When Does a Miracle Begin?
Join the Newsletter Mailing List
There are no words to express the Tsunami's terrifying world tragedy.
It deeply affects all our lives.
This newsletter's focus is to offer hope in a world that appears to have turned upside down in the last week.
I know many of us want to help in S. E. Asia, and many have, but we must remember that we are needed in our own communities too.
We can all make a difference...
we can shine our light in
our very own corner of the world...
to touch and affect lives.
Miracles take a lot of divine preparation and timing as evident in the next few stories.
Hopefully the miraculous experiences I experienced on Christmas Eve will also leave you questioning, "When does a miracle begin?" because the two I had in a few hours left me in wonder!
Cottage Grove's small town's radio station owner asked Jim if he would fill in and host their Christmas Eve radio show from 5-9 PM.
The station owner could not find anyone else to take over the evening show due to their staff's family holiday commitments.
And...in a small town, always the same core people volunteer to fill in on many jobs...so Jim said, "Yes."
Jim had no idea what he would do for four hours LIVE on the air because it was his first opportunity to be host on a live radio show.
He thought he would play some Christmas music.
For inspiration he entered one of Cottage Grove's bookstores and found, "A Christmas Filled With Miracles." (By a really famous author hehehe.)
Jim is proud owner of "Expect Miracles" and on the spot he decided to read Christmas miracles on the air.
Jim emailed me in Tacoma for permission to read, "A Christmas Filled With Miracles" on the radio.
I emailed him back that I would be in Cottage Grove on Christmas Eve and would he like me to partner with him and help read stories to the listeners?
Even though, I had not been home for almost two months, I thought if the show can touch one life, inspire one person, make someone happy on Christmas Eve...then the show would be worth more than money could buy.
Jim was thrilled to have me in the studio with him for his FIRST night doing a talk radio show!
So far, everything seemed normal, almost like an adventure, but nothing like the miracle that was about to unfold!
Jim and I read story after story, we shared personal miracles... and did not have one caller.
Often this happens during my shows, as folks want to hear the miracles and do not want to interrupt the stories.
But, at times it does leave the folks in the radio station wondering, "Is anyone listening?"
Jim reassured me that KNND AM1400 has very loyal listeners, and these folks would be hearing us.
When I arrived home, as I munched on the freshly backed holiday cookies, my husband and daughter had made while listening to us on the radio, I felt like Santa's helper, as if my four hours had helped create new home town memories.
That night, as I lay in bed listening to Coast-to-Coast radio show's guest, a friend of mine, author Rosemary Ellen Guiley discuss Angels and miracles.
I thought, "Drats, I have just dedicated four hours to a small station, when maybe no one was listening...and Rosemary has world wide exposure."
Not very spiritual, but human, nonetheless, because my dream has always been to touch as many people as possible with my uplifting miracles and good news stories as Rosemary was currently doing.
But, I knew that if it was possible for Rosemary to be on Coast-to- Coast, then it is also possible for me.
We never know whose lives we touch.
Two days later I received a phone call from a crying lady.
She said, "Oh, I am so glad I found you!
"I remembered the name of your radio station KNND.
"I kept thinking it stood for the word "kind!"
"You saved my life!"
"I was driving from Spokane, Washington to Eureka, California on Christmas Eve with my fifteen year old daughter screaming and swearing at me the entire trip!
"I was upset, distraught and feeling suicidal.
"She wanted to drive over the snowy mountain pass and yelled at me the entire trip.
"We pulled into Cottage Grove, I lay down on our hotel bed and reached over and put on the radio.
"Your show had just started.
"I lay there on Christmas Eve listening to your miracles and it saved my life!
Dearest Readers, okay, so at least three people were listening after all!
You do not need a huge audience to make a miracle happen for someone.
You can create miracles being who you are, sharing your skills.
Just show up when Spirit/God brings you an opportunity to help in a positive way.
Jim's intention for the show was to do something unique for our little town.
Jim never thought he would be the vehicle to saving a life on Christmas Eve...neither did I!
I emailed Jim for his phone number, so I could relate this miracle to him in person.
Here is his responding email.
I checked my email and noticed the time!
It is 1:11!
AND...the only email at that time was YOURS!
Mary Ellen you are so right on the triple numbers!
Even an Angel Scribe has moments
of doubts and this shows you...you
never know when you will touch
I wish you a year of health and miracles!

She telephoned me on Christmas Eve, on the way to the radio station, with this amazing report.
Apparently, Linda wrote asking Zaneta for her last two available dogs....AND guess what Linda's last name is!!!
Drum roll please.....her name is; Linda Miracle!
And as Zaneta says, "This was an extraordinary time, a most Sacred Christmas!"
