Miracles Big and Small

When we asked how do you define a miracle, we got examples both big and small–but all very personal.

Two weeks ago I asked readers one very important question: How do you define a miracle?

Well, I’m happy to report that I got a ton of great responses (seriously, you guys are the best!).

The answers ranged from the very small to the very big. Some readers had one-word definitions, like “Jesus.” Others found miracles in healings from illness, kindness from a stranger or the world’s natural beauty. Regardless, one thing was clear–miracles are extremely personal. Each definition seemed to vary, based on one’s unique relationship with God.

Take a look at the definitions in the slideshow below and see for yourself. In your opinion, which one best captures the concept of a miracle? What would you add to the list?  --Diana Aydin
