The Bounty of God



"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." ~Albert Einstein




 



Perhaps the gravest, and yet greatest gift God gives us in this life is the ability to decide for ourselves what we will believe, and what path we will choose from the vision set before us.  We all one by one, could step into a Cathedral and peer through the beautiful stained glass windows, and each one see something a bit different.  Some choose the obvious, and clear science of logic, and then go about their way, while others look deeper, into the glass, and into the human heart, not just seeing a mother and child etched upon the glass, but they see a miracle etched upon humanity.  The wonder of the many gifts of God.  Is it a miracle, or is it the science of art? 
I choose the miracle!



I hope everyone at Magpie Tales and everywhere in the blogosphere has a wonderful Christmas Holiday, no matter what your set beliefs are....it is a season of miracles....the spirit of giving is a beautiful thing!

  18. Miracles, like freedom, madness,
    liberty, truth, love--it's all out there
    waiting to embrace us if we open
    our arms and hearts to it.
    This lovely poem of yours hits
    the mark gently, like being
    hugged with dove's feathers.
