  1. I did. When I left Christianity five or so years ago, and identified as an atheist for a time, I started reading up on it. Explored it, even. I found out a few years ago from my father, that we are part middle eastern (I always thought I was Italian and Irish, but come to learn my grandfather was middle eastern). and the culture, food, music, etc has always intrigued me, and in my reading about Islam, I started to develop an interest in Sufism. (a mystical approach to Islam) But, my interest in Islam was short lived, yet I find that Sufism still holds an interest for me.
  2. I have a great marriage so far. Have good friends. I'm getting along with my dad. Life has been good, lately.
  3. Remember me? ^_^ Just wanted to say hey and see how ya'll are doing.

      Thanks insightful :)

  4. Not qualified, but it would be interesting to teach a particular faith or set of spiritual beliefs to others. But, can faith be ''taught?'' Maybe the basic tenets of it, but beyond that, not sure much else can be 'taught.'' It's probably why I don't attend any one particular church all that often, because why is someone else's interpretation of faith, more relevant than how I view God, or my faith?
  5. I agree, but at the end of the day, it's all subjective. Faith will always be subjective, no matter what the faith beliefs are. To me, I believe it is my truth, but my truth won't necessarily be yours. And vice versa. I don't get hung up on worrying what others believe, so long as their faith beliefs don't intrude into my life, or try to force me to believe what they do. I think that is a problem with many Christians, specifically, but not all Christians think alike.
  6. I'm part Irish, in honor of St Patrick's day...such a beautiful song.
  7. So sorry to hear this, sending you hugs.
  8. That feeling when you just closed your eyes to fall asleep, and the next minute the alarm on your phone is going off, time to get up. I slept well, but why do some nights feel like that? :blink:

      You are welcome Deidre. Thanks :)

  11. You should post a song, this isn't the Lion's Den. lol
  12. It makes total sense. I appreciate you sharing this. It's about what makes sense to us, what makes us feel complete maybe? Not sure if that's quite the right word, but...it only matters to follow your own heart. Ancient Greece seems to have beautiful rituals and traditions. Do you follow any particular set of ''traditions'' or anything that stands out from other faiths?
