Here in Western NC we whine over our beer. It's too cold -- though I do appreciate that the cold, dark and windy days so closely match my mood. People say, "Hi, how are you?" and I can just wave my hand at the sky vaguely and say, "Like that".

Of course if you ask a lady here how she feels about you she can wave at the sky and "like that" to you so you have to be careful.

Honestly, I don't know for sure. I have a sense that marriage is the vocation God has in mind for me, but it's hard to discern this without someone to discern WITH. I think it would be much more clear if there was a face on the mystery man of my dreams.


In the meantime I'm seeking to give God every opportunity to introduce me to my spouse. Additionally I will be living at a Dominican convent for two weeks in May. Trying to keep my heart open!

I guess we don't know ourselves that well. Only God knows our perfect match. Given all consideration-- even finding that perfect match may not lead to a life of marriage and happiness. if marriage is a mystery, then we'll all have to be brave and find out.

I do not feel I am called to the sacrament. I feel it is distrubing as a man for me to want to get married. There is so sort of perversion if you seek out such a vocation without the other's permission. HOWEVER, I do feel I cannot keep my light under a basket. With the gifts the Lord has given me they appear to be suited for marriage. I build those traits so if there is that moment then I am fully ready. There will be so many obstacles either missing or reduced in a marriage with me on the lessons I have leared from the married.

My life has been to develop the traits for a husband instead of that of a religious or parish priest. I meet regularly women several years older than me and younger than me that marriage probably would have been great if that age difference was not there. I will be that age someday and she will get older too. So I just keep Jesus as my focus and put effort into meeting a woman who is running the race the same as me. My face is set like flint; so rejection is not a hurdle.

I think deep down we all have a desire to be loved and to share love.

One quote I came across that rang so true to me when I was feeling so heartbroken was the following :

"To Love and Be Loved is the greatest happiness"


I realize we can be instruments of God's love outside of marriage but sometimes a little help from another human being can help.
I pray for all of us singles to find that true and pure love that comes from God and to spread it with others.


Blessings ...
