how you doing here?
i'm doing good, just trying to find out how this site works, why wouldnt they make chatting free? not everyone wants to / can afford to pay it, i understand it though, to make this site go around :p but still lol. I guess if people really are lonely, they'll reach out hopefully, just sometimes it's easier in a PM, you know?
lol how are you

yeah, I dunno bout the chatting stuff. The laptop I use doesn't support it, and I've yet to figure out what the "perks" are for paid members other than chat upgrade stuff. I've been here a little over a week myself, and while it can be slow to have a "conversation" through the threads, I've found some great people that way. Look over the forums, jump in on a topic or star you'r own, you'll eventually find a place to "click"

Never tried chatting myself, but forum PMing is still free, isn't it? (havn't tried it in a while, but I know that it used to be) If it is, you can PM me any time.

God bless you, brother SO

I don't know what forum PMing is, but since I've been here a lil over a week, what I've found is when I click on the envolope @ top of site by the bell, it says I have to be a paid member to do that, but if a paid member msgs me I can reply there.

It's those quite moments I hear the Lord best. I guess that's why I enjoy it so much now. I use to go absolutely nuts in quite moments. Back when I was a teen, I ALWAYS had to have something going, music, tv, anything! BUT I never really heard much, even when it was quiet, there was noise running through my head due to always having it on. So I missed stuff the Lord was trying to tell me back then. Even now I look back and think WHOA! LORD you TRIED to tell me that then, I just wasn't listening. Psalm 46:10 says "Be still and know that I am God" anyway................

Ask away, your gonna get A LOT of different replys from people about stuff like this, you have to learn to judge these things for yourself. But DOn"T WORRY! The Holy Spirit WILL lead and guide and teach you. now for my answer:

Down near my stomach.......... I don't really know how to explain this, and it can be a source of frustration for me, esp since my kids are starting to ask , but, you just KNOW. You KNOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW. The Holy Spirit is a Gentleman. He's NEVER going to force Himself upon you. Sometimes, and maybe you've heard this phrase before, it's just a still small voice.

So Soph, I'd love to chat more with you on this sometime, but I've gotta get offline here, kids be home any minute, and afternoons/evenings here get distracting. Blessings...........
