Chapter 3, Page 13, Book 19



If spring came but once a century instead of once a year, or burst forth with the sound of an earthquake and not in silence, what wonder and expectation there would be in all hearts to behold the miraculous change.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

March 13 - miracles happen


Every spring is the only spring, a perpetual astonishment.

Ellis Peters

Spring is a miracle happening right before our eyes.  Even when the ground is covered with snow, new life is beginning deep down in the earth.  To see a tulip or a daffodil push up through the earth when days start growing longer is a miracle in itself.

Miracles are all around us every day, but I think more so in spring.  Miracles still happen we just have to open our eyes to see them.  I’m always amazed when I see leaves emerging from their winter hibernation.

If you are a nature lover, it’s hard to beat spring.  It’s fun to see new little critters that arrive this time of year.  From tadpoles to bunnies and butterflies, new life is a miracle, a time of awe and wonder.

When I think about leaving a cold winter behind and going into a warm spring, my whole being seems to come alive too.  That is the miracle of spring.


Spring is when life’s alive in everything.

Christina Rossetti

I think to myself the wonder of spring. How do they know when to bloom? And when to go to sleep? I think of all the miracles God has made. Amazing - I can't see how some one doesn't believe. sandie

Spring is indeed a miracle with how the plants keep coming back, how the leaves once again form on the trees, etc. Like Sandie said, God has made us so many miracles in this beautiful world he made.

small miracles happen everyday. "When I think about leaving a cold winter behind and going into a warm spring, my whole being seems to come alive too."
