For the newly illumined
« on: May 15, 2005, 05:31:51 PM »
Dear Friends,

Christ is risen!

This morning, MsGuided and I had the pleasure of seeing Donna Rose enter the Eastern Orthodox Church (OCA).  Let's continue to keep her and the other members of our forum who have entered the Church in recent days in our prayers.

"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."

Prayers for her entrance into the Orthodox Church.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

i just wanted to thank everyone for their prayers as i was received into the Church this weekend - i have been very busy with the beginning of summer school since then, hence the elapse in time. but thank you very much - the prayers are greatly appreciated...

and thank you also to the people who made it out to see it :)

In Christ,
Donna Mary

Many Years, Donna Mary!

May God Bless you and Keep you, all the years of your life, and may you continue to travel, in a spiritual sense, ever closer to Him!
