Sunday Dinner: Small Miracles

~

“Miracles are a retelling in small letters
of the very same story
which is written across the whole world
in letters too large
for some of us to see.”
.
C.S. Lewis

“People usually consider walking on water
or in thin air a miracle.
But I think the real miracle
is not to walk either on water or in thin air,
but to walk on earth.
Every day we are engaged in a miracle
which we don’t even recognize:
a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves,
the black, curious eyes of a child—
our own two eyes.
All is a miracle.”

.
Thich Nhat Hanh

“There are days when I think I don’t believe anymore.
When I think I’ve grown too old for miracles.
And that’s right when another seems to happen.”
.
Dana Reinhardt

I expect miracles.”

  1. Beautiful quotes and photos. Spring is a miracle and it’s a joy to see it blooming in your garden. Blessings!

    • Blessings to you, Sarah. Thank you. It always feels miraculous to see a bud pop from a woody stem, and soon unfold into a flower or new leaf.

      I was thinking of you as I snipped Hellebores for the bowl, hoping you would see Friday’s post. I hope that your own garden is happily filling with Hellebores this spring ❤ ❤ ❤

  2. Your shrubs are blooming! Enjoy a sniff for me. 🙂
