Do you believe in miracles?

What is a miracle?

According to Wikipedia,
'A miracle is an event attributed to divine intervention. Sometimes an event is also attributed (in part) to a miracle worker, saint, or religious leader. A miracle is sometimes thought of as a perceptible interruption of the laws of nature. Others suggest that God may work with the laws of nature to perform what people perceive as miracles [1] Theologians say that, with divine providence, God regularly works through created nature yet is free to work without, above, or against it as well.'

The Bible is full of stories of miracles happening - turning water to wine, dead man rising, blind seeing, lame walking and so on. 

In the world we live in today, many Christians believe miracles are still happening and attribute it to the special grace of God. Some other groups just don't believe and try to 'logicalize' using scientific findings to justify why certain things have occurred. Some arguments are so convincing that you begin to ponder and  wonder.....

I personally believe that miracles do happen. It might not be in the same earth-moving proportions as the past, but things are happening. God-driven events. Remarkable events. Unexplainable events. Good things....

I've got to keep believing in miracles anyway, because it's that anticipation of a miracle happening that makes life so much more exciting.....What would the alternative be?
