The miraculous every day


dropletThank you to all of you who got in touch to find how my thumbs are healing (see last week’s Mindful Monday here). Indeed it is amazing that they have healed so quickly. A miracle?

I looked up a C S Lewis quotation mentioned by someone at last week’s Essence mindfulness gathering.

Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.

It is when we practice – intentionally – looking around us that we begin to glimpse miracles. Often – surprisingly – in the every day.

Maybe as we practice seeing the small things, we get closer to seeing the big things – and maybe, just maybe, the big things are actually the small things . . .

Thank you to Jo Crouch for the photograph – you are amazing at observing the detail in the every day.

This is Mindful Monday on Monday 24 June 2019.

Join Julie Hill and Sara Shailer for an evening of mindfulness at the Oasis in Cheltenham on Monday 8 July. To book your place, email
