I’ve mentioned before how I find music inspiring and thought provoking. This weekend I heard Eric Church’s Before She Does and Third Day’s I Believe multiple times. Both songs are declarations of principles the artists believe in. So it got me thinking – what do I believe?
I believe coffee with a girlfriend the perfect cure for a heavy heart.
I believe the overweight “Plane Jane” who devotes her time and resources to bettering her community is far more beautiful than the pageant queen and supermodel who only thinks of herself.
I believe that being Southern is a privilege – a privilege only other Southerners can truly appreciate.
I believe dogs are better than cats.
I believe the farmer, carpenter, soldier, mechanic and small business owner are the hope for America’s financial future not the politician, aristocrat or corporate CEO.
I believe in miracles – specifically the power of prayer because I believe in a great God who hears the call of His children and wants to work miracles on their behalf.
I believe holidays are best when spent with family and friends.
I believe the love of a good man is the greatest gift a woman could ever receive. If that woman is fortunate enough to start a family with that good man – well, she’s blessed beyond measure.
I believe in American traditions such as Thursday nights spent at the baseball field, summer vacations at the beach and weekend barbeques with the people you love.
I believe the man who works from sun up to sun down for minimum wage in order to provide for his family is worth far more than the millionaire who has never worked a day in his life.
I believe that I’m a sinner saved by the grace of God and that nothing I could ever do on this earth could be enough to repay the debt I owe to my Savior.
So now I want to know – what do you
