I Believe...

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

What does this mean? 

I believe that God has made me and all creatures; that He has given me my body and soul, eyes, ears, and all my members, my reason and all my senses, and still preserves them; 

also clothing and shoes, meat and drink, house and home, wife and children, fields, cattle, and all my goods;

that He richly and daily provides me with all that I need to support this body and life. That He defends me against all danger and guards and protects me from all evil;

and all this purely out of fatherly, divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness in me. 

For all which it is my duty to thank and praise, to serve and obey Him. 

This is most certainly true.


  1. Bonnie,

    Great Post! The Apostles Creed is so undeserving we are! I love all the pictures! It looks like you have already had so much fun with your new camera!

    See you soon,

  2. Wow Bonnie! You definitely have a photographer's eye. I could see this being a short video/slide show with the parts of the Creed in between. I love how the places you put the quotes, fit with the pictures. The last one is especially nice! What kind of camera did you get? It is so good to hear the Creed; it puts us at peace in His grace again.
    Thanks, your friend,

  3. I like how you tied in the pictures with the Creed : ) where did you take them?
