I've read more than a few posts tonight that got me to wondering,just what do ya hold close in ya heart?
what do ya truly believe in?
What do ya have the most faith in?
Or do ya have faith in anything at all?

I'm not sure myself that I truly have faith in anyone thing,but I do hold my
Friendships here very close!And I have faith that one day my life will change for the better,I also have faith that there is someone out here, the one just for me~ And that there is also a better life waitin' for me as well~

But now I want to know just what do you believe in?
what do ya hold close?
Anything ya have faith in?
Anything at all!
I'm just wondering? Anything big or small!

Yup I'm back for now!
hope it lasts! But for those I haven't visited I'm tryin' to catch up! and will soon!

Welcome back Spumky,

Its nice to see your face popping up around blogville again. Thanks for your comments by the way and your time. I hold your opinion very highly in my words.

Faith: belief in, devotion to, or trust in somebody or something, especially without logical proof

Microsoft® Encarta® 2006. © 1993-2005 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Do I Believe in or am devoted to, or tust in someone or something without logical proof?

Hell yes! Manythings... Love has no real rational proof and I have faith in those who love me. Regardless of all the talk about chemicals and psycology, what matters is that you as a person cannot rationalize precisely why you love or are loved by someone. That is why you have FAITH in others' love.

The intricate laws that nature functions by and life demands are too complex to rationalize which leaves you with no option except having faith in nature...i.e. a higher conscience or super-conscience the least you can say about it is that it equals the aggregate of all consciences available in existence, if not more.

So at least these two things, Lovers, and an Omniscient Uber-being (call it Jehovah, God, Buddah, or whatever) exist that I have faith in.

Some modern thinkers, many of whom have overdosed on their own ego, try to argue that faith is a sign of weakness in a person. That only the weak resort to irrational colnclusions not backed by evidence. To those I say, at least I have the ability to believe in something and keep an open mind in case I am mistaken, instead of being too arrogant to admit when I am baffled by a phenomenon and stick my head in the ground in fear of not being able to RATIONALIZE it.

Welcome back Spunky and keep up the excellent thoughts.

Welcome Vitruvius! Thanx for your kind regards! And What you've written here is a very insightful look into You! I too believe in a Higher being,or power,what ever one chooses to call it, I feel we are all talking about that very same "One" As you said be it God, Allah or Jehovah,or those many other names! We are all part of the same world! And maybe someday there will be more understanding among all of us,no matter our beliefs or our faith!
You are always welcome here~

I've never given this a whole lot of thought... I do have a faith, a strong faith that there is some "plan" for my life, that nothing happens by accident, and that eventually I'll find the understanding of things that have already happened that might not have happened the way I would have liked them to happen. I know that sounds like I'm talking in circles, but I'm really not. I guess what I'm trying to say is that eventually, everything works out for the good, even though sometimes it doesn't seem so.

Hey there ZZ! No you aren't talkin' in a circle, I hear ya and know exactly what ya mean there,I feel the same way~

Humor. It brings me great joy to make someone smile and
nothing (almost nothing) makes me feel better than to laugh.
I hold faith in family, friends, lovers and that there is a
higher power. Hopefully I make them all smile once in awhile.


spunky11961 replies on 8/6/2006 11:57 am:
Hello and Welcome! those are great things to have faith in and especially I like that you want to make people smile~

I hold God, family and friends close... they get me through the rough spots. When no one is around, I always have my writing to fall back on... if not that...I have other backup plans.

What do I truly believe in? I believe there is a God. And he has a great sense of humor. What do I hold close to my heart? My family.
