Today's Beautiful Gem: `The Miracles' by M. Udayakala.

"God performs miracles every day and every minute:
The cry of the new-born baby,
The laughter of the flowers,
The song of the birds,
The contentment of the dead man,
The chiaroscuro of Life and Death,
The kaleidoscope of Joy and Sorrow--
God performs miracles every day and every minute.

"He does not perform magic tricks to make us believe;
She does not mesmerise us with visions unreal;
It does not manifest in phenomena supernatural.
God wishes us to have Faith, Love, Belief and Devotion.

"God is interested in our acts and our miracles;
Feeding the hungry babies with milk,
Wiping the tears of the lonely and the lost,
Handshakes amongst adherents of all faiths,
Renouncing war and championing peace,
Hoping for a better morrow and working for it
With Love for all God's creations--
God is interested in these and other miracles of ours."
