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

Today, a friend recounted the various unexpected wonderful things that happened to her as she and her family struggled through a particularly hard time this summer.  I cried as I read her blog post.  Sometimes, people respond in certain ways and the world just seems to momentarily focus on one’s immediate needs that I cannot help but see God’s grace through it all.  On an international level, a similar thing is happening with Haiti.  Thousands of people who may have never given much thought to Haiti have gone to efforts great and small to bring hope and relief to the tiny nation, and what most don’t realize is that someone will probably consider the gift a miracle, a provision sent when it is needed the most and yet unexpected to arrive…   Situations like these restore my faith and hope in humanity:  That, despite wars of the spirit and wars of the world, when it comes down to it – faith, hope and LOVE are still the greatest gifts and people are still giving.
