Yayyyy. Chocolate isn't that dope and you said you prefer chocolate ice cream over vanilla!? Like no....just no
Huh. I'm the ice cream maker in my house and I can make whatever flavor I so desire. In fact, there is some home made chocolate in the freezer right now calling my name.

You can make ice cream? Wow dude you're totally cool, only problem is if you have that kind of power why would you use it to make chocolate when you can make good flavors?

Are you influencing me to the corruption of my powers?? Ok. I'm totally done hijacking this this thread now.

I love my life and what God has done and is doing for me. I am preparing to serve Him full time in non-pastoral ministry. God is the best. He is is everything I need. I know and believe this and He has brought everything together for me so far.

I just get a little sad when I see couples and children sometimes. I would like to cuddle one of them. I like children and have been told that I am very nurturing. Children's ministry was the first one I joined when I got baptised in the late 90s because I love them. If I do not avert my eyes, I regularly see people walking with their children and I feel sad in an almost tangible way. It does not go away, I just become distracted... until it resurfaces again. I also feel that it might be too late for me now as younger women seem to be preferred. Then I go back to my beautiful studies and work, the family relationships and friendships I enjoy, the ministry-related projects and I am fine (perhaps even for quite a while) until I realise that nothing has changed and the pain resurfaces again. I feel like I might drown but maybe I should let the emotion come and just mourn (present? general? singleness) so that feeling is processed and alleviated or maybe the situation will change?? I am praying today but I don't want to pray presumptuously for a mate if it wont happen, nor without faith if it will. I believe that God can change my situation or my feelings if/when He wants to. I talk to Him but I find that it does not always help to mention it to other people.... Perhaps I need to focus on praying for God to reveal His will clearly to me so that I can move on with my life freely. Please pray, fellow singles, because it something which jars my heart from time to time.
@Mayflowe
I understand about loneliness full well and the feeling of watching the years fly by without any noticeable change in circumstance. I will pray for God to search and find a loving and faithful man of your heart's desire and for this to happen sooner rather than later. There is going to be a wonderful and exciting season for you that God will certainly provide.

Lol well thanks for that cx. In my defence it was like 4:00am and i was trying to keep an eye on the baby but it's whatever......*cries internally*
How old are you, is this child yours, and where is the mother? Of course, you are not obligated to answer any of these questions but it would be helpful for me in determining an appropriate response that you might appreciate or benefit you in some small way.

I'm not allowed to have kids until I'm married plus raising children as a single parent is extremely hard and I don't want my children in public school so yea no babies for me, at least not yet.

What an evil and disgusting ting to say! Maybe you are in the wrong site?
It is called sarcasm, or humour. I don’t think it is evil or disgusting, perhaps unfunny.....

Your calling my statement evil and disgusting is judgmental, perhaps it is YOU who are on the wrong site.

And you were mine, until the above statement about chocolate XD.
You're still my frand and you know it! At least you're interest in chocolate makes buying snacks easy cx, like you'd rummage through all the snacks looking for the good ones then you take a trip to the other stuff and get some chocolate.
