    What a strange comment.i don't think the king of Kings god made any boundaries to separate any one from each other and god.god has provided enough on this planet for all.one the most important words from the Bible is love others as I have loved you.maybe looking at it in the sense you are giving to these children of God you won't feel robbed?

    Jerusalem has walls around it, still, to this day.

    Speaking of being a godly woman, forgiveness is just one working in my heart.i am a work in progress,to me forgiving trump to me means I can forgive anyone,I also do feel he has done some things I can't feel good about like deporting brethern to a different country etc etc.so yes forgiveness has been on my mind for years.

    Ah.  I'm glad justice and mercy work in tandem.  I have a hard time forgiving millions of people for sneaking into my country illegally and robbing me.

    My favorite patron saint of purity is St.Maria Goretti. Are there any catholics who have a favorite patron saint of purity?

    My confirmation saint is St. Amelia of Temse.  She was consecrated to God, and Charlemagne fell in love with her and wanted to have sex with her, but she said no.  He actually at one point broke her arm by trying to drag her away when she was lying prostrate in front of the tabernacle.

  5. I LOVE my diamond.  I'm the 4th one in his family to have it.  It's an amazing stone. 

    I know I am very traditional and would be happiest with a diamond.  I would like something else, but that nagging feeling would be there that I wish I had a diamond.  So, the way this worked out is pretty perfect for me.


  6. This woman is someone you didn't know.  You didn't, for whatever reason, think she was worth the time getting to know.  So even if she was a wonderful person, the very powerful draw of "what if?" has you sucked in and is making you suffer right now.  Just be away that that is an endless well and can take over your imagination and lead you to despair. 

    I think it's interesting to note that you said you could have had sex thousands of times and had kids and more money...instead of that you maybe missed out on getting to know a wonderful person.  Though it has many positive attributes, marriage is not about a status upgrade.  It is about uniting with another person. 

    That's what I would be worried about, rather than missing out on sex or kids.  Is it hard for you to get close to people?  Have you had other girlfriends you were close to?  Are you a closed off and emotionally unavailable person?

    These things are relationship killers.

  7. I have a question for the successful waiters!  I will be one of you in a mere 3 months!

    This might be more of an issue for women, but did you have trouble changing the mindset from "NO" to "YES" after the wedding.  I've heard that this can be an issue for women who grew up in very conservative religious groups.  Going from hands off to all hands on deck, and the like.  Was it an adjustment?  Did you ever feel dirty or shameful from having waiting a long time? 

     

    Thanks!

  8. My gorgeous fiance was on his knee when I turned around after he tapped me on the shoulder in the Cathedral.  He said "will you marry me, my darling?" and then tears sprang into his eyes.  

    That was 110% masculine, non-pathetic, precious, and wonderful.  I wouldn't trade his tears for the world, because it showed me how important this moment was to him.  

    I am not a fan of public proposals for this reason.  It is not something to be shared with the world.  I am so glad it was just us, and Jesus.

    EDIT: I’m starting to feel like I may need to seek help. I don’t know anyone that thinks the way I do, and I’m feeling a ton of anxiety about everything.

    I have anxiety.  Diagnosed, medicated, etc.  There is no shame in getting help.  It is very responsible.  I get help from the doctor, my counselor, my fiance, and God.  
    You can change your thoughts.  It is possible!  Sometimes we get stuck and need nudging.

  10. As sex is integrated into who we are, and never separate...I have found it extremely beneficial not delve into other forms of sex.  Masturbation and pornography use are soul-killers.  I know this from expirience!  Back when I was looking at porn and masturbating, I was so angry and an escapist into these unhealthy things instead of focusing on fixing the problem.  I would delve into fantasy and neglect my real-life responsibilities.  Since I have stopped looking at porn and masturbating I am so much freer and happy.  

    I don't smoke and never have.  I do enjoy a drink now and then, but I'm careful not to have too much.  I don't like feeling out of control.  

    I abstain from meat on Fridays during Lent.
