Day 26: My religious beliefs
As many of you can tell from my blog, I’m a Christian. This means I believe in Christ: his coming, his dying, his resurrecting and his second return.

Take a deep breath in
Hold it for a moment
Now let it go slowly
That may or may not excite you
As life has been a little shaky lately

To allow life smack you in the face
Or run to the throne of grace.
Everyone dies someday
But for you, not today
So do me one favour, love
