seeing the miraculous...

I have been thinking quite a bit the past few days about miracles... how they are more commonplace than we think--if we but have eyes to see...

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush
afire with God;
But only he who sees
takes off his shoes.
The rest sit round it
and pluck blackberries.
~Elizabeth Barrett Browning
God, we ask that You would mold us into those who would see Your presence and take off our shoes...


  1. I love the Browning quote. It's one of my faves. Makes me want to kick off my shoes and dig my toes into the holy ground in my own backyard.

    And miracles ... Yes. Our God is a God of miracles -- present tense.


I'm so glad you've stopped by! I love hearing from you and can't wait to read your comments! Let me know what's on your mind and your heart today...
