Miracle Box

The other day, I went to the front door and there was a package--a total surprise. My dear friend Donna from My Shabby Chateau sent me this beautiful wooden box...

I was so overwhelmed with gratitude. And then, I sat down to send her an email and that’s when it dawned on me that this is a “Miracle Box.” Life is filled with miracles and every time one happens, I will write it down and keep it inside the box.

So, you see, through the miracle of friendship, I received this box that will help me see clearly the miracles that happen every day...and guess what? They have already started happening!

As I pray for miracles in my own life and that of my family, I pray for miracles in yours.

On this beautiful Sunday, I hope that you will visit Donna and see her awesome blog...It is representative of her wonderful talent and beautiful spirit.

On this beautiful Sunday, I wish you all joy and peace and miracles.

Today is my husband's birthday--Happy Birthday, Honey. I wish you miracles.



P.S. I have just become part of the Design Team at Dezinaworld and I hope you'll scroll down and see some of my newest creations!

Linking this to Spiritual Sunday with Charlotte and Ginger!!!

Boxes, and this is a very pretty one...
Did you ever hear of the one God gave..
One was for blessings and the other for sorrows. The blessings one got heavier while the sorrows one never changed. One day the owner turned the box over and found a hole. He questioned God about this. God replied.."The hole is for your sorrows to pass through, I have taken them for you." CM xxx

Hi Cindy! How sweet of Donna to send you the little miracle box, she's sweet like that.
I think we all need reminders from time to time that miracles happen in our lives everyday. It also helps to write them down and store them away for the times when you need reminders the most.

hugs, sweet friend.


Angie said...

I absolutely love Donna- she is one of the dearest people I have ever met (or actaully NOT met-lol)...and she is the one that told me about your blog (and you)....and thought I would love you (I thought she meant there was another crazy person blogging but I find you totally sane)...Nice post, Cindy! xxoo Diana
