Miracle Monday

This may not seem like a Miracle to most, but when I was raising my daughter I was far away from home; we did not have email, cell phone or Internet! I only had snail mail. It would have been so wonderful if I had such support as we all have in today's day and age of technology. I was a young married mother who had the support of a few aged women at church mostly on Sundays. My husband and I were very busy with our ministry, working full time in secular jobs and trying to find quality time for our daughter and each other. There wasn't even a great amount of "help" books on parenting (other than Dr. Spock). Now you can find them everywhere! So my Miracle Monday for today is technology. If it were not for the technology we have today, I would not have met such incredible godly and gifted women such as yourselves who pray for me, and encourage me on a daily basis.

Thank you Lord for giving mankind the knowledge to expand our horizons. I realize there is technology that we could do without, but for the things that enhance, increase, and save lives, I thank you Lord; for I know I would not be alive today if it were not for some of the technologies that have enhanced medicine. Thank you Lord for the miracle that I am able to "talk" with so many godly women all across the world at the same time! That is truly amazing.

The miracle of technology is a wonderful thing!

I wish that I had known about the wonderful world of blogs 3 years ago when my babies were really little. I might have been a much happier and less lonely person!

Thank you for sharing this today!

Technology is a great miracle that God has blessed us with my friend.

I am so thankful for the age I live in. It would make the seperation of space from family exuberently hard if we couldn't communicate the way we can.

I hope you are starting to feel better. I was just reading about your problems and I pray that God's healing hand will be on you.
Love you Auntie!

Thanks for sharing this miracle and reminding us of just how blessed we are because of today's technology. I, too, am very thankful for the internet and being able to make connections with friends and family around the world.
I am also thankful for all the things that have been developed that help find cancer and other problems in our body. My husband and I both have had cancer and I am so thankful that it was found and removed. His was 12 years ago and mine seven.
Yes, technology is a wonderful miracle. And God has made it all possible.
