 Hello everyone.

It`s so nice to be here.  Have been enjoying your lovely  posts for many years now and thought it time to join so that even more boards will open up! 

See you around these streets of gold.   :)

shattered time after time. He shatters it Himself. He is the great iconoclast. Could we not almost say that this shattering is one of the marks of His presence? The Incarnation is the supreme example; it leaves all previous ideas of the Messiah in ruins. And most are 'offended' by the iconoclasm; and blessed are those who are not."

Welcome  :friendstu: :gimmefive: :friendstu: but why did you wait so long to stand up and be counted?  Whatever, I'm glad you did! :dsunny:
Socrates taught Plato.  Plato taught Aristotle.  Aristotle tutored the son of Philip of Macedon.  This boy grew up to become Alexander the Great, largely by slaughtering a lot of people.  That's philosophy.

Jesus spoke the Truth.  He blessed the poor.  He healed the sick.  He even raised the dead.  He died on a cross for us, lived again, and came back long enough to tell us to love one another.  That's religion.

Thank you both.

 Lazarus....ummmm... because by nature I`m quite shy and  am happiest remaining quiet.  :)  but I love to read, especially here. 

Also, my roommate kept encouraging me to go ahead and join.

Good for her.

Thank you, lomarah.

 Gayle, my roommate, is not a member....yet.  She is not quite a universalist yet, either.

 She is, however, quite aware of this place due to our conversations about Jesus, which include, at times, posts I 'lift' directly from here...which are written by you guys, and read to her word for word.  :)   I see Jesus doing a mighty work in her life....but it's probably best I leave that for her to share when the time comes.    :girlheart:

I do find it funny that she's the one who kept at me to "join." 
So here I am...for better or worse.   :rolllol:

Why thank you, RonnyTX.

And I'm singing right along with you.  :)

.....trying to picture the entire universe singing together....to Him.  Probably dancing too with so many different musical instruments playing.  Everyone at peace and loving Him and one another. True joy.
At last.
