SUNDAY IS FOR POETRY: Recipe for a Miracle


  • 1 cup of Tension
  • 2 cups of Stress
  • 1 teaspoon of Guilt
  • 2 heaping cups of Limited Time
  • 3/4 tablespoons of Urgency
  • A dash of "No Other Choice"
  • 3 heaping cups of Faith

Fold in ingredients gently into a bowl. Mix vigorously and add a few tears. You'll sweat a little as you knead the dough.

Pack it firmly between your hopes and dreams and form into a perfect little ball.

Sprinkle it with a little faith, rolling the ball in the flour until fully covered.

Place it under a veil of belief and allow it to rise.

Put it in an oven that has been pre-set at the perfect temperature for the heat of trials and tribulations.

Allow it to brown under the warmth of God's love. Remove after due season and allow to cool in the confidence of His promise.

Garnish with your praises. Arrange neatly on a platter of thankfulness and serve to friends, families, and oh yes, strangers...invite them too!

Pass on the recipe to all who request it and let them know that with this recipe, they have the makings of a miracle!

Understand, Sandy! I love how Deepak Chopra says it! "Between the grievance and a miracle, choose the miracle." Often not so easy, but it helps! :))

We truly do, Kat! :))

I think they were in Canada recently. But if they come by your neck of the woods next year, I highly recommend them! I'm going to try and post some of their songs from the concert soon. I didn't get any, but a friend did.

One everyone can relate to, Tipper!
On such days, we can all use a miracle! :))
