Special, and unforgettable
Today, after a 72 hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug. When I tensed up, she realized I didn’t recognize her. She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sincere smile and said, “On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center.”
Today, after eating lunch, I walked out of a restaurant carrying a box of leftovers. A homeless man came up to me and asked if he could have some of the food. I ignored him and kept walking. Two minutes later, I tripped over a curb and spilled the leftovers all over the sidewalk

Do you believe in miracles?
When David slew Goliath (yes!), that was a miracle.
When God gave us manna in the wilderness, that was a miracle, too.
But of all God’s miracles large and small,
The most miraculous one of all
Is the one I thought could never be:
God has given Him to me.
Another legend, courtesy of J.C.: Wood came from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden. After Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden, the Tree kept spreading its root systems until a thick forest grew from the original tree. When Noah needed wood to build the ark, God directed him to this wood. The resulting wood was easliy worked. As Noah nailed the planks into a boat, the planks grew roots and branches, linking with the other planks and becoming a solid mass.
After the Ark settled, it put down roots where it landed and again, a large forest grew and developed. When a survey team from Rome arrived, the men were amazed at the trees, which they had never seen before, The decided to cut down a sample to take with them back to Rome. They also took some of the nails they founr in the dirt with the wood.
When the survey team arrived in Jerusalem, they stored their samples in a room at Pilate's house. The wood and nails were later appropriated by Roman soldiers to use in an unexpected and important execution of a carpenter.
So the wood that was our downfall became our salvation.
