And oldie but a goodie:

There was a flood in a village.

One man said to everyone, "I'll stay! God will save me!"

The flood got higher and a boat came and the man in it said "Come on mate, get in!"

"No" replied the man. God will save me!

The flood got very high now and the man had to stand on the roof of his house.

A helicopter soon came and the man offered him help."

No, God will save me!" he said

Eventually he died by drowning.

He got by the gates of heaven and he said to God "Why didn't you save me?"

God replied, "For goodness sake! I sent a boat and a helicopter. What more do you want!"

Yep -- the appearances are equally likely to be some robe-draped hippie or Muslim woman in a burqa.

During my fundie days back in the 70's I attended a Full Gospel Businessman's Association convention at the SF Hilton. The hucksters were proclaiming the hotel the next center of Gods focus for the great outpouring of the spirit.

Walking out, I watched a group of Pentecostals fall to their knees on the street corner praising a pollution ring around the sun that appeared to be centered over the corner of the hotel.

The SF Hilton is located at the edge of the Tenderloin district. I chuckled as I walked down the street noting that the "special halo" also appeared directly above the gay porn theater, live nude girls peep show and several adult bookstores. As expected, God was blessing the whole neighborhood, not just the hotel. I recalled looking out the car window as a child and noting that the moon always seemed to follow the car.

What amazes me is that these 'miracles' involving Jesus and Mary appearing on doors, walls, toast, sandwiches etc can even occur, given no one knows what they looked like.

Mary seems to show up so many places it's more of a miracle when she doesn't. So, your cheese sandwich sans T(hairless)VM truly was a miracle.

It was Mary on a grilled cheese sandwich!

Last night I awoke craving a grilled cheese sandwich. Remembering I had used up all the Tillamook, Medium Cheddar, I was about to curse God and die.

I went to the fridge and low and behold I had a full package of Kraft Chipotle White Cheddar. The sandwich was Divine, even better than the sharp cheddar. Praise the Lord!

Either that or he knows that the evidence for such miracles is nonexistent or fraudulent.

Yes, if I had a real miracle, I would definitely be keen to share it. I can only assume Wayseer's hesitancy is due to knowing his/her miracles are not very impressive.

"WHY ME?
Why have I been spared from fatal car accidents? Or being lost in the middle of the desert with no food or water and no way to get help with a flat tire?? Etc... Why was I healed of cancer with no treatments? Why was I healed of gluten intolerance - instantly? Why was I healed if sciatica instantly? Why have my children been blessed with these same type of blessings? Why is hearing the words of a doctor "It is a miracle" a common statement for me?"

.
The snarky reply is "you're so effin' special, that's why". Then again, some people do seem to live a charmed life, constantly beating the odds with little or no input on their part.

Then there are those who, if something can go wrong it will. Individuals who seem to just slog along, bumbling from one day to the next, doing what they can to not sink into the abyss sucking at their feet.

(I've met individuals who fit both extremes.)

While the vast majority of us are somewhere in the middle of this continuum.

But note -- "beating the odds" is NOT a miracle. And, *your* charmed life has NO relevance to the rest of us. Period. (So, keep your book to yourself...)

No miracles yet. If WAYSEER actually had a miracle, he wouldn't be so hesitant to share it.

"Post your Miracles here"

Ok,
They can sometimes be long stories because I have to give some details so you can grasp the "Miracle part" in it's entirely.

Before I start, I want to tell one little story.. I was in Branson MO, and had only been living there about 9 months or so, I had made a couple of friends from the church I was going to. And after I dropped my daughter off at the Springfield airport, I decided to drop by to a friends place of business that I had met at church, for the first time, as I had never been out that far before (lol only about a 45 minutes drive from Branson).

We visited over some coffee and Biscotti and was pleasant, she told me about a miracle that experienced, about how she came to know the Lord.

I was happy to see her eyes light up as she told me the story. So when she was done, I shared one of my miracle experiences with her - and she was just as excited to hear about it. I then said, I am considering of writing a book, consisting of just Miracles, ones I have experienced and ones of people whom I know have experienced. She looked at me hard and straight with no smile. And said, "Why YOU??? What makes you so special that you receive all these miracles?"

Well, I did not have an answer. So when I left, as I was driving home I pondered those words... WHY ME?

Why have I been spared from fatal car accidents? Or being lost in the middle of the desert with no food or water and no way to get help with a flat tire?? Etc... Why was I healed of cancer with no treatments? Why was I healed of gluten intolerance - instantly? Why was I healed if sciatica instantly? Why have my children been blessed with these same type of blessings? Why is hearing the words of a doctor "It is a miracle" a common statement for me?

The answer is I DON'T KNOW. Am I good? Not really.
I am not bad, but certainly no saint or angel. I do genuinely care about and love people. I do help others when I can. I do make sacrifices for others.

But, I am a sinner. I will occasionally cuss when I get mad. I occasionally smoke cigarettes. Sometimes a lot and sometimes not at all. I am not addicted. I just choose to smoke sometimes. I have had pre-marital sex, I have drank alcohol on occasion to where I need someone to drive me home. No I am not a GOOD person - according to the standards of most "Christians".
But I have never set out to hurt anyone, cheat anyone, or bring harm or misfortune to anyone either.

I do love God, and I do know He is real, and He has proved it to me over and over.

Why Me? I DON'T KNOW!?

So with that said, when I get around to writing out one of my miracles, keep in mind, I am just an ordinary person who happens to not only believe in God, but Know He is real.

I have heard "true" miracle stories by several Jewish people and by 2 Muslim people. I have heard about 5 miracle stories from Christians.

I believe that anyone whatever their faith, can receive miracles. The only ones I have not heard miracles from - are total non-believers. So that being the only common denominator - I think there is a connection... perhaps?

Thank you for sharing your story.

Did you know that Saul/Paul is also of the tribe of Benjamin?

They do, by telling me I must be crazy or by simply not believing them. Which really is sad because I think when people not only believe in miracles but EXPECT them, you receive them.

I do not understand the reasoning behind that of course. There are some things that are just unexplainable.

I have several... A couple were published in the Angels on Earth Magazine. (that is a monthly publication) and people write in their miracle stories.

And if they (the publishers) feel it was a miracle, then they publish them.

"Therefore, from among 2.5 billion Christians worldwide there must be an abundance of spectacular, verified miracles. Let's hear about them. I am speaking of genuine miracles here, defined as events for which there is NO possible natural explanation, and backed by solid evidence (not just anecdotal hearsay)."

My father knew when my grandmother died in a dream from halfway around the world. I was there with him that night. Perhaps that is only an evidence of spirituality and the existence of a connection beyond the physical. Still the man is a Christian. So I thought I'd throw it in for the heck of it.

Last year I was told by an Angel that I was a Jew of the tribe of the Benjamin. I checked my father and mothers lines and noticed that my father , unknown to either of them, was Jewish by halacha according the birth records and a long line of matrilineal and patrilineal descent. I further investigated where the tribe of Benjamin was today in modern times and the first thing that popped up was a claim that the Benjamites were among the Hispanics. I checked into my mothers side was told that she also has Middle Eastern heritage and found that she carries Jewish names from both her father and her mother was born in a part of Mexico known for its Sephardi Jewish influences (that part about my mother was very recent, just a few weeks ago).

Just things I consider to be miracles. Perhaps not as grandiose as some would like or expect but they certainly seemed fairly miraculous from my perspective. If you don't believe me I understand.

For the record, despite being a Christian I do believe that other religions/faiths have experienced a degree of spirituality of some kind

>>I have the NO POSSIBLE EXPLANATION MIRACLE STORY(S)<<

Then I would certainly like to hear them. If there is no possible explanation, then there is no way anyone could trample on them.

"But I see that in Celsus' eyes, my miracle will be discounted too. "

That is why people do not post them, why cast our pearls to the ones who will trample on them?
