Miracles is a book that brought a tear to my eye on more than one occasion. It is a 52-week devotional. It is basically 52 short stories that detail different miracles complete with Bible verses. These stories were very, very moving and inspiring. I summarized just a few at dinner with my family this weekend, and my kids were all riveted.
A couple of my favorite devotionals included stories of miracles that occurred for those that were struggling with being able to have children, or those whose lives were saved through miracles, and also friends and family that were separated because of misunderstandings, but then were reunited in a miraculous way. One of my favorite stories was a doctor that came home after a long day and was stopped by a little girl that said her mother was in trouble. The doctor went with her to her home and helped out her mother. The mother asked how she knew she was in medical distress and the doctor responded that her daughter had told her. The mother said that her daughter had died a few months ago. The doctor saw the same little girl coat hanging up that the girl had worn to come and get her. The angel of the little girl was watching over the mother and went for the doctor providing a miracle for the woman.
I also loved one explanation in the book when a woman wonders why God saved her from an accident that killed many others. Her father replied that God has a different time for everyone to be called home to heaven and it was not her time. I loved thinking about it like that. Some people are just wanted in heaven sooner than others.
Overall, I loved Miracles by Karen Kingsbury. It is a wonderful devotional about true miracles that have taken place through God that are inspiring and emotional to read. I have a few people on my Christmas list that I am going to buy this book for!
