A thought about miracles

"Miracle of the Spring"

The miracles of the church seem to me to rest not so much on faces or voices or healing power suddenly near to us from afar off, but upon our perceptions being made finer, so that for a moment our eyes can see and our ears can hear what is there about us always.

-- Willa Cather

Suppose we made it an objective to cultivate our perceptions so that they become more fine tuned. What might we see that we've been missing?
