Proverbs 3:27 Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.

When you think of miracles, what comes to mind? When some think of miracles they think of an extraordinary shot in basketball, a superior feat in athletics, an incredible win in sports, an amazing rescue, a near miss in an accident, an unscathed escape from a tragedy, an unexplained healing or a radical life change. The source or generation of these miraculous occurrences can be messy.

We live around some amazing people! I am so impressed at the depth of character, the breath of kindness and humility, and their great strength in hope. They seem to have a never-ending supply of hope or huge emotional well of fresh hope to draw from. I was talking with a man a while back whose wife had been in a care facility due to her dementia and physical health. Despite the long daily drives,  tedious feeding times, and the lack of communication that once was there, but was no longer and greatly missed, he had hope.

There are a lot of journeys in life that are worthwhile and valuable; eating healthy, exercising, developing good character, building relationships, learning, trying new things, exploring and more. These expeditions tend to bring out our best and bring a fullness of life that we were created for.

I'm sure this has happened to you, you wake up in the middle of the night and groping in the dark you try to find your way and inadvertently run into something.

I woke up on one of those dark, dark nights with very little moon and thinking I was walking through the door, yep you guessed it, I walked right into the door.
