and in part as clues that there is something beyond the flat world we see.
I also think they happen every day, from the baby’s perfect shoulder
in the sonogram, to saints performing wonders.”
- Peggy Noonan
The other day, a local McDonald’s was robbed at gunpoint. Neither the patrons nor the police officers who happened to be in the parking lot knew about it until hours later. Given the oblivion of the police, this of course made the news. The story made me wonder how much we actually perceive. While this robbery was hardly a miracle, we can view it in a positive way by letting it remind us that good things happen all the time that we’re never aware of. Miracles and magic are taking place just around the corner, behind our backs, right before we get there and right after we leave, right under our very noses! We may never see all that magic, but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening all the same.
