The date, August 23rd, 2009 is noted in my Bible

I can now say with conviction that I am a Christian – fully assured of eternal salvation.  I’ll post later as to how I came to this conclusion.  No doubt, some will say something to the effect of, “Well, ‘bout time!”  For now, however, let me just say that I am grateful to those who have in their own gentle ways (or otherwise, too) challenged my “faith hypothesizes” and gave me the space and the freedom to ask questions and vent frustrations.  Thank-you for not giving up on me.
