Sunday Scribblings' prompt this week is "I Believe". Two memories immediately popped in my head when I read it. One is the Apostles Creed, which I had memorized in my childhood and still know it by heart to this day. Second is the song by Tom Jones titled "I Believe". I must have listened to that song a hundred times while I was growing up. My parents must have liked Tom Jones because I remember we have a "record" of that at home and it gets played over and over again. Along with the Apostles' Creed, the lyrics of this song is also engraved in my brain. Just for the fun of it, I googled the words "I Believe By Tom Jones" and I actually found a You Tube video of it!
Before I share the video, I just want to testify that I am a believer. Are you? The chorus in the I Believe song goes like this:
Every time I hear a new born baby cries
or touch a leaf
or see the sky
then I know why I believe.
This coming year 2009 is a year of challenge. With America's economy being as unstable as it is, it is easy to be discouraged and depressed. But let us not be discouraged. I believe that we will get through this hard times. It will teach us important lessons we would never have learned if we're always on affluent state. I believe the hard times bring something good. I believe. The bad times will not kill us - it will make us stronger.
And so, here's the song for us:
