> Were you raised religious or is it something that developed over time? People are known to become more religious as they age, is this a factor with anyone? Or did it have to do with an illness.....? Im thinking about researching this for a paper.
> Im interested in finding out why/how people become religious.

I was lead through all the spiritual rights of a Catholic child but never wanted or yearned for religion until my confirmation in high school. It was then that I began to want to go to church, for myself. I began to go alone and then brought my youngest sibling every Sunday. I joined the choir and am still in it now. I now have an understanding of life: why's and how's of and the reasonings behind things. I just strive to live it better. I know that I will never reach that level; because, that would make me almost saintly. But, I just try to bestow the knowledge that I do have to my family and friends as well as those that I come in contact with. It has helped me through a lot of circumstances in my life, and kept me from dwelling deeper into the darkness; from the knowing of the depths beyond the light, I was able to back out of the tunnel that kept pulling me in.
It is without religion that the world is falling apart and hatred and horror is beckoning at our doors....
We must pray, and pray... to end this darkness of destruction, worry, hatred, and violence that lingers around us....

Keep the Faith

I received this in an email last night, and believe it to fit me just perfectly. My husband agrees.
"Lord, keep Your arm around my shoulder and Your hand over my mouth."
