Day 235 - Friday 22nd August

"Faith is to believe what we do not see; and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe" - St Augustine

I do not have any religious faith and nor I do believe that there is anymore out there than what I know to exist and that I can physically see, touch or feel. I do find it difficult to understand how people can be so sure about their beliefs when such atrocities are happening all around the world. But saying that I do not understand their beliefs enough to argue my point and I would never think any less of them, or belittle their beliefs as it is important that everyone lives their lives the way they see fit.

Lovely photo of Zoe and your DH again today Claire
I do have strong beliefs, but you have not offended me and here is not the place to go into why I know that there is a God in heaven even though atrocities still go on. But if you want to understand more pm me and I will try to put it in a way that you will understand

OH SHIRLEY WONDERED WHO/WHAT HAD BEEN DELETED!!

Mary I was going to say the same thing!!
All I will say is Claire you had faith in an unknown marriage, that it would work and that you would love each other.

Atrocities in the world are man made not God given.
