Psalm 139:13-16 CEV:

"You are the one who put me together in my mothers body, and I praise you because of the wonderful way you created me. Everything you do is marvelous! Of this day I have no doubt. Nothing abut me is hidden from you! I was secretly woven together deep in the earth below, but with your own eyes you saw my body being formed. Even before I was born, you had written in your book everything I would do".


When we begin to feel like there is nothing special about us or when we look in the mirror and hate what we see, we need to remember that we were created out of pure and unconditional love by the most talented creator. Remember that you are his masterpiece, unique and priceless.


Lord, please help me to celebrate who I am. Allow me to be who you have created me to be and give me the courage to express your truth so that others may see your light in me!!!

PostSubject: How much would you pay for a miracle?   Fri Nov 06, 2009 11:02 am

Note: I received this story via email and it truly made made my day. I hope you all enjoy it!!

How much does a miracle cost?
A little girl went to her bedroom and pulled a glass jelly jar from her hiding place in the closet..
She poured the change out on the floor and counted it carefully.
Three times, even. The total had to be exactly perfect. No chance here for mistakes...
Carefully placing the coins back in the jar and twisting on the cap, she slipped out the back door and made her way 6 blocks to Rexall’s Drug Store with the big red Indian Chief sign above the door…

She waited patiently for the pharmacist to give her some attention, but he was too busy a this moment…
Tess twisted her feet to make a scuffing noise..
Nothing.. She cleared her throat with the most disgusting sound she could muster.. No good.. Finally she took a quarter from her jar and banged it on the glass counter. That did it!
“And what do you want”?, the pharmacist asked in an annoyed tone of voice.”I’m talking to my brother from Chicago whom I haven’t seen in ages”, he said without waiting for a reply to his question..
“Well, I want to talk to you about my brother”, Tess answered back in the same annoyed tone. He’s really, really, sick… and I want to buy a miracle.”
“I beg your pardon?” said the pharmacist…
“He’s name is Andrew and he has something bad growing inside his head and my Daddy says only a miracle can save him now. So how much does a miracle cost?”
“We don’t sell miracles here, little girl. I’m sorry but I can’t help you, the pharmacist said, softening a little.
“Listen, I have the money to pay for it. If it isn’t enough, I will get the rest. Just tell me how much it costs?..
The pharmacist’s brother was a well dressed man. He stooped down and asked the little girl, “What kind of a miracle does your brother need?”
“I don’t know”, Tess replied with her eyes welling up. I just know he’s really sick and Mommy says he needs an operation. But my Daddy can’t pay for it, so I want to use my money”….
“How much do you have?, asked the man from Chicago.
“One dollar and eleven cents, Tess answered barely audibly. And it’s all the money I have, but I can get more if I need to…
“Well, what a coincidence, smiled the man, “A dollar and eleven cents---the exact price of a miracle for little brothers.
He took her money in one hand and with the other hand he grasped her mitten and said, “Take me to where you live. I want to see your brother and meet your parents. Let’s see if I have the miracle you need.”

That well dressed man was Dr. Carlton Armstrong, a surgeon, specializing in neuro-surgery. The operation was completed free of charge and it wasn’t long until Andrew was home again doing well..
Mom and Dad were happily talking about the chain of events that had led them to this place.
“That surgery, her Mom whispered, was a real miracle. “I wonder how much it cost?
Tess smiled. She knew exactly how much a miracle cost..
One dollar and eleven cents +the faith of a little child…

Comment: In our lives, we never know how many miracles we will need. A miracle is not the suspension of natural law, but the operation of a higher law.. If you want to see more miracles in your life….BE THE MIRACLE!!!
