MissyH, I wanted to pipe up here and tell you I am truly a fan. I admire you, your delightful personality, your honesty, and your spirit. You have encouraged and inspired me and -- many many times, most importantly for me -- made me laugh out loud.
To me, this 92910 person who hides her identity and tries to snuff out the spirit of a glowing candle is evidence of something powerful at work here. How can I express this...
I'm a Christian and believe in powers all around us -- good and bad. Many of us Christ-ians believe that when God is working in a life to make his power evident to others, dark forces often show up to counter the evidence of God's power. To harm the bearer of the light, so to speak so that the message can be quelled.
I'm not making any assumptions about your spiritual beliefs, Missy. I'm just trying to say, ineffectively, that I believe this is evidence that GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING in your life, that you are blessing other people. And that when this happens, there are those people, forces, whatever -- who sadly cannot tolerate the light and try to snuff it out.
