Man must not allow the clock and the calendar to blind him to the fact that each moment of his life is a miracle and a mystery.
H. G. Wells
Our life is full of miracles and full of mysteries. The curiosity, the wonder of what lies just beyond our physical reach, our mental grasp of the things we cannot quite make out or remotely explain, creates our beliefs as well as our non beliefs. It is a mystery to me that I wake up every morning and it’s also a miracle that I do.
Mystery: anything that is kept secret or remains unexplained, the unknown
Miracle: something extraordinary that was impossible before happens.
Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.
Many years ago I made the decision to look for the magic and search for the miracles in my simple everyday life. Our lives are filled with miracles and mysteries, folded and tucked lovingly into the everyday moments we so often miss, or, dismiss.
I had the chance to capture these pictures of a butterfly the other day when I was sitting out on the patio. One of life’s miracles for sure !
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift.
Life is a gift to be enjoyed and cherished each day.
