I miss the days

I miss the days

when I knew for sure

that God created the earth

and everything in it

in only a week.
When what “we” said

about the Bible was right

and what “they” said

about the Bible was wrong.

When salvation could be found

in 5 easy steps

outlined in a Jule Miller filmstrip.

When I felt a confidence

and a knowing

that is now long gone.

I miss those doubtless days.

And yet

I believe.


I still believe.

But I also have

a little bit

of unbelief.


  1. I have a priest friend who says the opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty. I think he has a point.

    1. Me too. This is a keeper. Thanks for sharing, Sheila!
