There are miracles to be found in everyday life. Every sunrise, every heartbeat, every smile, every person who forgives another, are all miracles if we only have eyes to see and the childlike disposition to be filled with awe and wonder.' ~Jude Winkler
With all our schools reopening today after the Easter holidays we might be thinking that Easter is well out of the way. It actually lasts 50 days or 7 weeks. The reason for such a lengthy time is to remind us that the promise of Eater with new life, new beginnings, growth and a sense of hope can't be contained into a few days. Everything about Easter takes time to evolve and make progress. You could call them little miracles and they are part and parcel of our everyday lives. But we miss many of them simply because we are too busy or couldn't be bothered. This is such a pity. As nature comes alive at this time of year, we also need to come alive and begin to notice these miracles all around us. You could call them God's gentle presence in our world. Easter gives us maximum opportunity to make the most of them.
