Yes, it is me and my older brother and I did believe in Santa Claus

I'm not sure when I stopped believing or why I stopped.
Was it that I already knew but it was easier to get things from my parents if I asked Santa.
I do remember getting into trouble with a neighbour when I told one of their younger children that there was no Santa.

Are our beliefs only there to comfort us and when they dont work to our advantage, then we change.

I went to Presbyterian Sunday School and had a belief in a God and maybe a Jesus---I really dont recall.

I'm not sure if I had a second comming of belief in my teen years when I went to church youth meetings or if it was just that I just liked a few of the girls there---ok, one girl---hello Julie Pender

A Monsignor of the Catholic Church told me one day, that he thought that a lot of people who went to a "House of God" every sunday, only went to be seen by others and a lot who stayed at home had God in their heart and their house..
Do those who go, think that they are in the fast lane to something good ?

I had some sort of belief in a God until my brother died.
If there was a God, why would he let such a good man suffer and why would he let him die so early.
Why would such a God let bad things happen to children.

So I say that I dont believe---but every now and again, I yell at him on the beach and want answers to some questions----but he never answers.

Dont get me wrong. If you have a belief and that belief gives you some joy, I am happy for you.

It's funny that Chistians and Muslims believe in the same God, but they take their teachings from two diferent books written by men---and because those men had opposing views, then there is two opposing religions----and funny, it is a belief in the writings of men that make two groups have an opposing view on the same piece of history---
Hey guys, I might be right but I respect your right to believe.

If you believe in Santa, may he bring you everything you may wish for.
If you believe in God, may he answer your prayers

But no matter what you believe, may we all have peace, may you all have happiness, but most of all, may you be tolerant of the needs and beliefs of others

I have many of the same feelings, Clyde. Four people in my immediate family died when I was seven. It changed my life forever, and I remember wondering how God could do that.

Still. I admire people who truly believe...

There will be so many things in life that will make you change your mind on your beliefs.
I thing death will make everyone reaccess their feeling and beliefs

I so badly wanted to believe in Santa... but we didn't have a chimney.

P.S I don't think my blog is updating on your sidebar. Silly Blogger.

Santa died on the cross so we could ALL have pressies! :¬)

Miss Scarlet

Neither did we, but I didn't realise until it was too late.
Somehow he got in for a few years. I think back then you could leave your doors unlocked and there wasnt bars on windows

Clyde said...


Yep, I think that was the story---well at least one of the stories

Macy said...

I hope they both exist... but neither of them's shown much sign of appearing so far!

Clyde said...


Maybe Santa will make an appearance this year----look for an old man in a red suit and sit on his knee----you could be surprised
