Srewtape Letters

Screwtape Letters is this amazing book by C.S. Lewis,My Aunty introduced me.I told her how i taught i was a new age christian and i guess she almost felt like, after everything we have been through, maybe this book would help you realize the devils devices and just maybe you will see.

Honestly, the books isn’t easy to understand for me (The language, the ways I have to remember what he means about when he is describing the enemy, somehow I’m not sure if he is still speaking about the subject matter) but I love what it stands for, i love how simply put parts of it are.

Chapter 3 Review: Prayer

What Screwtape wants wormwood to know:

Keep the patient from the serious intention of praying altogether.

Remove real concentration of will and intelligence in the prayer.

Coleridge (A poet) didn’t teach people how to pray well (“He did not pray with moving lips and bended knees but merely composed his spirit to love and a sense of supplication) {this is trash not prayer}.

Make them believe their bodily position makes no difference to their prayers *yikes*.

Make the patient (the Christian) think more about themselves than about God (the enemy). Keep them watching their own minds and trying to produce FEELINGS there by the action of their own wills. (They want charity make them want a feeling, want confidence make them want a feeling).

Read the rest and now, I’m lost again, but there is a reference to people that have objects that they pray to and keep them looking at the object as the thing to pray to. (makes you think about the other religion *shall not be named*).

Your affectionate uncle,

Screwtape.

Beautiful way to close a letter if you ask me.

to sit in darkness

for the love of hope

panic. irrational panic. nothing is okay. i am not okay. i do not want to be here. i do not want to do this anymore.

i can’t cry in public. i cannot lose my shit in public, around all of these people, around these strangers. I just want to get home. And cry. and sleep. I could sleep forever and it would be okay.

I hop on the next bus home with blurried eyes and an equally blurried mind. I wonder what people think. I wonder if anyone can tell I’m not okay, that I might not ever be okay. I wonder how many people hop on busses and think this same thing, i wonder how many people wonder if they’re seen.

i type some letters on the screen and then erase them. several times.
i can’t do
i’m really h
i need hel
I’m really struggling right now. Please pray…

2015 Top 100 Questions to Ask Your Potential Boyfriend/Girlfriend

raymondarthur's Blog

Dating is all about having fun, but at some point if you do find yourself with someone that you are thinking of maybe having something a little more long term; there are certain topics you should cover. You will save yourself and them a lot of everything if you talk about these things at some point. Again, when that point is will depend on you and what you think the other person is ready to respond to. You may consider making a list and have them answer the ones they are able to answer. It is interesting also, maybe, the questions they can’t or don‘t want to answer. I think this would be a fun exercise either way! 😀 I pulled a list off the net and modified all of the questions; dropped a few and added some. In no particular order:

Okay, I’ve read the list EVERYONE should read…

DASH BOARD INDICATORS AND THEIR MEANINGS

GIDITRAFFIC

Ever wondered what those blinking or stagnant blips on your dashboard meant? wonder no more, here you’ll find a list of dashboard indicators and what they symbolize.

Since cars don’t speak English, the only way they can communicate their health and well-being to us is through symbols and indicators on your car’s instrument cluster.

Color Implication

For the most part, a symbol in red indicates a potentially serious problem or safety issue. It is also used to indicate an important reminder. Yellow/orange mean something needs to be serviced or repaired soon. If the symbol is flashing, it is truly important that you contact your dealer. A green or blue symbol is for information only, telling you that a system is on or is operating.
