The long dark night of the soul is at an end...
« on: Jan 27, 10, 06:03 AM »
As a few of you will know, I'm something of an insomniac.  :-\

That's often a good thing when I need to get things done, sometimes less of a good thing when I get one of those brain-worms that won't go away...  :pa

While contemplating life, the universe and everything I've made a few discoveries about myself - and some of them have been unsettling, to say the least. One of these realisations was that my life had a God-shaped hole in it.

I've come to realise that, despite all my kicking, wriggling and protestations, I was born to serve my Lord Jesus Christ.

This is my public renunciation of all that has gone before.

I can't undo the shameful things I've done, I can't untell my off-colour jokes, I can't un-punch some of the the noses I thought deserved it at the time, I can't un-troll newsgroups, but I can stand before you an say I'm sorry and hope you can find it within yourselves to forgive me, as Jesus has forgiven me.  :'(
If you can't, well too bad, he's the only one who matters because he's the one who'll be taking me to Heaven.  :D

Brothers, Sisters, Jesus has turned my life around completely... and he can do the same for you...

Thank you, Jesus, for showing me the way.  :grovel2:

Amen

Congratulations  :angel:

I for one , are going to hold you up to it.

Here is a nice song to welcome you into the World of the Spirit: This was the song i was listening to when my wife told me she is pregnant with our first child.Which came as quite a shock as i thought i was a virgin at the time.  :think:




Does this still mean that extolling the virtues of wanking as a way to cut down on teenage pregnancy is still part of the our-local mission statement.  :tnx:

He will, but you have to let Him... that's where I'd been going wrong all these years.

It was that Baldwin fella on Big Brother that did it for you, wasn't it?
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Confession is good for the soul, right?  :angel:

Read this thread and all will become clear...

Given how weird this place gets at the best of times behaving more weirdly was always going to be a challenge!

I'll have a window seat please...   :tnx:

A Jim Beam is the nearest he's likely to get from me.  :dram:

Although I'll have an Islay single malt myself.  :dram:

Here's a Russian proverb that might have been written just for you and today's "conversion"!

"The church is near, but the road is icy. The bar is far, but we will walk carefully."
