7 Quick Takes Friday ~ Vol 92

— 1 —  This Week’s Post:  How Much Time Should You Give Him?  6 months.

“…the marriage discussion should be on the table, prompted by him, in the first 6 months…”

— 2 —  Next Week’s Post:   Even secular, non-chaste guys agree that a girl should not wait around for a guy to decide.  I will share an article by a secular, non-chaste dating ‘coach’ who backs up the limited time factor!

— 3 —  Not Alone Series:  The girls are back!!! And, they had 15 contributors along with several new ‘hello, my name is’ introductions on their Facebook private page (come and join us!).

    This week they discuss ways they can be more involved at church or in their communities.  Check out all their posts over at Morgan’s blog!  I am so proud of all of them and felt so edified by their sense of service to the Lord and His Church.  Way to go, girls!

— 4 — Spotlight On:  This week’s spotlight is on Mark and Katie Hartfiel as they are going to be on Life on the Rock tonight at 8:00pm.  Remember Katie wrote the book, Woman In Love (which I loved) and I did a review. Check them out!

— 5 —  Clouded By My Unmet Needs:  I read the article called “My Survival Story” which was about surviving the hook-up culture in college.  There was one line that really caught my attention as I think it explains what goes on inside the head and heart.  What are your unmet needs and what are you doing to manage them and heal?
“I was clouded by my unmet needs.”

— 6 —  Still Thinking On-line Dating Is Stupid?:  Check out this video!

— 7 —   The Lord Loves Repentence:   Saint Romanos Melodios (around the year 560) wrote this:

“Let us meditate on the Ninevites…, let us listen to what they did. After the terrifying proclamation made by Jonah before this gluttonous and drunken people…, like capable workmen they made hast to restore the city their evil deeds had destroyed, taking a sure rock for its foundation…: repentance.

Son of the One God, O only God, who carry out the will of those who love you, protect them in your mercy… As in former days you took pity on the Ninevites… so today release from judgment those who sing to you and grant me forgiveness in return for my confession… Since I have no works worthy of your glory, at least save me, my Savior, for my words of contrition: you who love repentance.”

God love and bless you!
