    "I Believe"

    Birth Certificate shows that we were born
    A Death Certificate shows that we died
    Pictures show that we lived!
    Have a seat . Relax . . .
    And read this slowly.

    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.

    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 think 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 heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it
    needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

    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 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 you shouldn't be so eager to find
    Out a secret. It could change your life Forever.

    I Believe....
    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.

    Amen Brother! We all strive and we all fall short at one time or another. We just have to keep on truckin' and do the best we know how to do. Learn from our mistakes, learn from others, forgive ourselves, and forgive others. :)

    Just to let everyone know. I didn't come up with these tid-bits of information. I am a little to ignorant. This was e-mailed to me. There's some thought provoking stuff there! Enjoy!

    I believe,

    Welfare should be rationed and earned.
    English should be spoken fluently and primarily by all citizens
    Everyone should serve their country.
    Gasoline and Diesel should be dog gone cheap for how much we have spent to protect it
    Theives should lose a hand when caught
    CEO's should lose their heads when caught
    Respect for each other should be valued more
    Politically correct should be disallowed. Sticks and stones
    Public hangings cure pedophiles and rapists
    Moles, gophers and poison oak should be irradicated permanately
    The pledge of alegiance should be recited at all schools. Yep even mosques

    Among other things!

    I believe:

    We are all of once race
    Elijah never died
    Moses did cross the red sea on dry land
    My sins have been forgiven
    I will see my creator when I die
