Believe It Or Not

Posted Wednesday, February 24, 2010, at 7:01 AM

We've all seen magic shows either on TV or in person. Margie and I saw the magician David Copperfield a few years ago, and the "illusions" that he pulls off makes it seem as if he is not from this planet by performing feats humanly impossible.

There's something catchy about magic for most of us. We wonder how in the heck the guy gets the rabbit out of the hat, or moves through solid steel walls, or cuts the lady in half. Though our rational thinking lets us know we are watching a skilled illusionist at a magic show, when real "magic" and power happen would you know it?

My mother has been staying with us for the last few months as she has needed some assistance due somewhat to age, but mostly health issues. A couple days ago she died. Well... maybe not. You see I feel I witnessed a miracle on Monday. Mom and I were sitting at the kitchen table visiting when suddenly mom gave me the scare of a lifetime.

All I can really say about Monday mornings events at the farm(stead) is that from death to being back at home the next day feeling and acting as though nothing happened is pretty miraculous. Mom's doctors have no idea what happened, but I do.

Today I'm sharing my miracle. Those that are not believers will quickly attribute this to some known medical condition and perhaps that is the "scientific" magical answer. But I'm here today to tell you that I was there, I'm the only one that really knows what went on in my living room, and God is real, powerful, and works miracles.

Believe it or not.

I believe your words, and believe we will be seeing much more miracles in the rest of this year, of a diversity of happenings. Praise God for your mother receiving His healing touch.
