It’s A Miracle

This morning as I was waking up, the sun was creeping through the blinds on my windows and light was coming from the hallway. I was looking at everything around me. So many amazing things. Technology, talent to make beautiful things, and knowledge to make intricate things. If we were just a random happening evolving from nothing, just dust. Then how could we think and reason and accomplish such amazing things? Why are we different from other animals? Wouldn’t we be struggling just to get by. I remember thinking about cavemen when I was little. I thought how silly it sounded. I looked at the photographs of my children and grandkids all around. My computer, my power wheelchair and every piece of technology in my room. Then I glanced at a painting on my wall. One day when I was shopping for furniture, it called to me from the wall in the store. I stared at it for a long time. I was looking at my childhood in complete detail. When I was a little girl my daddy took me up with his friend in an airplane. I loved it. It’s all I thought of for years after that. I grew up next door to two boys that I played with. It was a picture of three kids building a pretend airplane. We often would build things from all the scrap junk left lying around. That picture had every detail correctly. Even the Fanta orange soda my friends always drank. What are the odds that someone I didn’t know would paint that picture? And that I would happen upon it while trying to find a desk. Just about that time I looked outside and yes it was another absolutely beautiful sunny day. How can that just happen? Back to the photos. I am loved by every one of those people. They give my life so much meaning.. Feelings and emotions. Where did they come from if there is no meaning to life? Random chance is a bigger miracle than anything I was raised to believe. I see great miracles every day because I know the God of miracles, but without him it would take a miracle for anything to make sense or have meaning.
