Ordinary Miracle

It's just an ordinary miracle: How's that for an oxymoron?

Here on the County Line, we are surrounded by ordinary miracles. But if you just take time to look, the things you walk past or drive past every day become extraordinary.

The tree which had stripped down for the winter is now wearing its new springtime garb.

Six weeks ago, the wheat was buried under a blanket of snow.

Then, just three weeks ago, the wheat was starting to green and wake from its winter sleep.

But here's how the wheat looked yesterday morning. It was like God's green paint can tipped over and spilled in our wheat fields, dousing them with the very color of springtime and new life.

It's pretty amazing what some moisture and warmer temperatures can do.

Ordinary miracles? I think not.

Here's Sarah McLachlan singing the song "Ordinary Miracle" from "Charlotte's Web." Enjoy!

Ordinary Miracle
It's not that unusual
When everything is beautiful
It's just another
Ordinary miracle today

The sky knows when it's time to snow
Don't need to teach a seed to grow
It's just another
Ordinary miracle today

Life is like a gift, they say
Wrapped up for you everyday
Open up, and find a way
To give some of your own

Isn't it remarkable?
Like everytime a raindrop falls
It's just another
Ordinary miracle today
