Sunday Dinner: Miraculous


“I have been finding treasures in places I did not want to search.

I have been hearing wisdom from tongues I did not want to listen.

I have been finding beauty where I did not want to look.

And I have learned so much from journeys I did not want to take.

I have learned that miracles are only called miracles

because they are often witnessed by only those

who can can see through all of life’s illusions.

I am ready to see what really exists on other side,

what exists behind the blinds,

and taste all the ugly fruit

instead of all that looks right, plump and ripe.”


Suzy Kassem



“To love someone

is to see a miracle invisible to others.”


François Mauriac




“A miracle is when the whole is greater

than the sum of its parts.

A miracle is when one plus one

equals a thousand.”


Frederick Buechner




“Miracles are not contrary to nature

but only contrary

to what we know about nature.”


St. Augustine



“To live at all is miracle enough.”


Mervyn Peake

“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
