Don't let reality hold you back

Do you believe in miracles?
I am one; a couple times over.
Miracles happen because someone stops listening to reality and dares to dream. Faith+determination+love=mirac
le just about every time. (though it may not be the miracle you were asking for)
Sometimes you have to just not listen to your logical brain and hope for something more than what seems possible, you'll be surprised what happens!
We have 2 cars because I work about 60 miles away from where my fiance works. I work 15 miles north of where we live, he works 45 miles south of where we live. We both have to be at work before buses would be able to get us there. My fiance's car is breaking down and the parts we need to fix it cost more than what we paid for the car, and more than we'll have anytime in the future. If his car dies one of us won't be able to go to work. I work less but make more money because his child support takes half of his pay check. If he stops working he'll keep falling behind in child support if I stop working we won't be able to afford to live. Needless to say we were worried. I took a deep breath and told my fiance to not worry, God has always provided we'll have a way to make this work. Yesterday we were literally given a car for free. It doesn't run right now (it doesn't have a battery in it) but it appears to be in decent shape and my uncle is a mechanic so there's a good possibility that we can fix it up and get it going for much cheaper than it would be to repair our current car.
Miracles in the making. :)
I also consider when I was in a car accident and had to have an emergency c-section with my second son and the doctor took him out and the only thing I heard was the doctor saying, "Come on, just breathe" about my newborn son. All I did was close my eyes and asked God, "Please" and I heard his little cry. (I get teary eyed just thinking of that moment).
Thank you God for listening, guiding, and answering and a special thank you for reminding me that miracles do happen and the only thing holding them back is reality.
