Christmas Miracles

Miracles can happen any time of year, but they seem almost magical when they happen during the Christmas season. Miracles are, by definition, something supernatural, that cannot be explained by logic or science. Some will simply dismiss a miracle as happenstance. Others will say it is evidence of God or some other higher power at work in our lives.

No matter what your religious beliefs, miracles are something positive that happens during times of stress, emotional turmoil, financial worries or ill health. Even those who do not hold to a belief in a higher power still will marvel at positive happenings even though they may stop short of terming them as miracles.

For Christians everywhere, the true meaning of this season has nothing to do with gifts, reindeer or Santa Claus. Rather, the focus is on a baby, born to a virgin, in a stable in the town of Bethlehem.

Baby's are miracles in their own right. They grow inside their mothers womb, starting out as two small cells and in a few months enter the world as part of the process we call the miracle of birth. Anyone who has witnessed the birth of a child, particularly their own child, will confess it is a humbling, and sometimes frightening occurrence.

Most of us have been blessed with healthy children, but some have experienced the birth of a child who is forced to deal with the complexities of life early on.

Such is the case of baby Wilson (Wil) as related at InsureBlog a few weeks ago.

You will be glad to know that baby Wil is progressing and thanks to the work of the doctors in attendance, and the prayers of many, is showing improvement.

If you would like to track the progress of baby Wil, you can do so by clicking this link and registering. You may also post a message of hope if you wish.

For the parents of baby Wil, the miracle of Christmas is an ongoing event. And that is the way it should be.

God bless. Peace to all.
