***i've Turned Over a New Leaf~***plz. Read*** (Page 1)

Hey everyone! This may be kindda long but please read--

**the other day I was walking jaydyn around at like 2 am so she'd go to sleep and I saw the innocence in her eyes and I thought of what a great life I wanted to give her...So I started thinking about god. I woke my mom up and we started talking and she said that when she got preg. With me(she was unwed and 21) my grandma dragged her to an abortion clinic to abort me, but my mom refused and had me. I started thinking about what would have been of me if she would have aborted me?!? I wouldn't be here..Im here b/c of gods will. I went to church sunday and got a new perspective on life..I redidicated my life to christ!--they are giving jaydyn a baby dedication sometime soon to essentially "give her back to god"-- im going to start getting into church, going every wednesday , and sunday. Teach jaydyn about god and get her into church. Im going to b a devout christian.. Im even thinking of giving my testimony at church.. To some of you I know this comes a huge suprise, but the bible says u must profess ur faith by ur mouth--to let everyone know and not b ashamed, and im not..I want everyone to know my new life..Ive changed in an instant and im so proud of myself-- no more bad things in my life, im washing out the negatives...

Me and zane have gotten back together and were gonna see where things go..Hes a great "father" to jaydyn and loves her very much. Im not having sex again until im married and if he cant hold out then nothing will happen between us.

Thanks for listening, and if I ever said anything to make one of you mad or angry at me-im sorry, please forgive me..
*for jen, ive finally come to terms and I forgive you for what u've done and ive forgiven all that have said something to make me mad or angry with them*

Smile I hope that oneday in everyones future they find god ---ive noticed a huge difference in myself already! Smile

I'm very happy for you. I'm catholis and i've haven't been to church since easter sunday and I miss it. I always say i'm going back because I feel like I have alot of hate in my heart and that's not what I want to teach my kids. But when I go to church and elijah starts climbing over or going under the benches and embarrasses me to the point where I don't want to go back until he's a little older. But I pray every night and ask him to keep me and my family safe. I don't fail on my prayers for now that's all I have. But I will go back, in the meantime my faith is in my heart.
I hope things work out with you and jaydens dad, but remember, it doesn't matter if you change, he has to try to change too. Otherwise it's not going to work. As for the sex I don't think od would think any less of you. You have a child already and you are trying to put your life on the right track. Plus don't make a promise that you might mot be able to keep. Temptation is very powerful, good luck again.

Lol brenda, chris is far from anything of church. Dont you have a nursery? Oh its catholic I dont think they do. I know christian ones do, I used to be a teachers aid. Its true that zane has to be a beleiver too because my pastor always said if your a christian and your with someone whos not, they will only bring you down. They need to beleive too.

Oh, I thought the name zane was one I never heard. I heard of some christain churches having daycares so poeple could sit in peach at mass. I wish they had one where I lived at. They should do it everywhere. I hope you achieve your goals.

Jordan, I am very very happy for you. Ive been wanting to get more involved in my religion, but it is so true, un-believers(lol is that a word?) do truley bring you down... Kevin is catholic, but doesnt really believe in his religion, so hes like religion-less... Ive been trying to get him to go to my church and become a believer again, but its so hard to actually do it. We will talk about it, but never end up doing it. I need a push, maybe my baby will do the same thing to me as it did to you. ~at least kevin will get married in my church, which involves becoming confirmed there.... So we will have to take like a 2-3 week confirmation class there, maybe that will give him a bit of a religious push.~ I hope everything works out great between you and zane. It would be wonderful for jaydyn to have a father figure in her life, but if not, your a very strong person, and will still do just as good.

If you really wanna get happy, start listening to christian music! Its all I listen too anymore. Pop and rock music, while cool, gets me depressed. There is something about christian music that makes me subconciously happy!

Hey
Jordan,
i am so proud of you. People might not believe but I go to church every sunday and I am very into it. I'm not perfect, I don't claim to be, I don't want to be. But I think there is nothing wrong with being around the lord and "in touch" with him. I think it's great how you are proud to tell everyone about your newfound faith and that is an awesome thing! Congrats huni! You are doing it for yourself but more for jaydyn and that is wonderful!
