Just because something isn’t common does not mean it cannot happen. This is the basis of the idea of miracles, but we can also call these instances “irregularities” or “flukes” or simply notice that sometimes life plays out differently than traditional ideas and expectations would allow. Are new things unhelpful? All miracles were once new things that had yet to be seen. We can both respect the new and appreciate the old in a mindful attitude of prayer.
I am a second-grade teacher and pastor-to-be who loves people. I spend my weekends with friends or wandering the museums of DC alone and with a journal, trying to put words on the places of the soul that still feel wordless. I spent most of my days at school trying to learn patience through my students and running on sheer nerdy passion. I follow Jesus Christ, and savor that as my most important identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
