My sister-in-law and her family came to stay with us for Thanksgiving this year. That has been wonderful, but it’s not the miracle.
The Older Sister Is Coming! Clean the House!
In preparation for their visit, we cleaned the house pretty thoroughly. While cleaning the basement, I looked at the battery-operated clock on the wall.
These batteries have been dead for about six months, the clock hasn’t worked for that long, and we have never cared enough to change the batteries.
“Now might be a good time to change the batteries,” I mused. So I wrote “AA batteries” on my wife’s grocery list.
Oh Yeah…The Clock
Later that afternoon, both our families were talking in the kitchen and I spied the package of batteries on the kitchen island. “Hey,” I thought, “I should go put new batteries in the basement clock.”
I went downstairs, got the clock, brought it up to the kitchen, and changed the batteries. Then I turned the clock over to make sure it was working again.
Success! It was.
It’ll Be Nice to Have the Correct Time in the Basement Again
Having verified that the clock was working, but not having touched it in any other way, I looked up at the kitchen clock to get the current time (so I could set the basement clock).
Bear in mind – the basement clock hadn’t run for about six months and no one had touched it during that time.
When I looked up at the kitchen clock, the photo at the beginning of this post is what I saw.
The two clocks were on the same exact time!
There is Probably a Greater Chance that My Dog, Sam, Will Sing “Hello Baltimore” (From Hairspray) In Its Entirety Than This Happening
The basement clock “just happened” to have stopped, six months ago, at the exact time I put the batteries in this evening!
Aren’t miracles wonderful?
My wife asked me later, “What does it mean?”
What Does It Mean When A Bonafide Miracle Happens?
Here’s what I believe:
Miracles like this are the quantum field’s way of winking at us, like the loving, playful, and fun-loving energy it is.
Miracles like this are the quantum field’s way of reminding us that everything is a miracle. Nothing is guaranteed to us and just because we now take something for granted and ignore it does not mean it is not a full-blown miracle that we can authentically celebrate if we so choose.
Miracles like this get our attention and refocus us on the wondrous joy inherent in every moment, and in all the things we call “ordinary”, “commonplace”, and “mundane”. We recall that we are part of the greatest game in the universe, inhabiting a human body and experiencing human life with all the amazing power of creation that affords us.
The Quantum Field Speaks Through You Too, So Don’t Be Shy
Please let me know what you think it means.
I hope you are also inspired to become reacquainted with the “everyday” miracles you, like me, have probably gotten in the habit of overlooking.
