wild geese and ordinary miracles

Over the weekend, I heard one of my favorite noises–the honking of a flock of Canadian geese overhead.  I love that sound because for me, it signals the coming of Autumn.  As I watched them fly by, I stood in awe of all the pieces of this ordinary miracle–migration, flight, teamwork, communication–something seemingly so simple yet so intricate.

Today, I encourage you to slow down and look for the ordinary miracles around you, reflecting on how you yourself can be a part of an ordinary miracle for someone else.
Sarah Mclachlan – Ordinary Miracle
It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when it’s time to snow
You don’t need to teach a seed to grow
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift they say
Wrapped up for you everyday
Open up and find a way
To give some of your own

Isn’t it remarkable?
Like every time a raindrop falls
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Birds in winter have their fling
And always make it home by spring
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

When you wake up everyday
Please don’t throw your dreams away
Hold them close to your heart
Cause we are all a part
Of the ordinary miracle

Ordinary miracle
Do you want to see a miracle?

Its seems so exceptional
Things just work out after all
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

The sun comes up and shines so bright
It disappears again at night
It’s just another ordinary miracle today
It’s just another ordinary miracle today
