What are some of the small miracles in your life? You know... the stuff a little too good to be a coincidence?
Have you read these books?

I was drove 300 odd miles once, with no problems, as soon as I got home pulled up the driveway it broke down.

The mechanic who checked it out, couldnt work out how i had driven all that way without it breaking down during the journey !!

pretty menial, but i think someone was looking after me that day !

Ok, last November my husband was told he had 18 months to live. One third of his heart was dead.
So, we began to make plans with our wills etc. and doing everything the doctor told him to do. Playing with his meds up and down, this and that.
3 weeks ago he went in for an echocardiogram. We got the word last week that nothing is wrong with his heart, its healing, he actually had a virus in his heart. He still has an irregular heart beat, but they are getting that taken care of.
Talk about a "what the heck" feeling!

A small question Jeff, but I can take a whole week answering this!

simply put, for me, finding GhostVillage community over 4 years ago through google is a miracle, because what it made me into, what it helped me realize and the people in my life, thanks to ghostvillage, is a miracle by itself! :headbang: Everything to me, in one way or the other, came through GhostVillage and the connections I made here.

~Every morning when I wake up & hear my 18 year old say "Mornin' Mom", or when I hear My 2 year old upstairs banging on his crib, or when I hear my 4 year old coming down the stairs...these are my miracles because back in 1976 (I was 6), my doctors told my parents that due to my health issues & the health isuues I was going to have growing up, that me having children was just not going to happen. What I wouldn't give to be able to introduce my children to these doctors! *giggles*

...and ditto to what Moonie stated above.

This is a pretty small thing, but I think back on it fondly. About ten years ago, I was downsized from my job. Since that job had been extremely stressful, I had decided to take the summer off, then start to look for another job in the fall. I began my search in early August that year, and found it difficult to find something that would be a good fit. At some point in early October, I began to pray a novena - to pray for a particular intention for a period of nine days in a row. After this nine days, I went to the local Job Center and did a search on their computer system. I found a posting that piqued my interest, but noticed that the deadline for applications had come and gone a few weeks earlier. I thought, what the heck, nothing ventured, nothing gained. I sent in my resume that day. Two days later, I got a phone call from this place, asking if I could come in the next day for an interview. I said yes. I went in, and had my first 'team interview' - where you meet with several people all at once. Very intimidating, but I managed to get through it. When I got home, for some reason I parked my car on the street in front of the house instead of in the garage. Now keep in mind that this was late October, and we had had several killing frosts. I had two rose bushes in the front garden - and they were in full bloom. Not just a posey or two, but rampant flowers on both large bushes. I was filled with a sense of happiness and calmness. I knew at that time that my prayers had been answered with a yes and I'd get that job. I hardly got in the door when the phone started to ring - with a job offer to start the following Monday.

This may seem trite, or silly, but roses in late October is a rare thing up here where I live.

~Red, that was a marvelous happening...I truly believe that WAS a miracle. Roses are so beautiful, and to have them in full bloom during the "off-season" is a miracle in itself.

Sometimes miracles come in very strange pakages. I credit my near death experience when my head met the pavement after my roofing accident with changing my life for the better. Funny what a little brain damage can do for a girl, but I have never been happier nor more at peace with my life and the direction it is heading.

Before the accident I gave away to much of myself and my life wasn't really my own because of that charactor flaw. Since my accident I had to come to grips with that and make a lot of changes, I no longer had the energy to devote my life to everyone elses wants.

I had a serious injury that allowed me the time I needed to focus on my wants and needs for the first time. It also showed me the people who were really my friends and those who had only been leaching off of me for years.

Two years of re-learning to do things I took for granted (like reading, writing and walking :duel: ) has givin me my life back and made me a much happier person.

The miracle is that the day before it happened I had prayed for a major change to happen in my life...be careful what you wish for :Spaz:

  • Interests:I'm interested in the paranormal. Just not enough to go out and do any investigations. I think my past experiences might have frightened me away from looking for what might come next. I can read what others go threw and it seems exciting. But I just don't have it in me to get up and do any investigations. Pretty silly I know. But it's who I am. I'm a watcher not a doer. That's ok with me, I dont' mind it. I feel safe this way. lol

A miracle for my husband and I.
My husband works at a power plant. He checks all the machines, takes number notes, makes sure everything works properly.
August of 2005, my husband was doing his normal thing. Checking the berrings n such. Making sure things were in good working order. When he walked by a machine, the convayer belt jerked loose, and something sharp on it grabbed his shirt sleeve. It pulled my husband into the machine. He lost half of his right hand. The amazing thing, the machine shut off before it sucked him threw it. He could have died that day in that machine. Nobody know's why it shut off, there was no emergency switch. And nobody else was on that top floor of the building. (about 25 stories up). My husband was able to call for help before he passed out.
He woke up just as people were standing around him. He said he seen someone in white standing in the background. He believes that how the machine got turned off was his angel looking out for him.

We have been down a long hard road because of the accident. I will say, it's given me a new outlook in life. We now refuse to take things for granted. Especially each other.

Many blessings

That my husband and I are graced is a ongoing mircle. It just seems that when we want or need some thing (what ever it may be) it always comes to us timely. No more and no less than what we want or need. Just what we want or need. I feel that if we were the sort to become glutons that this grace would cease. We remain aware and grateful for our abundance.

There is the intuition. That's a constant with my husband and I and with others, and he and others as well, but very apparent between the two of us. I have told the story of the time I cautioned my husband to slow down in concern of a blow out. Within seconds there was a blow out. Had he not slowed down we believe we would have had a serious accident. He often accuses me of stealing his thoughts. I laugh. I tell him we are sharing the thoughts. Some times one of us thinks the oddest thoughts. Thoughts that you wouldn't think any one would consider. The other will voice the thought. Occasionally we answer unspoken questions (questions in thought) to one another.

It seems that very often we are on the outside or side ways of tragidy. We seem to slip past auto accidents, tornados, ........ all sorts of potentially harmful situitations. On our trip south in March and April we escaped several auto accidents and tornados by timing that may have been seconds. There was always a divertion to cause us to not be in a location at the specific time.

Our experience with the spirit world, as much as we lack understanding, is still a miricle.

These and many more miricles happen every day in my life, the life of my family, and others lives I'm sure. Perhaps some take these things for granted and are not aware that we are not the sole masters of our destiny. Mircles do happen every day though. In large and in small ways they happen to all of us.

I have to agree with Moonchild. I accidentally found Ghost Village by googling ghost forums, as I wanted to post a photo of a "ghost" I had captured. I felt welcomed right away and loved reading everything on the board. GV has been a miracle. Even though I have never met and may never meet anyone on here, it is as if we have so much in common and all of us have such a connection and a support system for each other. I love it so much because I work from home and find myself isolated not working with others like I used to.

Other miracles.... I used to live 13 miles from where I live now. While riding my bike with a friend, my chain came off my bike far from home and got really stuck. A man came out of his house, got some tools and fixed my bike. Many years later, I found this man as I worked with him in a real estate office and realized he was the one "who saved my life", lol, we became best friends instantly and now he is my husband. We both remember that day like it was yesterday. Fate? Miracle? Both??

Also, 6 years ago, we had a cat that used to come around a couple of times a week, never hungry (she caught her own food), so I just figured it was a neighbor's cat roaming (even though we are far from any neighbors that have any pets). At the beginning of a nor'easter snowstorm which lasted 2 days with high winds and lots of snow, the cat was on our deck at our back slider and just would not leave. I felt so bad and took the cat in, thinking we would keep it safe during the storm. With no collar or tag, and a big belly and no luck in finding the owner, we took her to the vet to find out she was pregnant and due in a week. We never did find the owner and we kept her. She had 5 big tiger boys, 3 we kept, 2 my friend took. I thank my lucky stars for that 2 day nor'easter snowstorm. If it was not for that storm, we would have never taken the stray (Callie) in and who knows what would have happened to her 5 kittens.

I am truly blessed by miracles: too many to count, but here's a few.

My beautiful, 20 year old daughter Jessie, light of my life, is my heart. She came along the one and only time I did not use birth control properly. (long story, sorry if that's too personal). I always wanted a baby girl and I my dream came true.

The job req # for my current teaching job was 06-0863. Well, I knew I was going to get the job because my birthday is August 6, 1963.

My second husband has taught me to never give up on another human being, no matter how hopeless his/her life seems. *Expect a Miracle*

The students I teach are daily miracles becuase I learn about humanity, faith, and patience every day. When I see a student several years after he/she has graduated and they remember something I taught them, or we talked about in class, then it's truly a miracle to have made a difference in someone's life.

Finally, GV is a miracle, for the first time I know others are like me and I am not alone! :Spaz:
