Chapter 11, Page 25, Book 15



Where there is great love there are always miracles.     

 Willa Cather


November 25th - love is miraculous

There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.

Albert Einstein

Here are some 'did you know’s and many are a gentle reminder on the miracle of life and how we take a lot of it for granted:  Life is a miraculous gift! 


Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. The real miracle is the love that inspires them. In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle.

Marianne Williamson


Most people blink about 17,000 times a day
There are 60,000 miles of blood vessels in every human person
Dolphins sleep with one eye open
Your sense of smell is around 10,000 times more sensitive than your taste
In your lifetime you will shed 40 pounds of skin
We share 70% of our DNA with a slug
No matter what its size or thickness, no piece of paper can be folded in half more than 7 times
An elephant needs to drink about 210 litres of water a day
Butterflies taste food by standing on it. Their taste receptors are on their feet
Rats multiply so quickly that in 18 months 2 rats could have a million descendants
Sneezing with your eyes open is impossible
Sound travels 4 times faster in water than it does through the air
It takes 70% less energy to produce a ton of paper from recycled paper than it does from trees
A hippopotamus may be huge but it can still run faster than a human
Your nose and ears continue to grow throughout your life
The Pacific Ocean contains around 25,000 different islands, more than any other ocean and finally ants do not sleep!


To me every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle.  

Walt Whitman

It is in the acknowledgement of blessings that miracles occur.  Gratitude and a prayer of thanks can move mountains… 

Have a thankful day!


Miracles come in moments. Be ready and willing.

Wayne Dyer

I sat at my desk and laughed when I read that we share 70% of our DNA with a slug. Now I know why St. Francis called every creature and everything in creation "Brother" and "Sister"! I must remember to greet Sister Slug each day!

Those were interesting facts and I didn't know a lot of them! Something to share with hubby too :)

Love truly is miraculous and can be s healing when one is loved and one gives love to others :)

Liked all the quotes today. I guess I like Einstein's best, he is easy to admire also.
The list is super interesting.
