It amazes me when Christians claim healing and miracles “were back then”and not now! THEY HAPPEN EVERY DAY and to you and me, yet we get caught up in our “if onlys” and miss them. In this Easter season as we celebrate our Lord dying on a tree and rising to life again,I can think of 2 miracles in my life involving trees.
On the day of Christmas eve in what was then my first home I got up and before coffee headed to the front steps for the newspaper. Bending to pick it up, in my half asleep stupor, it came to mind that the sun seemed too bright. I stood up and realized the huge oak tree next to my driveway had fallen during the night . . . I slept through it not hearing the snap, crash, crunch . . . and my home was untouched.
A couple of years ago, in a different home, I was awakened by a loud BOOM in the night and in the dark saw little but by day realized a large portion of a tree behind my house fell missing damaging my home by ONE INCH!
Miracles happen folks! Sometimes much smaller than trees and other times MUCH LARGER but good gifts come in all sizes! Take notice and be thankful.
