I’m not really a religious person per sa. I feel like I fall somewhere between Christian and Agnostic. Not truly either one but not really neither, makes sense right? Okay I’ll try to explain. I do believe in a higher power, I just happen to call him God and Jesus is his son but I think religion is so much more. It is what gives people hope. Sometimes(okay most time) when I pray, I don’t start “Dear Lord…” I will just say, “Give me strength.” No name but I know it gets where it is suppose to go because I feel stronger.

I also believe in evolution, Dinosaurs and all things science. I used to want to be a Scientist. Honestly, I have an explanation about how all this ties into the Bible story of evolution. I’m not going to explain now, I’ll save that for later.

I will get to the point of why I’m writing about religion today. Someone posted this in a group I belong to. It wasn’t meant for me but it had a lot of power over me today. I felt like this was for me, even though it wasn’t. This is what I want in my future! A partnership. A coupling of souls. Someone who can lean on me and I can lean on them and we give and take.

Ecclesiastes 4: 9-10 comes to mind.
"Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!"

Nice quote. I can understand how you feel, although I am much more on the agnostic side of things.

Thanks. I think I'm squarely in the middle.
