“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
~Thich Nhat Hanh
If you love being around children, however, you must appreciate their inborn sense of wonder. They won’t let you for get the miracles around you each day. I like to document some of their interesting questions & remarks from over the years as an early childhood educator.
I just thought I would share the miracles they see….
“Is the Earth hanging in God’s closet….a-cause I don’t see the hanger!” (Three-year-old looking at a picture of the earth taken from the space shuttle)
“I see trees movin’, grass movin’, and my hairs is a-movin’. But what’s movin’ the movin’?” (Three-year-old marveling on a very windy day)
“Up in the sky! I see a cow…no, never mind, it’s a cat…now it’s a car…now it’s a rabbit, now it looks like my little brother! That’s weird!” (A five-year-old looking at the clouds on a windy day)
“If God is bowling right now He must have got a strike right there.” (A four-year-old whispered to another while listening to a thunderstorm)
