It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 9, Page 29, Book 14


To Believe

To believe... is to know that every day is a new beginning.
It is to trust that miracles happen,
And dreams really do come true.

To believe... is to see Angels dancing among the clouds,
To know the wonder of a stardust sky,
And the wisdom of the man in the moon.

To believe... is to know the value of a nurturing heart,
The innocence of a child's eyes and the beauty of an aging hand,
For it is through their teachings we learn to love.

To believe... is to find the strength
And courage that lies within us.
When it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again.

To believe... is to know we are not alone,
That life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it.

To believe... is to know that wonderful surprises
Are just waiting to happen,
And all our hopes and dreams are within reach.
If only we believe.

I am a believer.  I believe and those beliefs make what and who I am.  I found this list that pretty much sums up a lot of my beliefs so I thought I share it with you all today.

I believe—
that we don't have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
 
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.
 
I believe—
that true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance. Same goes for true love.
 
I believe—
that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
 
I believe—
that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.
 
I believe—
that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
 
I believe—
that you can keep going long after you can't.
 
I believe—
that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
 
I believe—
that either you control your attitude or it controls you.
 
I believe—
that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place.
 
I believe—
that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
 
I believe—
that money is a lousy way of keeping score.
 
I believe—
that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.
 
I believe—
that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down, will be the ones to help you get back up.
 
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.
 
I believe—
that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
 
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.
 
I believe—
that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
 
I believe—
that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.
 
I believe—
that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.
 
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.
 
I believe—
that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.
 
I believe—
that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
 
I believe—
that your life can be changed in a matter of hours by people who don't even know you.
 
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.
 
I believe—
that credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.
 
I believe—
that the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon.



I believe that somewhere in the darkest night, a candle glows. I believe for everyone who goes astray, someone will come to show the way. I believe, I believe.

man to TT, I think of the Beatles song of long ago, "Imma Believer" but I take it in the sense you are talking, cause we are Believers.

Love it...
