I am currently in a relationship in which many obstacles, both current and potential, threaten its being sealed at the Holy Altar. She is too precious for me to lose, and we have already come a long long way together — emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. Although we seem quite compatible in all the aforementioned fundamental aspects of a relationship, I consistently have this fear (some may call it a paranoia — but I wouldn’t) that I am not good enough for her, that I am too unworthy of her, and that one day it will all coming crashing down on me. I am trying to change a lot of things in my life to “earn her” so to speak, and as such am being motivated and encouraged to become a better person, a better student, a better potential husband, and most important of all, a better Christian.

Please pray for our relationship, that Christ may have mercy upon, and grant His unworthy servant the strongest desire of my heart - my beloved Mary - though according to His will, and not to my own. I know that her entering my life was a miracle, and I truly believe and experience the love of God that I see shines through her. We are approaching the days in which the threatening obstacles need to be dealt with; they are not easy to overcome, and I really need some miracles.

Peace.

Kyrie eleison.

None of us are worthy of our wives and the mothers of our children- they are living Saints.

IC XC NIKA
EA,
The Lord give you His peace.
I recall that you said you had a fetish with women's elbows.  I was wondering, if perhaps, this ladie has the "perfect" elbows you are attracted too?

Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

I really appreciate all your prayers; I don't have much people to ask to pray for things like this, since i'm a rather "independent" person, so your prayers mean alot, thank you.

Peace.
