Ordinary Miracle

This week the girls and I had a movie day while dad was away on business ... just us girls, take out pizza and a couple movies we've been wanting to see. One was "Charlotte's Web". My mom had read the book to my girls once when she was visiting, but we hadn't seen the movie. When the movie ended with Sarah MacLachlan singing "Ordinary Miracle" I was so drawn in! Time stopped and the hair stood up on my arms as I listened to the beautiful words.

Lord, open our eyes to see all the "Ordinary Miracles" you've provided for us.

Sarah McLachlan Ordinary Miracle

It’s not that unusual
When everything is beautiful
It’s just another ordinary miracle today
The sky knows when its 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 every time a rain drop falls
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

Birds and winter have their fling
But 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’re all a part
Of the ordinary miracle
Ordinary miracle

Do you want to see a miracle?
It seems so exceptional
That things just work out after all
It’s just another ordinary miracle today
Sun comes up and shines so bright
And disappears again at night
It’s just another ordinary miracle
It’s just another ordinary miracle today

We often look for the extraordinary miracles and miss the endless ordinary ones right in front of us.

I'm not familar with this song but the words are amazing. Would this be something suitable for the worship team to do? We talk so much about miracles and yet miss out on just how many occur on a daily basis.

Thanks - enjoyed have coffee with you and Andrew this past week - let's do it soon just for the fun of it!!

Those are beautiful lyrics....

Lately God has been showing me so much in ordinary everyday things...

I think I need to rent the movie for the kids.

Vicki, I love that song. I remember the first time I heard it, I cranked it up on the radio, powerful words. So true, the ordinary miracles we tend to look over. Your a blessing, Tammy
