Milagros

On a little island in the Caribbean, in a small town lived a very beautiful girl named Milagros.  It appeared here to be the beginning of fairy tale, as Milagros’ beauty charmed everyone.  The birds surrounded her in the morning and sung ever so amazing and brilliant as if it were a celebration each and every day, a choir introducing a new era or kingdom to come.  Even to the other ladies she met--Milagros was not a threat--despite the fact that the few men who worked the island were always in short supply.  Everyone was simply awed and inspired by her brilliant and celestial beauty and spirit of elegance.  And her continual and persistent need to help others in the community, especially the elderly of her community: at times shopping for some that could no longer do it for themselves, Milagros created programs that would bring the youth of the island closer to their elder neighbors in order to better care for them.  In all things, putting the people of the island to better use to care for one another.  Milagros would even sit on the beach some days during the week to look up at the stars and all the many heavenly bodies, and discuss with the people so very eager to learn the matters of their wonderful Creator God Jesus who came to earth to give his life for them, and best learn to give thanks to him for all the many blessing on the island, such as all the many fruits and vegetables of the farms, and the forest and all the many animals of the farms; along with the many fishing boats and the many varieties of fresh foods they enjoyed each day.  And for their homes and the roofs over their heads that kept them all safe from the sometimes (but not very often) cold rainy days and nights.  And for the blessing of their families and friends and the sun that gave them life each and every day on the island which so much depended on its gentle rays shining down on all the wonderful green vegetation, which in turn, all appeared to be constantly racing towards the sun.  "All things had a reason under heaven Milagros told the people who had many questions about God."  And all things must work for good for those that truly love him, for our God cannot really understand anything but love, as love is all that God is made of.
