Our stake president has been encouraging us to share our miracles. I think we forget sometimes just how common miracles can be. In my reading of the Book of Mormon recently, I was struck by the later chapters that talk about denying miracles. The general impression seems to be that miracles fail not because they no longer exist but because people stop believing or paying attention.
Well I’ve seen miracles, and I saw one yesterday.
Myron, as my long-time readers, has an eye problem–one eye has been crossed and, therefore, non-functioning for most of his life. He had his first surgery nearly two years ago and, after that surgery failed, he had a second surgery about a year ago. In between, he spent months with his eyes patched in a desperate attempt to make his eyes work together.
Yesterday the doctor proved that both of his eyes are working. Together. 🙂
If that is not a miracle, I don’t know what is. My son could not use his eyes; now he can.
Now, yes, I recognize that some might see that as medicine working its magic. Some might see that as the body just healing from the surgery. And why can’t that be a miracle?
Myron’s eyes are something we’ve prayed for as a family for years. Something we’ve fasted over for years. Something that we’ve worked on for years. It’s a miracle.
