This I Believe

I believe that Christmas celebrates a baby’s cry of heaven’s gift.

I believe that only by God’s presence can weights be lift.

I believe that tears teach us of faith and hope, and love and joy.

This I believe, This I believe.

I believe that Bible words inspire actions not arguing.

I believe that through our needs we learn to lean and humbly cling.

I believe that laughter, hugs and giggles are gifts to us to cherish most.

This I believe, This I believe.

I believe prayer is the Holy Spirit’s whispers with less words from us.

I believe the resurrection Easter story more important than Christmas.

I believe the closeness of family helps find life’s compass when all is lost.

This I believe, This I believe

I believe that friends are those who lift our loads and walk beside.

I believe our hardest mission is showing Christ’s love to those who chide.

I believe agape love is unloving actions being repaid with unexpected love.

This I believe, This I believe.


Merry Christmas to each of you.

Sent with love, Ann
