Hi. I really don't feel like talking to you people today. But it'll be good for me.

Danna, Lothlorien is still alive and well in the comment box. It's in the exact same web address as it was before, but she doesn't often post new stuff. If you want to come on over and talk, I don't think she'd mind, would you, Beth?

Tonight I discovered the very sharp, very real pain of heartbreak. Sitting in your living room while your very loving pastor explains truths (that are very hard to take) to you...I didn't want to believe him at first. Now I realize that he's totally on track with God's plan, but conviction and repentance of certain things is hard. HARD. I don't really feel comfortable at this time to tell what happened exactly, but please pray for me, for my family, and for Robbie. I've never needed it more (well, not since I got saved).

Well, the next few days will be...bleak.

Looking back on that, that's got to be the worst poem I've ever written. Sorry to put you through that drivel.

Will pray. Hope everything goes well.

The poem isn't that bad. The rhythm is okay, the words were just a little jumpy.

I'll be praying for you, Emily. Conviction and repentance is hard, I completely understand. I've been reading "Boy Meets Girl" by Josh Harris, and his writing really hits me where I need to hear it, and it's not easy to hear.

I'm glad you have a pastor who's willing to take the time to sit down with you - that's a tremendous blessing.

Your poetry obviously reveals what you're feeling, and in my opinion - that's what poetry was meant for. It's fine. ;)

Thanks, you guys. That's really encouraging. Maybe I should read that book too...I think my BFF has it, so I'll ask to borrow it. :)

Anything by Joshua Harris is highly recommended. Very.

Yeah, I have his book I kissed dating goodbye; it's really great. And I think this whole issue with guy/girl relationships is starting to seem a little easier to me now. Thank you for your prayers!
