A few months ago.

What is standard fare for breakfast?
I almost always have fruit and besides that...whatever I find lol. Sometimes milk or toast or eggs or some fried potatoes. Eating breakfast is a struggle for me, hate it but know it is healthy for me so I always try to eat SOMETHING. My stomach doesn't feel ready to receive food until I've been up at least 4 hours, so if left to my self I'd not eat anything and get the roaring hungries at 10 or 11 o'clock :p. But they tell me that's not good for a body.

What is a story about when you were a child that you've heard so many times it feels like a memory?

I took apart the plumbing under the sink when I was three. Not much has changed.

If you were going to be alone on a deserted island for an extended period of time and could only take a small backpack with what you could fit, what would you bring?

I know who to call when the apocalypse hits. The last time I asked that question one girl said she was bringing her makeup bag. Give me the one who brings flint and a knife.

My list would be almost exactly the same, except I probably wouldn't bring a picture of my family sorry not sorry, my flint would have a dedicated steel separate from my knife, i'd like some sort of small steel bowl/cup for putting over the fire and a few calorie dense bars to help the initial start. Oh and probably the SAS survival handbook.

I'm actually still interested in hearing answers to this question, but I'm not going to hijack the thread so answer the same question if you'd like or:

Would you rather vacation at the beach or in the mountains?

I'd take Michael Phelps, a saddle and a stick with a gold medal on the end of it, because I would never go to a deserted island and would want to find a way off of it. lol

Mountains. A cabin with fireplace etc. in the mountains.

Would you rather build a snowman or make a snow angel?

It depends on the size of the dog or cat and how hungry I am at the time.

Scented candles - nice or waste of money?

Ooh...I'm going to have to say Chess. It's more of a thinking person's game.

What's a food from another country/culture that you haven't yet tried that you really think you'd enjoy?

The Brazilian dance called Salsa. I will enjoy this dance when I try it.
To you as a Christian, who are the richest people in the world today?

Yes. A few months ago I built a Raspberry Pi-based MAME machine and I've been playing Super Mario 1,2,3, Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart.

Do you have any vinyl LPs in your music collection? If so, which ones?
Yes, but it has been so long since I listened to them that I honestly don't know what they are.

How did you become a Christian?

I was raised in the Church and made in what was in my mind, a highly logical decision to accept Christ at the age of seven. My line of reasoning was that Jesus loved me and I didn't want to go to hell so it wasn't even a choice really. For a while, I was carried along on the coat tails of my parent's faith. At around 13 I discovered a lot of things all at once and became enslaved to lust and masturbation and shortly after that pornography. I'll keep the details light here, but I can remember going to God again and again and praying and saying, I know you don't want me to do this, please take this sin from me. But I didn't want Christ to lead me, I just wanted to do the right things to please God. I wanted to be good enough for God. God did not answer that prayer, in fact I felt nothing from God and started to question if I were just praying to myself and trying so hard to hear an answer that I was sometimes answering myself.

Eventually, I stopped praying altogether and did what I thought was right in my own sight. That meant that I gave in to what was an addiction. I also made friends with some guys who were also directionless and started smoking pot and generally doing stuff I wasn't supposed to be doing. Eventually the friends stayed behind, but the addiction stayed with me. It ended up being over a decade of a habit that was so destructive I truly believe it stunted my personal growth. I didn't have to go anywhere to seek what I wanted because it was immediately accessible at home. I didn't feel the need to pursue girls and I had no reason to assess the direction of my life because I could bury my head and self-medicate so effectively. And for the most part, I felt no guilt over what was going on. It wasn't until after college that the issues which were being created started to pop up. I had never had a girlfriend, had never been kissed at that point and I couldn't ignore it anymore. I was in an agnostic state of mind. I started to fight against my addictions because I realized that they were bad for me. At this point, you could have said that I was addicted to the computer in general as well and I can't refute that. At this point, I decided to turn to Christ. Even though I had been flirting towards atheism I could not deny the existence of a creator. The problem was, I had turn to God to help me out of my sin when I was younger and then a week or two weeks later I was back at it. I had doubts about whether I was having a religious experience or was just fooling myself. Eventually though I had turned back to God I fell back into pornography. In my mind, it was like "Oh well, I guess I was just fooling myself again." But this time it was different. I had needed God and new it. I could not deny God.

So I started doing what I wanted, but this time I had a viewpoint that it wasn't that God did not exist or was not sovereign, just that I was not doing right. That everything did exist as the bible laid it out, but I was unable to comply and I was just accepting that. The need for companionship was still eating at me, and to make a long story a bit shorter, I ended up on dating websites. While I was in that mode I heard "You know if you would just deny God you could have a girlfriend and regular sex and you'll get to do those things that you always wanted to do." Immediately I was reminded of when Job's wife told Job "Just curse God and die." I knew it was the devil. I didn't even read my bible or pray at that time but still understood that I was under spiritual attack and didn't know why, after all, I was no threat.

Fast forward a bit. I wanted to lose my virginity, but I realized that I'd probably be better off doing that in a relationship, with someone who was willing to take the time and boiled it down to the fact that, actually what would probably be best for me would be to find a girlfriend who was a virgin. As I looked I came across this woman's profile who was a virgin, but also she was Godly and modest and good looking to boot. God used that to crush me. I can't explain it, but it made me sob. I was clearly not being what I was called to be. I was lonely and jaded and was keeping God at bay because I thought that there was no hope for me to be fulfilled in that way through God and yet I was looking at the evidence. In my brokenness, I brought it to God. I told God that clearly, I was unable to run my life the way it needed to be. That I had no idea what I needed. I asked Jesus to be Lord and to lead. On top of that, I desperately wanted to make sure that both God and I knew that I wasn't doing this because of women. I needed God and I needed him badly. I prayed in the corner of the warehouse at work the next morning, seeking God and telling him that It was him that I wanted. He asked me to delete my dating accounts and so I did. That act of obedience was sort of like a consummation for me. At that point, I was 27 and had been addicted to pornography and masturbation for 14 years. God freed me of that. Yes, I have stumbled, but it's nothing like it was. God clearly began a work in me and liberated me and he deserves all glory. Let my testimony stand as an account of his Glory.

What's your struggle right now?

I geuss you could call it a struggle of sorts.I am struggling to understand God's sovereignty in the light of humankind's suffering.To be more precise, how God has been in control despite my mistakes.

Do you have any plans for the second half of this year and if so, do you care to share them with us?

I plan to work and save up money for a cello, which I hope to have by next fall sometime. I hope to get my driver's license. I begin practice for a play in a little under two weeks! There is a summer barn dance in my area that I'd like to go to at least once, and I am going to enjoy my time off from milking cows. Oh, and because it is more than usually hot, swimming sounds really good this year :p.

What is your favourite holiday and why?

Well, turd in the punchbowl that I am, I don't like holidays. They never meant very much to me as a child and weren't emphasized, so I never got attached to any of them. If there is a holiday I dislike the least, it would be Thanksgiving. I like all the different foods and being asked to make something for the family gathering.

Okay, be honest (even if it makes you look bad) - are there groups of people in the world you think you are better than?

Pride and judgment can flare up unannounced and it can be hard to control at times. However, I adhere to the truth. The world is completely hopeless without Christ and if I had anything worth priding myself on that would be it. I cannot pride myself on that either because I did nothing to earn the grace of Christ. We are all made in God's image and in desperate need of grace and redemption. So, no. I am not better than anyone else. I have to be careful not to discount anyone based on who they are.

What's your favorite memory?

I have a few.One would be winning a pair of neon pink rollerblades in a competition as a child ....in the weeks leading up to recieving them in the mail I dreamt about those rollerblades - literally.
Another memory would be winning a trophy in high school for outstanding character and everyone cheering and stomping their feet.I credit that win to God if course.
Another memory was times spent with my cat ,CC.We would play hide and seek in the garden and he was such a wonderful fluff ball and a character - he brightened my childhood.

What's the weirdest thing about your own culture in your opinion and conversely what do you like most about it?

Well my current culture is the Kingdom of Heaven so what's the weirdest thing about it? The fact I live there and yet have never entered the place. What do I like most about it? My fellowship with the Son and Father, and all who call it home.:eek:.

QUESTION: "If you could go back in time, what year would you travel back to and why?
