On my great train ride across this country I was reminded of her majesty, diversity and people. A long journey full of stops and encounters that was food for my soul as I sought out a small miracle from God. 6,000 miles by railway and car I traveled praying for yet another intervention from a God who owes me nothing but has given me everything. In my pursuit of yet another favor, a side deal with God to help save the day I was reminded that some miracles are only possible when we initiate change.
As I looked out that window with plenty of time to reflect, I came to understand what I needed to do to help create the miracle that I sought. I realized that I needed to soften my heart to things not understood. It has been a difficult year for me and my family and that inner voice reminded me that all my prayers during that time was either a request to change other people or assistance in helping me deal with the challenges that life threw my way. Not one single time did I require anything of me.
I got it God! As I sit here on Easter Day, I am still amazed at how your unwavering love comes to me in ways least expected but at times when it is so desperately needed. So amazing is the grace of thee.
