Some things I believe

A Birth Certificate shows that we were born.
A Death Certificate shows that we died

Pictures show that we live!

image029.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that just because two people argue,

it doesn’t mean they don’t love each other;
and just because they don’t argue,
it doesn’t mean they do love each other.
image030.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that we don’t have to change friends
 

if we understand that friends change.

image031.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that no matter how good a friend is,
they’re going to hurt you,
every once in a while;
and you must forgive them for that.
image032.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.

The same applies to true love.
image033.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.
image034.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that it’s taking me a long time
to become the person I want to be.
image035.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that you should always leave loved ones with loving words.

It may be the last time you see them.
image036.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that you can keep going long after you think you can’t.
image037.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
That we are responsible for what
we do, no matter how we feel.
image038.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that either you control your attitude
 

or it controls you.

image039.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe….
that heroes are the people
who do what has to be done
when it needs to be done,

regardless of the consequences.
image040.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe….
that my friends and I

can do anything or nothing
and have the best time
..
image041.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
That sometimes people you may expect to kick you when you’re
 

down will be the ones to help you get back up.

image042.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that sometimes when I’m angry
I have the right to be angry, but that
doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.
image043.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you’ve had
and what you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.
image044.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
That it isn’t always enough,
to be forgiven by others.

Sometimes, you have to learn
to forgive yourself.
image045.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
That no matter how bad
your heart is broken,

the world doesn’t stop for your grief.
image046.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
That our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are; but,
we are responsible for who we become.
image047.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that you shouldn’t be
so eager to find out a secret.
It could change your life forever.
image048.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
Two people can look at the exact same
thing and see something totally different.
image049.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that your life can be changed
in a matter of hours
by people who don’t even know you.
image050.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that even when you think
you have no more to give,
when a friend cries out to you,
you will find the strength to help.
image051.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that credentials on the wall
do not make you a decent human being.
image052.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that the people you care about
most in life are taken from you too soon.
image053.jpg@01CBBBD1.236BFDF0 I Believe…
that you should know that God loves you no matter how much you feel you have failed or how successful you become
.

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.

Eating fish
We all know that when you eat fish you will usually come across a bone or two no matter how carefully the fish has been filleted.  We also know that the bones aren't digestible and should be spit out.  Fish bones, in fact, can be dangerous; but that fact never kept me from eating and appreciating

A history lesson
Over the past months, I've discovered the classics from Sir Walter Scott, James Fenimore Cooper, St. Augustine to Andrew Murray.  Of course, most of these volumes were written in the early 1800's.  Unlocking the labyrinth of historical fact wrapped around the old English prose of that earlier cent
