seems only fitting the top 2 posters should be the first 2 in the introduction forum
i'm faithfulservant...a convert of 8 years,from a southern baptist background, received into our Lord's Church, by the Grace of God through the intercession of our Loving Mother, on april 11,1998.
i married a cradle Catholic, though for the first 23 years of our married life, we never went to Church. through my conversion, my wife made her first confession in 25 years and we have been faithful members of Prince of Peace parish in houston ever since.
dcf was my first Catholic message board (has it only been 2 years
) and is still the one i call home though i post infrequently on at least 3 more boards.
i am active in our Eucharistic Adoration ministry at our parish and have been a member of the Legion of Mary for 6 years. i figured it was the least i could do for our Lady because without Her, i would not be Catholic.
i thank dcf and many of the wonderful people who frequent this board for increasing my knowledge of our wonderful faith... i learned more about our Church here than i ever did in RCIA
i am most thankful for our Lady's hand in guiding me to Her Son and into His Church...the last 8 years have been by far the most wonderful i have spent in my journey in this vale of tears... and i look forward each day to see where my Lord will lead me...
11 For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of affliction, to give you an end and patience.
12 And you shall call upon me, and you shall go. and you shall pray to me, and I will hear you.
13 You shall seek me, and shall find me: when you shall seek me with all your heart.
14 And I will be found by you, saith the Lord
Be still and see that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, and I will be exalted in the earth.
