I made myself a necklace.
I love barrel knots so that’s how I made it hold together. This is just a jaaaaanky cross from eBay I had a long time but I wanted to wear it. The chain broke and I said “Perfect! A fresh start!” James asked if I would like a new one for Christmas. as long as it’s a silver one, okay!
All of my religious friends here are soooo excited for me to have a BLESSED BIBLE. And they said it’s so special being blessed even if I’m not 100% on board with everything that is said and it means a lot that the actual orient is going to give it to me.
I will say, I AM excited to get this even if yes, I’m not 100% on board with everything people say. I’m slowly learning. Father Kriss is helping me learn things that HE knows.
And I hate to say it but I like it this way. It reminds me of what Ryan said when he diagnosed me with MS. “Be careful what you believe from the people you’ll meet.” “Everyone becomes an expert even with YOUR health.” And that’s not being rude. I found that IS actually how it has been a lot. My MS is not yours and yours is not mine, Peggy’s, Darrell’s or Linda’s. So just like religion (and politics), you are perfectly able to believe or not and pick and choose what parts you do believe in.
AND THAT ALSO CAME STRAIGHT FROM FATHER KRISS!!!!!! I am excited to learn from HIM and experience new experiences with the Catholic Church and Father Kriss as my teacher. Even JAMES is on board after everything he has was a witness to in the past two weeks with me. And that’s BRAVE of James too. Because like me, he was a flat out atheist. His father is! His brother is. So this is HUGE for James. This is huge for both of us and I’m excited for us.

I asked Fr Kriss if this now makes me a hypocrite. He told me that the Catholic Church has welcomed Saints that were double my age into the church & that “not so good” people found God and became Saints.
So two Atheist’s can surely find religion at any age & time of the day.
