Last week I was feeling really really lonely. I even thought that it would be ok to just fade away..go to sleep and not wake up as I could no longer stand the loneliness. I prayed and cried to God so hard because I felt that he could at least answer me if I believed in the promises that he has for us. More than anything I wanted direction because I knew I was messing things up doing it my way. Anyway..I sometimes get like that...just part of being human, but this time I felt it more than ever.

So I went to see the old boyfriend and returned the ring and it felt ok..then I came to work the next day and this old customer of mine drops by and asked me if he could use the facility to do his CPR classes through the Red Cross and I thought that was strange because the day before I had gone to the Red Cross to see the old boyfriend. The Red Cross had never really entered my mind before except in a picture of the Captain.

How I got to thinking of the old boyfriend was that I was looking at a picture on the internet of the Captain I had been writing for almost 2 years. The picture was taken during the wild fires and in his hands he was holding a Red Cross cup. Also his name was John and remember telling him that I liked the name John because it was biblical and that I had always liked the name...Then I thought of that ring I have had for 23 years..how it had survived 3 moves, 2 burglaries..All of my jewelry from 23 years ago were gone, even my wedding ring is gone..but the ring remained. The name of the owner of the ring was John and I remembered he worked for the Red Cross doing emergency services. It was so weird. Everytime I think of my singleness..I always think it was been 23 years and that is exactly when I dated that man.

Now the customer that came to my office has been coming here for years and he never mentioned anything about the CPR classes until now. He is a nice Christian guy who went through a very tough divorce a few years ago. He even prayed here at my office after we made the agreement to use the facility. He is really sweet but he is 12 years younger than me with a 12 yr. old daughter.

So this whole thing started with me being interested in firemen who perform CPR and emergency services, and now it is being connected to the Red Cross.

I was a little shocked last week with all the coincidences but didnt think too much of it until my girlfriend mentioned that it was pretty odd.

I dont want to put too much into this..but you know all of the sudden I am filled with hope and somehow know that God is giving me direction and I dont feel so bad anymore.

This all feels like a dream. Maybe this is something that I need to work on as there is some meaning to this. I dont know, but I prefer to feel this way than how I was feeling last week.

Maybe its nothing..but if you can think of anything to add..please do so.

((((2BHAPPY))))

I am glad that I am not the only one who has coincidences happen to them! I have to start believing that they are God's Direction, because I have and still am experiencing too many of them for them to be just mere coincidences.

2B, you wrote in this thread about trying to find someone and being so lonely you didn't care if you woke up. I wonder, then, why did you jump on me when I posted to you about contacting the exbf with the ring? I encouraged you to find things to make yourself happy instead of putting so much focus on a man. You jumped down my throat to tell me that you get plenty of male attention and that you have a very full life. Why did you do that?

2B -

My radar is up. It would not be "God" for you to go from one fixation (or addiction) to another "replacement" fixation. Please do not put alot of weight on the appearance of this man in your life. Stuff happens. And sometimes, the enemy sends a "snare" across our paths, just to distract us from the best path...God's path.

I think you really need to focus on learning to be alone without feeling lonely...feeling complete, without a man at the center of your life (either online or in real life). That would be a VERY healthy priority for you.

2B,

I don't know why you have stopped posting. Perhaps you didn't care for the responses you got.

You may have decided to go ahead and pursue this man.

It's not helpful if we simply enable each other to continue our unhealthy behaviors on this board. In my opinion, that is not support.

I was forthcoming in my email to you about my own struggles, yet you chose to dismiss any similarities in our "stories".

That's your choice.

I know that Taj spoke very directly with you, advice along the lines of facing your fears and learning how to be happy on your own, and you didn't care for that.

I have found that the most destructive lies are the ones we tell ourselves. We continue to do the same things and expect different results. This is the definition of insanity. And I have been there, again and again.

Sometimes when we get very defensive about something, it's the truth we're evading. A bitter pill, but in the long run, there is finally hope for recovery, peace, and true happiness.

All the best to you.

Mary
