I think a post should be dedicated to the single most important gift in my life...Salvation. ♥

I believe whatever religion or faith you are, that you must be born again into the Kingdom of God. I believe more than signing a card, or just saying a loud you accept Christ. Jesus Christ accepted me and forgave me of my sins and I'm eternally thankful.
No matter what I have in this life, my gift of Salvation will always be the most precious.
