Sacred Heart of Jesus, all for Thee!
I wonder if we miss each other at the same times. If when I’m thinking about you, you’re thinking about me too. If a day that’s difficult for me is also difficult for you. I wonder if you feel the way I do.
It gets easier to resist the temptation to text you… but being without you hasn’t gotten any easier. I’m trying, I am. And I am happy most of the time. I know you are too. But it’s so hard sometimes when I come home in the evenings and I’m just… alone. I don’t get to tell you about my life. I don’t get to hear about your adventures. I don’t get to snuggle with you and not say anything because we don’t need to.
I miss so many things. I’m even sort of missing things that didn’t happen. Like the children we never had, the adventures we never went on, the places we didn’t see, the kisses I never gave you.
I miss you terribly. I’m trying to let go. I have to, I know. You’ll make a wonderful priest, and it breaks my heart because I’m still in love with you. Despite my best efforts, I’m still in love.
It feels like an eternity since I last spoke to you…. It’s been 3 weeks. I’m not sure how that’s possible. Feels like a lifetime.
As you may know, Valentine’s Day has become our favorite holiday here at Striped Sweater. While this year might be our last for making cards, it doesn’t mean we don’t have some great new masterpieces to share. See you February 1st when we’ll post the first one and then another one the next day… and the next day… and the next day.
Spongebob Valentine’s day cards have a special place in my heart. :)
Cathedral of South Saint Louis
This is Saint Francis De Sales Oratory in Saint Louis,
In June of 2005 St. Franics de Sales was closed by the Archdiocese of St. Louis and was consolidated with another neighborhood parish. The church building, and campus was scheduled to be torn down and sold.
However, it is today ran by the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, In July 2005, the church building, and campus was given to the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest to maintain and administer the sacraments according to the 1962 Missal. The Archbishop of St. Louis, His Grace, the Most Reverend Raymond L. Burke erected the church as an Oratory of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest . Today, St. Francis de Sales Oratory serves the whole archdiocese of St. Louis and is the center of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.
Stephen took me here when I visited last spring. It’s beautiful.
Ugh, I just feel so weird.
My friends keep getting married and I just found out that one couple is already pregnant, and I’m sooo happy for them and it’s wonderful, but it’s also makes me sad because I want to be the one getting married and having babies, and then I feel guilty for being sad when I should be happy, and I’m just like what am I doing with my life and why am I on this dating fast and why the heck does Stephen have to go be a priest because I really don’t want to get married to or have babies with anyone else, but I’m trying to be open to the idea but it doesn’t really seem to be working because I’m just as in love with him as ever, and I’m worried that he doesn’t love me anymore when it shouldn’t matter because we aren’t together but I want us to be together but we can’t be for multiple reasons and besides, I’m on a dating fast, so I shouldn’t be thinking like this anyways and DANGIT THIS ALL STARTED BY LOOKING AT FACEBOOK
I cannot escape it any longer.
