A friend of mine just recently had his second child (ok he didn’t have him but you know what I mean). Every time someone I know has a baby I’m struck by how this everyday occurrence is so miraculous.
So many people are born everyday we don’t usually give it much thought. I’ve heard people say that they would believe in God if they saw a miracle. Somehow they don’t see their very existence as a miracle. As though just the fact that life itself is common it is somehow less amazing.
Think about it. We know all of the materials that make up something that is alive but we can’t create it. We don’t know what makes this bag of bones we walk around alive. We don’t even know why we know we’re alive.
And of course this is just one example of things we se that are ordinarily miraculous.
