    I just want to tell everyone on the Board that you have all continued to be in my prayers and thoughts, and that I'm so happy to be a part of this Message Board. May God continue to give you all the peace that only comes through Christ's love and sacrifice. Love in Him, Jeannette

    When I say..."I am a Christian"
    I'm not shouting "I am saved."
    I'm whispering "I was lost!"
    That is why I chose this way.

    When I say..."I am a Christian"
    I don't speak of this with pride.
    I'm confessing that I stumble
    and need someone to be my guide.

    When I say..."I am a Christian"
    I'm not trying to be strong.
    I'm professing that I'm weak
    and pray for strength to carry on.

    When I say..."I am a Christian"
    I'm not bragging of success.
    I'm admitting I have failed
    and cannot ever pay the debt.

    When I say..."I am a Christian"
    I'm not claiming to be perfect,
    my flaws are all too visible
    but God believes I'm worth it.

    When I say..."I am a Christian"
    I still feel the sting of pain
    I have my share of heartaches
    which is why I seek His name.

    When I say..."I am a Christian"
    I do not wish to judge.
    I have no authority.
    I only know I'm loved.
