Something the local priest here also deals with (thus being "clean shaven")  :)  Is this the first time you've posted in this thread?

So, all he could do was shave it? :-\

And I think I posted one a long time ago, but it's gone now.

Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Oh hey, you can also see my burgeoning rhinophyma. How swell lol...

And no, I don't drink. Pretty sure that's a myth.

Yeah, I'm the woman, just see my nichkname (that's also my name in general).
What do you mean by "breathe unevenly" to you? And what "makes sense" now?

If I might try my hand at a bit of "tasseography-"

That about right, ixsodnik?

More cynical (or maybe misanthropic), really. Little to no emotion is typically involved. I just tend to assume the worst of most people and any given situation.

My apologies.

My apologies.

I think you're insincere. You bring your apology, but immediately begin to run the themes, alluding to something nasty against me, "lol". Not at all trying to understand the essence of the question - you do not need it. Considering your words about the Orthodox Bishop of Korea:

Jackass. I hope he dies of heart worms.

, I think that the reason for your behavior is religious, and lies in your dislike for Orthodoxy. So let's do this: I did not take offense before, and now do not take offense at you - and you stop insulting my hearing with false apologies.

My being sorry for jumping the gun and misattributing motives to you in this case has nothing to do with the fact that I'm suspicious of you in general (not least of all since you're a Holodomor denier).

Jackass. I hope he dies of heart worms.

I shouldn't have said that, yes (and it was about the MP, not the now-Bishop of Korea).

It was also eight years ago. I've said a lot of things over the years that I now regret, haven't you?


Fwiw, I love Orthodoxy and I still intend to convert someday. I just strongly dislike the actions of some Orthodox bishops.

51 years old. I'm so grateful for all my many blessings. Life has never been easy, but I think I'm learning to make peace with the fact that true grace can only be found in the struggle.

This forum has been a blessing to me. Yes, sometimes it too has been a struggle. But I have found good friends and great encouragement through my time here. I have learned so much from so many different people about a variety of issues.

So thanks so much to those of you who have endured my arrogant and opinionated rants and have chosen to see something good in me. I am a sentimentalist, and I really do feel a sense of family with the people on this forum.

Please keep praying for this sinner.

You're probably thinking of Quinault (iirc myself).  I have very little Native American in me.  No, it's more I don't have any identity other than American, though not as a look or ethnicity.  I'm not connected to my hereditary culture(s).  It threw me off, but I knew what was meant, so it's sad, too.

Apparently, not "American."  :laugh: ??? :-\  I find the irony amusing, but...
Am I mistaking you for someone else, or you're native?
You're probably thinking of Quinault (iirc myself).  I have very little Native American in me.  No, it's more I don't have any identity other than American, though not as a look or ethnicity.  I'm not connected to my hereditary culture(s).  It threw me off, but I knew what was meant, so it's sad, too.

How does one "look" American apart fron dress?
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

How does one "look" American apart fron dress?
Someone that looks Nordic, but overweight, with bad teeth and unhealthily burnt skin, looks redneck or hillbilly rather than from anywhere else in the world. They might as well be Boers or southern Brazilians, but you get the point.

"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

"When you don’t live with Christ, you live in melancholy, in sorrow, in anxiety and in worry. You don’t live properly… The best medicine is to devote yourself to the worship of Christ. Everything is cured. Everything works properly."

~ St. Porphyrios


"The Church is indeed 'Apostolic'.  But the Church is also 'Patristic'.  And only by being 'Patristic' is the Church continuously 'Apostolic'."
