I have always faith in God. Life is not always easy but having faith gives me hope always. I believe that there is something beautiful out there for us all. I believe in God with all my heart and with all my soul.
That's true - Heaven is for Real.
In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going."
--- John 14:2-4
