Credit where it's due

First, let me lead off by saying I have always liked Randy Travis as a singer and hope he continues to recover. That said...
Travis' wife, Mary Davis-Travis, spoke about the numerous procedures and operations the Grammy-winning singer underwent to save his life and a six-month stay in the hospital after a viral infection caused his 2013 stroke.

"Randy stared death in the face, but death blinked," Davis-Travis said. "Today, God's proof of a miracle stands before you."

God's proof of a miracle? Or the the proof of medical intervention and treatment? Did God heal him with a miracle? No. It took "numerous procedures and operations" and a long "stay in the hospital". That's what passes for a miracle nowadays?

I'd get so annoyed at certain relatives to whom I'd bring vegetables from our garden when we went to stay with them a few days, and at mealtime they'd thank [their deity] for the produce. Hey, WE did all the bleepin' work raising, harvesting and hauling the stuff to them!

Yep. Someone on the news here was saying how god had saved some family members when their small plane crashed. I just wondered where god was right before the plane went down. Maybe he could have prevented the crash and kept the family dog from being killed.

Coincidentally, while we were away, Will Shortz had the following puzzle on NPR's Sunday Weekend Edition (just starting to catch up on the Interwebz now!):
