Hi there!

Post by sunsheenee » Fri Apr 06, 2018 8:50 am

Hello!

I am so thrilled to be writing this since I am not much of a forum person, if you know what I mean. I am shy and most of the time awkward to strangers so this is a new experience to me. Anyways, I am Sunshine from Philippines, 22 years old, and to tell you honestly, very shy. I just finished reading the book and I can say it is the best experience, the best journey I have so far. I get to realize a lot of things, especially about my relationship with Papa, Sarayu, and Jesus. That's why I came here and decided to meet all of you regardless of my shyness. :)

Hello Sunshine, welcome to the forum! I'm very glad that you decided to say hello, despite your shyness. This was the first forum I joined too, many years ago!

My name is Peni, by the way :)

Hi Sunshine, it's nice to meet you. It's brave of you to come here when you're shy. I'm shy too, so I can relate. I'm Cathy from Australia.

Yes... That's what I came here for, to overcome that shyness and just "take a bit of time and a lot of relationship."

Sunshine, we would like to get to know you better but I'm not sure what to ask. It's nice to have you here. Please feel free to share.

So what do you do Sunshine, and what are your hobbies?

Hi again Sunshine, I just realized we are asking about you without giving you any information about us.
Not a reassuring thing to do for someone shy, I know because I've battled being shy in a family that made fun of it.

I'm Colleen and at the moment I'm waiting for the doctor to come in and tell me my test results are all good and I can go home today.
I've been married to my sometimes wonderful husband for 38 years almost 39. Five years ago in 2012 I spent 8 months in the hospital, and it cost me a breast and a leg. They let me keep both arms.😀

I have two almost perfect sons. (I'm not prejudices at all) And of course one perfect son that I kind of borrow from his wonderful mother. Then of course my 5 completely perfect grandsons. (I remind you that I'm not at all prejudices) Ages 19, 7, 6, 5, 4.

That's a quick look at who I am. I hope we can get to know each other better as time goes on.
It is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me.
