    Dyna is very correct when he says that your outpouring to us makes us stronger. It made me think also.

    Some of us, myself among them, say that no-one should judge and that H1A shouldn't heve been judged by this guy.

    Just yesterday, I had a good "talk" with my own spirit. I was pondering the judgemental part of myself. Some stuff my son-in-law does just bothers me. Am I judging? Is my opinion of his actions and how they affect my Grandchildren being judgemental?

    There are other examples I thought of. I got a message last September when I prayed about such things. The message was loud and clear. DO NOT talk about others and DO NOT judge them.

    This is a subject that certainly needs more thought and more work. It is hard to define it and hard to implement this kind of change in a life that judged others as a habit.

    I will pray for guidance and courage and strength to walk my path and let others walk theirs. I know as an elder I have an obligation to correct or to teach at times. I need to pray for guidance there, too. So I know when and if I should get involved and make sure it doesn't come from my own judgement of another, but rather a response to a request.

    I will attempt to look at others and see them as another human being given their path by God. I will attempt to learn what I can from what they do. I will try to get a positive thought, either a lesson or other blessing from what I perceive instead of a judgement. I'll pray for these things.

    Hi Angel,
    I've been reading the post and wanted to say first off thank you for your kind words during my time of need. More importantly from what I can tell reading thru all the post since I've been on this site you are truly an awesome person and I agree with what you say about Christians being quick to judge, I take people for what they show me My Grandmother used to tell me all the time, it's not our job to judge people God will do that when the time comes. Don't beat yourself up for what someone else thinks or judges you for your'e too good a person.

    and I could be....ah....well...ah... Hey...what's left? I know...I could be crowd control... or hey..do you have any older sisters??? how about cousins?? What's your Mom doin??? hehehe... now that's what I'm talkin about!!!
    OK no kiddin H1A...the strength is bein secure enough to show vulnerability ... even if there is a chance of lookin foolish or weak... see...so what you perceive as a weakness is actually a great strength.... a Grace....because you don't even know you have it...
    During your time of sadness you give to us thru your power of example that we can trust each other enough to be open. You took the chance... now we can.
    So...I thank you for that unmerited gift. You are truly a woman of dignity and honor...
    now...back to Mom...hehehe...

    You need a Dad to give you away, let me know. Otherwise, I'll just attend the ceremony and cry at the wedding like everyone else.

    We love you Christi!

    H1A? Maybe he's not good enough for you...I think you are a wonderful & beautiful woman & I'm so glad that you & I had a chance to talk while out in NYC. Hugs to you my friend...

    Here's something that Cinderella shared with me & I'm going to share it with you...

    My ability to love and feel for you is a part of who I am, not a part of who you are. Your ability to feel for me, or lack thereof, is a part of who you are, it is NOT a reflection on me.


    i agree with that--YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH--he isn't---if he was he would see the true you--into what is truely in your soul and what your spirit consists of

    Christi--remember this--it isn't his place to judge you just as it isn't your to judge him--WE ALL HAVE DONE THINGS IN THE PAST THAT WEREN'T 100% NONE OF US ARE PERFECT--SOME STRIVE FOR IT--ACCEPT YOU IMPERFECTION AND LIVE THE BEST YOU CAN

    remember to ere is human and to forgive devine

    you are a magnificant woman--the Lord made you--so live in his glory


    peace P

    Good Morning H1A...
    I am sorry that you are hurtin..
    What I see is that your inner and outer beauty match... that doesn't happen often with people.
    You are a loyal friend even when being loyal isn't the popular position.. that takes strength and commitment. I really respect that you don't leave anyone behind...
    Our past helps make us what/who we are. I'm thinkin that your past helped create the lovely lady that is H1A..and that God isn't finished with you yet.
    I have seen your kindness here.
    It must really blow that your prospect wasn't all that he could be. Doesn't matter the reason...it's gotta hurt.
    Your friends here can be with you while you go thru it...
    I appreciate that you have the courage and trust to post about it. That honors all of us.
    Please get back when you can...
    We will be here...

    Angel.....
    Take the experience and learn what you can from it. The good of it and the bad of it. Think about it from other points of view, yours, his, and the unknown passerby.

    Personally, I feel that if someone passes judgement and doesn't want to know you because they perceive you as having a fault, then it is ALL their problem.

    Pray for understanding for and of yourself. Pray for peace in the heart of that person who didn't forgive. Pray that you accept anothers scorn and that you grow from it. Pray that you maintain the courage to stay on your chosen path.

    Remember, not judging others is good, but we must also not judge ourselves until all the facts are in. If your actions are honest in your own heart, then God knows this. The Creator is the ONLY judge and guides you through your heart.

    I wish you peace in your heart always as well as in this matter.

    So, I guess my confession is that Bigbear is a fake.

    Yes Jess, you are a fake.Anyone who isnt perfect is a fake. The bible tells us toCONFESS our sins one to another. Anyone who admits not always doing as they should is a sinner. BUT! the CONFESSION of a sinner he isnt as good as he would like to be, not just for himself, but for his brothers also, IS the ultimate truth and shows our need for Christ. The truth sets you free! I too, am a faker. Love you brother!

    Spado---how'd you night go last night???


    Great H1A....Thanks for thinking of me.
    I'll ee mayul you about it one of these days.

    That Dream Catcher is coming too, soon.


    Things going good for me,(my mind) right now. An uplift from the doldrums of depression I was living in a short time ago.
    When this happens and I see the light again, I believe this means prayers have been answered, your prayers, my prayers.

    As time seems to heal all wounds, many of us live through difficult situations and as time passes, the situation gets better.

    Who is to say that it isn't the prayers asked of The Creator that heals us and softens the blow of tragedy?

    Confess to yourself if not in here that which you know to be right for you. You have the power in your heart. All you need do is put forth your own effort.

    Thank you all. Peace and love to you all.

    Spado, we all know people are placed in our paths for a reason. Sometimes they are there forever, sometimes just a short time.

    I came to this site a year ago, newly divorced, thinking I may find myself a biker and fall in love. That is over, now I come here because of my dear friends. I am no longer interested in finding love...I'm going to let it find me.

    I don't know why you came here...you're even married.

    I'm not looking to date, and you're not either. I guess this is where our paths were meant to cross.

    I'm glad they are crossing. You are SUCH an inspiration. Your words have caused me to re-think my ways, re-think my feelings, and re-think my purpose.

    Thank you, my friend, for sharing that with us. There is no way I can find the words to tell you how it made me feel.

    I look forward to having you on my path for quite a while.

    Along with so many others I have been blessed to find.

    Like HarleyGirl says, this site is kinda "hidden". At least so far.

    I want to go on record and confess to you this:
    I do not align myself with any religion. My prayers are from me to God, The Creator with no intermediary.
    This is the most 'at peace' I have found myself in my lifetime. So many lessons on how to exist in peace and happiness have come to me in thoughts and dreams as well as written words.

    Last September, I made a trip to Wyoming and went to the Medicine Wheel, an ancient wheel formed from rocks laid out in a circular fashion on top of a mountain.

    I had to walk up to this place, about a mile and a half, from a small gravel parking area.It's hard for me to walk long distances because of past medical problems, but I am still able to put one foot in front of the other.
    Being over 10,000 feet above sea level increased the challenge. I hiked up there every day for four consecutive days. Each day I tied a bundle of colored cloth ties to represent my prayers and tied them, one bundle in each direction, each day when I got to the top of the mountain.

    As I walked and stopped to rest on the way up each day, I would be talking to The Creator. Asking that the Spirits be with me to help me understand what my purpose here on Mother Earth is. I asked the Spirits to guide me and protect me. I told them I was just a man and therefore dumb and couldn't "see" and understand the world and needed help and guidance.

    I went back down to my campsite and prepared for the next day and another journey to the top of that mountain and the Spirit of God at the Medicine Wheel.

    I received messages. Ideas that popped into my head and wouldn't leave. Words of wisdom that made me think and required understanding. Thoughts so strong they became memories with exact parameters.
    Some would say I had a vision.

    After four days, I broke camp and left, heading back East towards home. I still carry these messages with me, these life teachings. I pray that I keep these ways in my life forever. When I falter and forget, I pray that the Spirit comes into my heart and helps me once again to have peace.

    I tell you this to confess to you what has happened to me. How my life has changed from constant depression, anger, mistrust, fear and other feelings of despair.
    I confess to the start of healing for myself.

    You see, just making it up that mountain once, was like a small miracle. I've had six heart attacks, it's hard to climb mountains.

    I learned not to lie, to anyone let alone yourself. Not to judge, ever. To quit talkin' about other people in any negative way. To forgive and to love everyone, even those who have or may hurt me.
    And I learned that I CAN do something that I say I'm gonna do. I completed my commitment to go to the mountain and climb it for four days straight.

    These lessons came to me in my own way when God knew I would and could accept them, understand them and put them into practice in my everyday life.

    For me, I believe I probably had a chance to get these lessons growing up if I had paid attention in Sunday School, or if I had read and studied the Bible. Either I didn't take advantage of the chance to learn them or I wasn't ready to learn them.

    So, I am not religious. And I know I have been touched by the Spirit of God.
    May this same Spirit touch your lives however it comes to you.

    Gosh...you're absolutely right.

    Feels like a little hidden room no one else knows about.

    You did good making this room for us..thank you.

    Yeah Bear...you are far from fake. I (like everyone else) has fake people in their life.

    You, my friend, are not fake. Trust me.

    I do somewhat understand what you mean though as far as fake. I sometimes feel the same way, because I am a people pleaser. I will inconvenience myself for anyone at anytime. I've read it's that subconscious desire to be liked.

    Remember, the first part of fixing something, is recognizing the problem. Now we just move forward.

    Tomorrow is another day, my friend.
