    Believe In Miracles

    My older sister Mary at a young age in 1996 was blind in one eye after having a stroke. She was told by doctors throughout the years her sight would never return. This last eye doctor she has been to, test showed that there was something behind both of her eyes. Doctor wasn't sure what it was. He told Mary she would need surgery, one eye at a time.

    She and I talked about her eye surgery and we believe her sight would return once she had the operation. She was somewhat afraid to go through the operation and happy at the same time maybe about getting her sight back.

    On her next visit she asked the doctor if she would be able to see again after the surgery. Doctor assured her she had lost that eye completely to the stroke and would never see again. The doctor explained he was going to operate on her blind eye first, to find out what was there. He said he didn't want to mess with her good eye in case something went wrong. Didn't want to mess with her sight in that eye.

    Mary had her eye operation yesterday morning and she was there at the hospital nearly all day till late evening. I tried calling her over and over the night before her operation to encourage her not to be afraid and everything would be alright, but her phone was out due to the bad weather. I pray for her most of the night and all day yesterday.

    Mary phoned me after she got home late in the evening to let me know the operation was over and she didn't feel any pain durning the surgery. She was told to keep the patch over her eye to keep out the light. Mary said she felt the urge to remove the patch just a bit and so she did. Pulling the blanket over her head as not to let light in and she slowly peeled back the tape holding the patch. She was so surprise she could see everything. She was so happy she could see everything and didn't know how to react, she felt like she wanted to shout , jump and cry all at the same time. She didn't cry, was afraid tears might do damage to her eye so she didn't. I think I cried enough tears of joy for us both. 

    Mary was upset she didn't get to talk with me the night before because her phone was out. She said she was praying all the way to the hospital. Praying The Our Father over and over again. This is a miracle and God has answered our prayers. Though the doctor didn't believe Mary would ever gain her sight back, we never did give up believing one day it would.  Thanks be to God

    Things Aren't What They Seem

    Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family. The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion's guest room. Instead the angels were given a small space in the cold basement. As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it. When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied, "Things aren't always what they seem."

    The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor, but very hospitable farmer and his wife. After sharing what little food they had the couple let the angels sleep in their bed where they could have a good night's rest. When the sun came up the next morning the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears. Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole income, lay dead in the field.

    The younger angel was infuriated and asked the older angel: "How could you have let this happen? The first man had everything, yet you helped him", she accused. "The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you let the cow die."

    "Things aren't always what they seem," the older angel replied. "When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall. Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the wall so he wouldn't find it."

    "Then last night as we slept in the farmer's bed, the angel of death came for his wife. I gave him the cow instead. Things aren't always what they seem."

    Finding Refuge "Wings"

            This is a true story that happen a few years ago and

             I would like to share it. After a forest fire in Yellowstone

            National Park, forest rangers began their trek up a

            mountain to assess the inferno's damage.


            One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes,

            perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a

            tree. Somewhat sickened by the errie sight, he knocked

            over the bird with a stick. When he struck it three tiny

            chicks scurried from under their dead mother's wings.


            The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster,

            had carried her offspring to the base of a tree and had

            gathered them under her wings. Instinctiverly knowing

            that the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown

            to safety but had refuse to abandon her babies. When

            the blaze had arrived and the heat has scorched her

            small body the mother had remained steadfast. Because

            she had been willing to die so those under her wings

            would live.


            He will cover you with his feathers, and under his

            wings you will find refuge.

                                                                              Psalm 91:4
