Do you believe miracles are possible?

One of Dora Jackson’s beliefs is that "what we call miracles is just what's supposed to happen." What seemingly miraculous events occur in the novel? Do you believe miracles are possible?

This is a tough one. I'd like to think so, but perhaps we MAKE them happen by keeping an open heart and mind to life's continuing possibilities.

RE: Do you believe miracles are possible?

I'd like to believe miracles are possible. I hope they are. It sure seemed like a miracle occurred when Richmond placed Odette under the wrong tree. According to science, the doctors, she shouldn't have lived through the day. To go from that diagnosis to feeling like she could walk in such a short period of time is pretty miraculous. Even Eleanor thought she was a goner.

Yes! I have seen them, and they have happened to me -- small and large. You have to be open to Grace.

I do believe in miracles. I've had miracles happen to me - things that absolutely cannot be explained any other way.

I think that it depends on how you define a miracle. If one is looking for someone to walk on water or turn water to wine they will be very disappointed. The birth of my children was certainly a miracle; at times, just waking up everyday can be a miracle. I agree with everyone here. You have to be open and believe

They are possible. A miracle is an event that is of the divine. And anyone with faith of any kind will believe in a development that has no scientific or natural explanation would be a miracle.

RE: Do you believe miracles are possible?

Miracles are possible - they just aren't always what we expect them to be. We may not prevent a loved one from dying but there might be something else that seems miraculous. (Let me digree for a moment and recommend a book written by a female physician: To Heaven and Back - - and pay attention to a scene having to do with a pear tree in the latter part of the book) I definitely agree with Suzanne. Miracles are not the domain of only one faith/religion.

I think miracles are possible, but not probable. The laws of nature apply to things that happen in our world, and I believe they happen for a scientific reason more than they do for a "religious" reason. And those happenings may not be explainable by scientists...yet.

Like some others, I think it depends on what you are calling a miracle. A child being born? Miracle. Sometimes people are supposedly healed but is that a miracle or is there another explanation?

I believe that Odette was right when she said miracles are just things that were supposed to happen.
