Ordinary Miracle

Filed Under winter | 26 comments

About 10:30 last night I looked outside — just as predicted it came…

with simply the light from the street I could see it…

Newly fallen snow is something that always takes my breath way.  Setting my alarm for 6:30, wanting to catch the sunrise, I wandered out only to find an amazing bunch of snow!

Break out the shovel…  uggh!

There was such a quiet out, not too many people up and around on this Sunday morning, but as I made my way “out” I realized that the sun would not be showing up much today because there was such a heavy cloud cover.

The wind had stopped and all around me was simply an Ordinary Miracle today.

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
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 everytime a raindrop falls
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

The 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

It seems so exceptional
That things work out after all
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

The sun comes out and shines so bright
And disappears again at night
It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

It’s just another
Ordinary miracle today

    Hello my friend from winter wonderland. You know how beautiful you make it all seem? I actually wanted to see you making a snow angel, cuz that’s what angels do you know : )
    Did you really set your alarm to take pictures?? You are crazy with a capital C lol
    Great shots really great, but I will wait for Mr. Snow’s arrival later than sooner I hope.
    Just got back from our 48 hour whirlwind road trip to clean out my mom’s apt. Everything went well. She is now settled into her new bach. pad only minutes away from my sister’s house. I put her memorabilia things around so it would make her feel more at home. She’s still confused, but at least she’s taken care of. Randy was with me, and we made it fun. He’s starting to read all about cooking. We went to some cool shops to buy pans and such. He even bought a pink Cuisinart lol. I’ll have to blog about that one.
    Hope all is well with you. I’ll be back on line soon enough, but at least I’m back home now.
    Love You
    Love Me

    Oh, Claudia, your photos are just amazing.  The one with the bright blue sky really stands out.

    Hello Claudia Sweetie…
    What a beautiful share. Just another ordinary miracle today.
    I so enjoyed seeing the snow through your eyes. A beautiful
    share. I love the way it drops on top of things, sometimes 
    leaving the underneath side untouched. The blue sky with
    the snow, seems to take you from one world to another.
    You and that lens of your camera. I would so love to follow
    you around for just one day. Claudia sweet friend, you are
    the BEST.

    I just had to pop over and thank you for the wonderful gift
    of your friendship this year. I look forward to another blessed
    year touched by you. From my Family to Yours, Happy Thanksgiving.
    May you be truly blessed, as you have so blessed me. Many hugs and
    so much love, Sherry
