I am a miracle myself , I enjoy , every minute of it. and enjoy that is written , that for some reason our Creator knows how many hairs we ot in our head , and the not even a single leaf moves or fall from a tree if OUR HEAVENLY FATHER knows , why the word shabbat got the name of ABBA in between , why the words in the
fourth Mitzvah about the Shabbat have more words of any of them , 67 if I do not counted wrong , why believe its so important, ´cause if you do not believe , you do not exist . Believe as I preach the faith is to get in a room , or an office , or garage , that is dark , what you want is light , , you go and look for the switch , that is faith turn your switc in your life , Adonai t z vaoot is the miracle of our lifes , His Presence is with us , and if turn to Him He will take us back , selah , ahmen B´Midbar 6 24-26

A meaningful, productive video

All well said, excellent Video !!! At this point of of time I can think of a famous saying Miracles can happen for people who prove they really want it, and are willing to put the necessary work to get it.

you were used as you were needed to be used~~

Miracles do happen all the time--Ha'Shem's way of being visible in our lives, even if the event isn't noticed or appreciated. Thank you for this lovely video w/its powerful message--it's excellent! May each of us re-member this, be willing to look for the most positive & loving way to interpret anything that occurs in our lives.

why oil does not mix with water , , that is the differnce between believers and unbelievers , one of my children were in a medical emergency room , and the Doctor that was on duty in that place,in that day , we live in town in Peru eventhough was the hospital and everything in Peru , ready , but his mother start shocking and we took her to the emergency medical post , and at the time of arrival , the doctor on duty , told us that the baby passed away in the womb of his mother , but the miracle was that day was a tramsportation strike , and was not transport , and the roads blocked , so the doctors , about 7 physicians , were hold there , so they were there , and one of them run to the emergency with a wooden stethoscope , something that you don´t see often and put it in the womb , and scream this baby is alife , send for two chocolates , and told his mother to swallowed in a hurry , and send her to the maternity ward , and there were the other 6 , a Surgeon , a Pedriatician , a Ginecologist , 2 Obstetrician , General Medicine Doctor, all 7 were there , the baby got two circulares laces around his neck and was suffocation. and not even with caesarean , he will not make it , they work almost two hours of labor and was delivered , it was purple and cried , as he was giving thanks to his creator , He is a miracle his name is LevMach´er , already did his BarMitzvah and is eager to o and serve the IDF, So wonder miracle , that those 7 Physicians , were stacked
