Things I Believe
It’s good to take inventory every once in a while, in the things that you truly believe. With all the outside sources these days poisoning our minds, we can be swayed or even brainwashed into believing in the ridiculous things on television, radio and print. So think about it. What do you believe? Here are a few things that I believe.
I believe that in every life some rain must fall, but when can I finally take off these hip-waders?
I believe that the children are our future, but what the heck do we do with them right now?
I believe the first snowfall of the year is like a visit from your mother-in-law. At first you’re glad to see it, but after a couple days you’re ready for it to melt and go away.
I believe the Beatles had it right when they sang, “All you need is love, love is all you need”. I also believe they had it right when they sang, “Can’t buy me love.” I think when they sang, ‘we all live in a yellow submarine’, they should have sang something about love instead.
I believe if you let a smile be your umbrella you may drown, but at least you would go smiling. (And probably gurgling)
I believe my mother was a saint.
I believe the Roadrunner has an amphetamine problem and a death wish.
I believe if I smile really big at someone, they won’t notice my crappy shoes.
I believe my father was a hero.
I believe that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and now he is where he belongs, separated from God and is really alone.
I believe in first impressions and second chances.
I believe that most people don’t realize their cars are equipped with turn signals.
I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, was buried, rose on the third day, ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of God.
I believe that many celebrities have an amphetamine problem and a death wish.
I believe if someone offered me ‘a penny for my thoughts’, they would ask for a refund.
Okay next time I will write about things I believed at one time but now have carefully reconsidered and I’m thinking about changing my mind to a different point of view. Or maybe something about love instead!
