Chapter 8, Page 18, Book 10

To believe is to know that every day
is a new beginning.
It is to trust that miracles happen,
and dreams really do come true.
To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds,
To know the wonder of a stardust sky
and the wisdom of the man in the moon.
To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,
The innocence of a child's eyes
and the beauty of an aging hand,
for it is through their teachings we learn to love.
To believe is to find the strength
and courage that lies within us.
When it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again.
To believe is to know we are not alone,
That life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it.
To believe is to know that wonderful surprises
are just waiting to happen,
And all our hopes and dreams are within reach.
If only we believe.

It's WONDERFUL Wednesday!

I do believe that wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen for all of us every day!

When rain has been in the forecast, it's a wonderful surprise that the sun shines

When you thought you were down to your last dollar, you find a $20 in your pocket

When you thought you were lonely, a friend comes to visit

When you failed to follow through, you found it was for the best after all.

When you were late for an appointment, you found you were really just in time.

When you though the last rose had bloomed, another bud shows up

Surprises, like miracles are instantaneous. They come out of nowhere and when we least expect them.

The miracles of nature do not seem miracles because they are so common. If no one had ever seen a flower, even a dandelion would be the most startling event in the world.


Today is truly a gift. It's a present wrapped up and waiting for you to open it. What is inside will be filled with surprises.

Today I'll be living each moment to fullest and I do believe it will be a WONDERFUL day!

May you be blessed with a WONDERFUL day too!
