Of Moments and Miracles: A Collection of Ordinary People's Extraordinary Stories
If you are likely to be offended by that four letter word, the "F" word, and believe that the word "God" should not to appear in the same story as "that" word, then this book might be offensive to you. These stories are about life's realities; the good and bad, the beautiful and ugly, the cowardly and courageous, joy and pain, tragedy and optimism; in essence, the human condition. Mostly, it is filled with love, hope, and faith in their actions, not simply the words. It is about ordinary people, people just like you, ordinary heroes, who live their lives without public recognition, never really knowing how their daily perseverance and their courageous attitude inspires and lifts the spirit and burdens of their fellow human beings.
