    I love God as much as I do because he makes total sense.
    Even when it is something that I need to change, He is never wrong.
    When life is so crazy, I can close my bedroom door or go to the chapel and within those walls and in His mercy He renews me through the loud quiet.
    And when I pray thru work, It is all for the glory of God.
    And when prayers are answered, it is just so amazing.
    He has answered so many of my prayers.
    He thinks I am special enough to deserve His love, well their just isn’t anything more wonderful then that.
    When all of the world is against me, you hold me up O Lord.
    Psalm 54:6
    Behold, God is my helper; the Lord sustains my life.
    I also just think it would be so awesome for the young to answer to the call.
    God bless, Angela
    P.S. Thanks to all of you Father Mauritius, Sister Fidelis Marie Lanowich, and Sister Gabriel Mary, and Brother Damian. It is because of your devotion and the love that EWTN has guided me in that I made the switch five years ago and became Catholic. Thanks so much for spreading the love. And their won more, she was an amazing woman…Sophie Rose Miller. I wanted to be just like her. She is gone now, but oh how I loved who she was.
    Sorry it’s long, but thank you for your time.
