From the time I created this page for Bonnie's family earlier this year, I wanted to make a page like this.
Then Patricia's This I Believe challenge came up a few weeks ago and I've been thinking about it more since.
Then Katie's gorgeous Color Challenge paper inspired me and tipped me right over the edge to finally doing it!

the journaling, which is a short summary of my faith:


I believe . . .


The Bible is the inspired, infallible word of God. Therefore, it is His Word and everything in it is
the absolute truth. God created the heavens and the earth, and all life. He is and always was and always will be. He is all-powerful and all-knowing.


Jesus the Christ is the Son of God. Fully God, yet fully man. He humbled Himself to be one of us for the purpose of paying the randsom for our guilt and thus, reconciling us to God. The salvation He offers is a free gift to any and all who ask.


We were created to worship God. He is worthy of our praise. We can worship Him in song, prayer, fellowship, service, and in studying His Word as well as with our whole lives; at home, at work, and at play.


God's greatest commandments are that we love Him and no other gods and that we love one another.
