“Take time to see the quiet miracles that seek no attention.”

John O’Donohue, Irish poet, author, and philosopher

Let’s go on an imaginary scavenger hunt.

We are hunting for miracles. What do you see in your immediate surrounding? Look up. Look down. Look right and left. Zoom in. Zoom out. What miracles did you notice to put on your list?

As John O’Donohue seems to know, most miracles are basically silent. They don’t scream look at me, I’m a miracle for you to cherish that you missed in all of your busyness.

In most cases, if the decibel levels of life are up, the likelihood of experiencing a miracle are low.


How can you more fully experience and appreciate the miracles in your world that seek no attention?

How could more of these quiet observations add to the richness of your life?
