If you have a blessing, if you have a miracle then appreciate it, hold it close, marvel that you were given it and do not take it for granted that it will always be around but enjoy the moment.
Blessings are things we have and appreciate. Usually something we have that others do not have, which makes it more special.
People say they are so blessed to have certain things. Why are they blessed to have it and not someone else? Did they earn it, win it, deserve it? I haven't figured out the rule for blessings yet.
Why are some blessed with sight while others are not? Why are some blessed with children when others are not? Why are some blessed to live in prosperity while others are not? Why are some children born into loving and safe homes while others are not? There seems to be no rhyme or reason other than God's will, pure luck, or random chance.
Miracles fall in the same category. It's a miracle he survived the car accident, survived the war, survived cancer, survived all sorts or tragedies. But why him? Why not her? It's almost more a miracle to have a miracle than the actual happenings.
So many lose their children, spouses, houses, jobs, pets, and health with no miracle. It's not a lack of faith or knowledge, a matter of choices or desire. It seems to be a matter of happenstance or unknown God's plan.
So if you have a miracle, if you have a blessing then appreciate it, hold it close, marvel that you were given it and do not take it for granted that it will always be around but enjoy the moment. Hug your children, your spouse, your cat, your car, or yourself because life is a gift.
