This treasury of all-new true miracle stories from the bestselling authors of Christmas Miracles, The Magic of Christmas Miracles, and Mothers' Miracles offers the real-life wonder their readers have come to love. Some highlights: A disk jockey's selection of music has an astounding unintended effect a comatose Polish woman begins to softly sing along with a song from her childhood. While body surfing, a man is slammed by a wave and hears his neck snap. Unable to move, he begins to swallow water to hasten death. Instead, he feels himself lifted from the water, gliding safely to shore. A school janitor befriends a student, only to learn that she is the daughter of his long-lost son and his very own granddaughter. A Gift of Miracles, like its predecessors, will remind readers and their families that in the midst of our hectic and sometimes frightening world, magic, mystery, and miracles happen. And that if we look hard enough in the corners of our own lives, we, too, can find miracles.
In this new volume, the authors of the bestselling Christmas Miracles, The Magic of Christmas Miracles, Mothers' Miracles, and A Gift of Miracles share more than thirty of the most transcendent and mystical true stories they have encountered of ordinary people whose lives were transformed by wondrous events, including: "An Angel's Hand": A struck car spins wildly, sending the passenger door and seat belt flying. Yet the girl in the passenger seat is unhurt-miraculously held in place. "A Path Through the Wilderness": Fleeing to freedom, a mother and son are led safely through a mine-infested forest by a blessed nighttime apparition. "Thanks, Tad": A child receives visits from the grandfather who died years before she was born. "Matchmaker in Heaven": A mysterious red-haired woman has some surprising insights into the personal ads. "A Shaving Cream Surprise": A husband sends a tender message to his grieving widow. "Miracles come more often than we might suppose," the authors write, "and it's very likely that every family has at least one story they could tell. Each small miracle seems to come as part of a greater plan, to accomplish a thing of worth, to help change a life, in addition to offering comfort. Heavenly miracles-proof of God's love and involvement in our lives-are all around us." Let Heavenly Miracles enrich your heart, mind, and soul and remind us all that miracles do, indeed, happen.
