According to many religions, a miracle, derived from the old Latin word miraculum meaning 'something wonderful', is a striking interposition of divine intervention by God in the universe by which the ordinary course and operation of Nature is overruled, suspended, or modified. Although many texts and people confirm witnessing or prophecize various events which they refer to as 'miraculous', there are no scientifically confirmed occurrences of miracles. People in different faiths have substantially different definitions of the word miracle. Even within a specific religion there is often more than one usage of the term.
Today I feel as though I've witnessed a miracle, one that I've prayed and prayed for. The beginning of the year 2007 couldn't have been more perfect!
