Please pray that my life works out and I gain employment
« on: March 15, 2010, 12:33:25 AM »
Dear fellow christians in christ,
My story is long but I hope you bear with me.
I have met the guy that I do want to spend the rest of my life with. He has been with me for 3.5 years and we have some many qualities in the relationship whereby it could be such a great future together but than there are other things which hold us back.
In the beginning he did alot for me and I never really appreciated him for the first 2 years because I was in love with someone else. Now over the past 3 to 4 months I have really realised just how much this guy means to me and how much I love him -but its real love from my soul-as we have the spirital connection is so much worthwhile.
Well I live around the corner from him and he doesnt want to leave home. We are meant to get married this year but I dont think he wants to get married.
He said he is confused by me and also that he wants a one week break.
:) I love him so much.
He even at one stage wanted to be a priest...but his family dont really like me and he doesnt want to take the next step and leave home.
What do I do? I am so in love with him but its not a love from the world but from ABOVE.

Lord, have mercy.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

Time, it's our best friend and our worst enemy at the same time. It's a healer and a destroyer.

Lord have mercy.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria
