Gage County Relay for Life 2011 - I've Seen Miracles

Let me just start out by saying that I am not a public speaker and the thought of giving a presentation to a large group simply terrifies me. Recently I was honored when asked to be the featured speaker at the 2011 Gage County Relay for Life. Terror immediately set in, but along with the terror came a sense of honor, and the feeling that this was something I needed to do. As I hung up the phone, my brain was clicking away and I knew what I wanted to talk about – Miracles! We all see things that just seem too coincidental, but many of us do not consider them to be miracles. I see miracles every day and when they happen, it give me a sense of peace, knowing that God is with us, helping with the little things as well as the big things. Attached is a link to video taken at the Relay for Life event, with my talk beginning at the 6:44 mark. I estimate there were 400+ people there, way more than any other presentation I have ever given.
