Hello
« on: May 15, 2018, 04:17:19 AM »
I think I signed up for this forum last year. I actually thought my membership wasn't approved because I didn't get a confirmation email. LOL. I came back to sign up again, and the app said there is an acct with my email addy. So I was actually able to sign in. Poof. LOL


So since then I did get chrismated into the church.  Best thing I've done besides giving birth. There is just so much to learn and so many new saints to read about. Sometimes it gets overwhelming and im jumping from one topic to the next. Then I feel disorganized somewhat. Im learning not to overcomplicate things and just enjoy simple bible reading, absorbing liturgy, and peaceful daily prayer.

Hello and welcome.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

Wish I had the same mind when I converted.  ;D  Welcome!

I tried to sign up last year. Saw this post and decided to check. Now I’m an official lurker in the shadows.

Hah! Your avatar takes me back to another forum I was on. We had a prominent poster who used a Shadow avatar, too. He always wrote in the third person though (allegedly because he had no hands and had an amanuensis typing for him, and also because he liked schtick I guess).

I say "allegedly" because I have no way to confirm and it's a little hard to believe, but he seemed a good and trustworthy guy otherwise so *shrug*

Wasn’t me. I have a wooden nose to do all of my typing with.
