Isaiah58 oh, was it serious?
darkestlight113 no but it hurt
darkestlight113 big time
Isaiah58 what happened?
darkestlight113 I have an ear infection that spread to my inner ear making me really dizzy and throwing up
darkestlight113 fun fun
Isaiah58 ya man, but i'm not laughing.
darkestlight113 I could care less if my enemies are laughing
darkestlight113 they mean nothing to me
Isaiah58 i'm cutting back on food intake, trying for 1 meal a day.
will_usa_pa I need to do that too Isaiah
Isaiah58 wanna try lose some weight.
darkestlight113 eat less
darkestlight113 that will do it
will_usa_pa I think I'll go shovel some snow. I'll be back laters
darkestlight113 my friend from church is bringing me fast food :3333 lol
Isaiah58 right will.... come to my place to shovel snow too.
Isaiah58 actually my neighbour comes over to shovel my snow.
darkestlight113 chicken and fries
Isaiah58 ok yummy
Isaiah58 I used to get ear infection too, from fungi.
Isaiah58 then I used rose oil on it.
Isaiah58 sometimes we pray a few words and never think about it again.
Isaiah58 at other times a person keeps coming back to yur thoughts and so you know to stay in prayer.
Isaiah58 when the HS impresses something on us again and again he is likely drawing us in.
Isaiah58 we don't mmean to be disrespectful to God, but we can keep praying until we see results.
SaintTMore Yes, like the parable of the persistent widow and the corrupt judge
SaintTMore The other day I was reading a devotional, "Conversations With God" which said the woman with the hemorrhage was a very good model of prayer
Isaiah58 yes, she was.
SaintTMore The devotional said she met 4 elements of good prayer: (1) faith in Jesus; (2) trust in his goodness and mercy; (3) humility; (4) persistence.
Isaiah58 God delights in respectful persistence.
Isaiah58 some nice sermons have been preached on that lady
SaintTMore Her humility and persistence in saying that even the dogs eat the scraps that fall from the master's table.
SaintTMore Really touching
SaintTMore Touched Jesus' heart
Isaiah58 I like those testimonies.
SaintTMore Isaiah, watched your You Tube Video. Like Testimonials. I've watched probably a couple of hundred or more on "Journey Home" on EWTN.
SaintTMore Including by Roslyn Moss (now Mother Superior Miriam) and her Brother, David Moss (founded association of Hebrew Catholics)
SaintTMore They are one-hour clips, although the Journey Home website has several shorter clips
SaintTMore Mother Superior Miriam was formerly a Messianic Jew
Isaiah58 that's nice
SaintTMore Still considers herself Jewish - "completed" Jew
SaintTMore As do I, in a sense, although my jewish identity is very secondary to my Christian identity
Isaiah58 good for you.
Isaiah58 i go to small fellowship and we're kinda Pentecostal. Maybe 30 ppl.
SaintTMore Small has its advantages
Isaiah58 each sunday we serve a buffet afterwards.
SaintTMore There was actually a "charismatic" renewal in the Catholic Church, speaking in tongues, etc., popular mostly with younger group
SaintTMore Real popular with youth
SaintTMore I'm more on the traditional latin Mass and chant music end of the spectrum
Isaiah58 we had a few charismatic priests in this city too.
Isaiah58 maybe you're heard of Father Bob McDougall, him and another priest.
Isaiah58 Bob was a tail gunner in a bomber during WW2.
SaintTMore I like priests with military backgrounds
SaintTMore Our last pastor was an Air Force Academy graduate - pilot and military intelligence
SaintTMore Nothing feminine about him
SaintTMore Manly man
SaintTMore About half of our priests in my Diocese are veterans
Isaiah58 TM, are you a bishop?
SaintTMore LOL. I'm just a lay Catholic who came to the Church in 2006
Isaiah58 oh, thanks
SaintTMore Not even a real involved one, other than daily Mass attendance
Isaiah58 we had a protestant kid who went to catholic school, became a priest and then later a bishop.
SaintTMore Yes, some of our best people are converts.
Isaiah58 he served in Europe during WW2 and then served in Korea.
SaintTMore Our son had been discerning the priesthood for from ages 10-20, but recently entered the army at 23, after graduating
SaintTMore Hoping to meet the right woman - not sure if he wants to stay in the army long term. In Military Intelligence school now.
SaintTMore Where is Guelph Isaiah?
Isaiah58 my nephew was in American military intelligence too. After leaving that the electric power company in Orlando hired him as their chief man.
Isaiah58 so he's the boss over everyone there.
SaintTMore That's a great job.
Isaiah58 Guelph is an hours drive west of Toronto.
SaintTMore Electric companies have better job security than the government, better pay, and similar hours.
Isaiah58 yes he gets $50 an hour plus overtime.
Isaiah58 at least i think that's what it is.
SaintTMore I've read that Canada has some really harsh laws targeting persons of faith. Side with what Mark Steyn called "the Gaystopo"
Isaiah58 Canada has become liberal, abortions, accepting gays, and all that, but it is still wide open for evangelism.
SaintTMore Yes, if brave souls still try to evangelize in the mideast, I suppose Canada is a piece of cake.
Isaiah58 Gaystopo, haha
Jesus loves you!
