I Believe

I believe…

... that Jesus died on the cross for my sins
…that a hot cup of coffee tastes much better when someone else makes it
…that there is a reason I am here, that my actions can make a difference
…in the power of our words and their impact, regardless if spoken or written
…in forgiveness, especially to those who you do not want to forgive
…in first impressions, they are important
…that our families are of ultimate importance
…in believing there is only one Higher Power and it's Jesus Christ
…in true love and that it can be both pragmatic and romantic
…that life is too short not to enjoy it
…in being honest, trustworthy and accountable
…in the power of shared prayers each morning
…in order to be true to others, one must be true to themselves
…that everyone needs to relax and let loose occasionally
…that what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger
…in quiet time alone doing whatever I enjoy
…in the joys from snuggling and cuddling
…that if it is meant to be it will be, in time
…that reading is the access to other worlds
…that everyone deserves a second chance
…in the power of intuition, it’s rarely wrong
…in do unto others, as you would have others do unto you
…that bonds of love can be just as strong as blood ties
…in giving for the sake of giving, because it’s the right thing to do
…that trust can be broken by one small lie at a time
…that most hurts can be mended with sincere apologies
…that the power of prayer is the strongest thing on earth
…that a good night sleep is restoring
…in a good cry, and a brief pity party are needed at times to help heal
…in letting go of old pains, and remembering only the good times
…in time spent staring into the ocean waves is good therapy
…in love at first sight and that it can last a lifetime
…that life is all about what you make it
…in apologizing when wrong, and not being stubborn about it
…that we are stronger as one than we are apart
…that we hurt when the one we love is hurting
...that time spent with children can change your view of the world
…that miracles happen every minute each day
…that my daily quiet time with God is very important
…in having good days if you want them bad enough
…in the strength of women who are true friends
…in weekly date nights to keep romance alive
…in meaning what you say, and saying what you mean
…in tender romantic kisses with the one you love for no special reason
…in picking myself up again whenever I fall down and starting over
…in never forgetting where you came from
…that with time all wounds can be healed, no matter how deep
…in long hot bubble baths no matter how old we get
…in being honorable, our name is something we should take pride in
…that laughter is one of the best medicines
…in genuine unconditional love

What do you believe in?

    it's easy ...i believe that life is a destination ..and how you get there depends on the speedbumps along the way, and how you deal with them ...i believe that sometimes things are misconstrued and you hurt people that you didn't mean to hurt ...and when that happens, you need to step back and see if the relationship is worth salvaging ....i believe that God loves us and cares for us, and gives us challenges in life, but in the end, he forgives us for our mistakes. I believe the world would be a better place if people did that also.

  2. I believe that if I turn my will and life over to a Higher Power Then I have peace and serenity.

  3. Wonderful post! I believe that I believe in all you believe in. Thanks for stating it for me!

    Have a wonderful, wonderful day doing what you believe in.


  4. Debi: You'd be welcome to sit on the porch with me and have tea and banana bread!

    Have a great weekend!


  5. Great post! Love the first one...coffee being better when made by someone else! I feel the same way about a great pot of tea!

  6. Debi,
    Thanks for your comment and lovely words. I was glad to hear from you. I hope that you all are doing well and that Eric is doing good with his new liver. It is always nice to hear back from people who I haven't heard from in a while. Good health to both of you.
