From an icy slope, a medical miracle emerges

That’s a fantastic story! Though, it would be better without the word “Miracle” in the title, considering it was the doctor’s and a lot of luck that saved her.

In this context I don’t think the word miracle is referring to some act of God for her being alive now.  The word is used pretty liberally nowadays to indicate something that was previously thought impossible, such as in this case someone surviving for that length of time with that low a body temperature and without oxygen.  No religious meaning or connection to the big guy above.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

Unless you chose to believe so, of course.
