Well what else would you expect to get back on this search?

The movie Christmas Miracle is about people with very different backgrounds and problems in their lives who are stranded in a snow storm.  Eventually the true Christmas spirit comes to surface and they assist each other with overcoming their own life problems.

In my post ‘Christmas Movies’, I wrote about how I am a sucker for the made for television Christmas movies – can’t help it – I love these movies.  Couple of weeks ago I watched one on the Hallmark channel titled Debbie Macomber’s Call Me Mrs. Miracle.

This was the first time I had seen this movie and I completely enjoyed it.  Yes, I know it is the typical made for television Christmas movie; they all usually end the same.  But this movie had a person that was named Mrs. Miracle. Mrs. Miracle is a housekeeper who brings a widowed father of 2 boys and the best friend of the boy’s first grade teacher together just in time for Christmas.

I then Googled ‘Miracle’ and listed first on the results is the movie Miracle.  Well what else would you expect to get back on this search?

The movie Miracle is about the 1980 U.S. men’s Olympic hockey team who overcame insurmountable odds to win the gold medal with the help of a college coach.

Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia has this definition for Miracle –

A miracle is an event not explicable by natural or scientific laws.  Such an event may be attributed to a supernatural being (God or gods), a miracle worker, a saint or a religious leader.

The word “miracle” is often used to characterise any beneficial event that is statistically unlikely but not contrary to the laws of nature, such as surviving a natural disaster, or simply a “wonderful” occurrence, regardless of likelihood, such as a birth. Other miracles might be: survival of an illness diagnosed as terminal, escaping a life-threatening situation or ‘beating the odds’. Some coincidences may be seen as miracles.

I like the word miracle and what it stands for, the meaning, the definition.  I am sure there are events that occur every day that are considered miracles and I like to think there are people in our lives that are miracles.  Just like in the movies, there is a person or persons that bring people together for a common good and a common purpose.  I have some miracles in my life, people who were there to give me an opportunity, to save me when I fell and to understand me and my problems.  These people brought me to today, this day, a day of goodness and a day of purpose.

Have you had a miracle in your life?

  1. I’m with you Spear! I love Christmas movies. The Scrooge movies are top on the list and of course the oldie goldies…The Bishop’s Wife and It’s a Wonderful Life. Oh, and Prancer–it’s been out for a good while. But yeah, I’m a total fan.
    Miracles? Hmmmm, my sweet Japanese wife and I still talk about the miracle of finding each other just four years ago. I would say she’s a miracle, yes indeed.

  2. I agree, although most of the made for TV Christmas movies follow a similar plot they do have a comforting element to them. I have had them playing in the background while I work and it has helped get me into the Christmas spirit. Have a great Christmas and New Years!

    • I found for me, they are a reminder of what Christmas should be about; the Christmas spirit – goodness, happiness, all those feel good emotions. Thanks for reading and commenting – hope your Christmas was wonderful. 🙂
