Stepping away for a while
« on: May 02, 2010, 01:00:31 AM »
I need to limit my internet time for a while and focus on my spiritual life right now. Hitting rough patches so I need to focus myself on God so I'm going to step away from forums for a bit.

Pray for me.

Christ is Risen!

Good luck, and I hope you find the time away beneficial! :) Probably most of us could do with limiting our time on these blasted internets.
If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, challenge them to a fight. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, air their dirty laundry. If anyone forces you to go a mile, berate him continually. Give to those deemed worthy (if they pass a drug test), and turn not away from billionaires in need of tax breaks. This is [not] the Gospel.

I'm caught in the interwebs myself, but I will cut free soon enough.

Lord have mercy (on us all)!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Truly He is Risen!  May the Lord have mercy on you and on us all.
