  • To me, I guess, magic is pulling a rabbit out of a hat, or making an entire school bus disappear. A miracle is something that happens, despite the odds. Like a person being cured of a horrible disease, even though docs. say it's too late, someone walking again after an accident even though they have been told they never will, a person waking from a coma after yrs., or someone who is totally down and out and at rock bottom financially, winning the lotto. (Or like, your kid cleaning their room the right way, w/o being asked. Getting along for an entire day w/ your in-laws............LOL)

  • I like happyendings explanation! To me, magic is someone actually performing a ritual or something trying to make something happen. Not like praying because IMO that would fall into the miracle category, like praying for a miracle.

  • Like first reply, a miracle is magic.

  • Magic is due to trickery and/or slight of hand.
    Miracles are divine intervention.

  • Magic is a human thing & a Miracle is a God thing.
