My Miracles Use Cell Phones


One calls just because

he was thinking of me.


Another, to say he’s concerned

about someone,

is helping any way he can,

and asks if I will pray, knowing I already am.


Another to cry, to weep deep,

over children being killed in war

because it’s OK to cry with me.


Another to say, “Thank you, Mom.”


These miracles care about

making a difference.

They don’t care

about getting a better car

or better clothes.


They spend their money on groceries

for someone else,

plan trips to other countries

to do what they can to help.


Sometimes I think

the world doesn’t deserve them.

I don’t deserve them.

But that’s what the best miracles do.


They show up,

undeserved, because of love,

and make a difference.
