Miracles Really do Happen

When I was eight years old me and my older sister was out side playing with fireworks. It was the day before 4th of July and we were really excited. My mom told me that I was too little to play with bottle rockets I would get hurt. I wanted to so bad because my older sister was and I wanted to be just like her. When my mom went inside to use the bathroom I grabbed a bottle rocket out of the bag lit it and threw it. At the time my sister had no idea that I grabbed a bottle rocket and threw it. Then I didn’t know where the bottle rocket went so I moved over the side and all of a sudden I thought I had something in my eye. I didn’t know it but when it happened I threw the lighter. When I rubbed it I had blood all over me. Then that is when I new I got hit in the eye with a bottle rocket.

This I believe: miracles really do happen. I believe that miracles happened because when I got hit in the eye with a bottle rocket I didn’t lose my eye sight. I have only lost a small part of my vision. When I was at the hospital there was a boy there with me that had the same thing happen but he lost the whole use of his eye. I think that is a true miracle because the same thing happened to both of us but I have the full use of my eye and he lost his completely. I believe that it is a miracle because then same thing happen to both of us but two different things happen. The miracle is that god didn’t want me to lose my eye sight.

Miracles happened everyday in today’s society. A miracle is an extraordinary event taken as a sign of the supernatural power of God. Miracles happened everyday like when doctors suddenly find a cure for a disease that they have been trying to cure for many of years. Also when a 2 pound baby is born and they some how finds the strength to make it threw. Or when some one is thrown from and car and left in the cold with broke bones and internal damage and still lives. That is why I believe that miracles happened everyday in today’s society.
