…if you’re like me and this happens, you can be nearly reduced to tears that God has been so kind and gracious as to permit you peace of mind and a healthy baby. Thank you, God, for my many blessings and especially for closing the hole in Peter Damian’s heart. Amen!
