Miracles DO Happen!

Whether it's historical events, or historical events based on religious beliefs, we can all come up with some "miracles" that have happened. But the last couple of days is proof that miracles still do happen, although I'm a little weirded out.


1. The miracle Hudson River landing of US Air Flight 1549 on Thursday. A miraculous event in of itself. So many factors pointed to disaster that made this miracle a rare possibility, if not impossible! It's clear that not only was an amazing pilot at the controls, but another one that was truly in charge, even though sometimes we forget about Him as we go about our day in such a crazy, crowded and distracting world. :-)

2. The Arizona Cardinals making it to the Super Bowl. Seriously?! If anyone a couple of weeks ago, told me this was going to happen, I would have laughed in their face and said, "good one!".

3. It's pretty miraculous in of itself that I even mention the Cardinals (or football in general) on my blog. Euw. Football. If it was wiped off the face of the earth tomorrow, I would totally be okay with it. Therefore, it's safe to say that I'm not a "bandwagon" Cardinals fan by any stretch of the imagination. But I am noticing the miraculous event regarding the Cardinals and Flight 1549. As a result, Twilight Zone music is running through my head.

4. And while this isn't a "miracle" in the sense that the first two are, these miraculous events have occurred just days before we are going to inaugurate our first black President. I'm not going to get into any political tirades on here, because my friends and family come from a wide spectrum of political ideals and beliefs. But no matter where you stand politically, you have to admit this is pretty amazing. Especially when only 50 years ago, we still had segregated schools and horrible racism (moreso in the South, but it existed everywhere, and unfortunately still does).

The Civil Rights Act was signed just in 1964 - 43 years ago. And here we are inaugerating our first black President. (but I won't hide one thing. I did vote for him. I knew I was going to pretty early on in the election process. I had some leaning towards John Edwards too, but we know what happened there! lol But that's the only thing I'm going to say about votes and certain candidates. My blog is to be fun, not create unnecessary squabbling).


  1. The plane crash was amazing. I think you're right about how miraculous it was.

    And the Arizona Cardinals going to the Super Bowl is just plain crazy! I mean, I think they didn't even win one game the three years I lived down there, LOL!

  2. This has definitely been a memorable week! I am really looking forward to the inauguration ceremonies today.
