Human life, no doubt.
We are the miracle of the universe.

"There are things in life that we must endure which
are all but unendurable, and yet I feel there is a great goodness.
Why, when there could have been nothing, is there something?  This
is a great mystery.  How, when there could have been nothing, does it
happen that there is love, kindness, beauty?"

Jane Kenyon

Everything is miracle. Everynothing is miracle too. And we know that when we say 'everything" we mean nothing, and when we say "nothing" we mean something.

Thanks for your thoughts.  

Did you know that miracle is related to smile?


Miracle

1137, from O.Fr. miracle, from L. miraculum "object of wonder" (in Church L., "marvelous event caused by God"), from mirari "to wonder at," from mirus "wonderful," from *smeiros, from PIE *(s)mei- "to smile, be astonished" (cf. Skt. smerah "smiling," Gk. meidan "to smile," O.C.S. smejo "to laugh;" see smile). Replaced O.E. wundortacen, wundorweorc. The Gk. words rendered as miracle in the Eng. Bibles were semeion "sign," teras "wonder," and dynamis "power," in Vulgate translated respectively as signum, prodigium, and virtus. First record of miraculous is from 1502. (From etymonline.com)

Nothing does not mean the past and future.

Neverything...illogical. "Never a thing" is a lie.  

Did you know that miracle is related to smile?
I am glad to know this because in general when we talk about miracle it is always related to good things, which does make a smile.
