(Picture taken by my husband)

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.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. -- Hebrews 11:1

Great poem. Hope and dreams..what two more peaceful words. They envoke exactly what they say. Dare to dream, dare to hope. There are dreams I have never let go off, and hopes that I will not ever let go of.
Is faith not hope? and hope not faith? Faith is the believing in things hoped for but not yet seen.
Sorry for the long post the poem
God Bless

First off i have to say... awwwww my little brother was here and commented! Tears came to my eyes, and my heart swelled with love for him. Hugs Micheal, I love you lots, and hope also that we can all get together soon. You are missed very much.

I am so glad that all that have commented on this post enjoyed the poem and the picture. Belief, faith, hope all are entwined together in my opinion. With out these in ones life, life becomes dull, and meaningless......

Hugs and blessings sent to you all!

Hi Tracy:
I really enjoyed your visit and comment. And let your husband know that I think that’s a great looking Sunset, it will probably be many more moons before he gets another shot like that!
I’m beginning to feel a little guilty for neglecting my blog, but I’ve been meeting myself coming back, if you know what I mean…… Jo’s been doing a good job of keeping everyone informed on my activities, I wouldn’t trade her for the world…..
Anyway, stop by any tine, you’re always welcome.. Have a great day………… JD
