I Believe

I Believe
I believe…

I draw each breath by the grace of God.

that each day is a gift, not promised to any one of us.

in Santa Claus, he is the giving that is within each of us.

that each of us has a purpose...which makes me purpose driven.

He hears every one of my prayers and answers all of them.

in things I cannot see with my eyes because I can feel them in my heart.

that every person has good in them…
sometimes it is just buried so deep that no one can see it.

that slow poke in front of me going down the road is an angel,
slowing me down, putting me in my place, making me rethink life.

in being silly.

that laughter is good for one’s soul and the soul will live on.

that art is an expression of talent…good and bad.

that we should not believe everything we see.

in my efforts, whether they achieve much or fail.

that spring is a new beginning and a time of rebirth.

in the home, build on a foundation of a higher spirit.

that a smile can travel all the way into your heart.

that forgiveness is the beginning of healing.

that lessons learned the hard way build character with morals.

I believe that I’m exactly where I am supposed to be.

Then Jesus told him, "Because you have seen me, you have believed;
blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed." ~John 20:29 NIV

"No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true." ~Cinderella
