Thank you everyone, for your comments.
I'm sorry. I don't think I ever did e-mail you as I lost track of this thread.
I think you have explained it more clearly. I agree, and I thank you.
Still this is complicated for me. Someone said that God forgives. Does that mean if you take the wrong path, but then ask forgiveness eventually then it is okay (since it is supposed to be okay once you are forgiven)to stay on the current path? And what if you aren't truly happy on that current path? *sigh* I guess I'm still confused. Is it possible to be confused and still agree with White Wolf at the same time?
LOL! My Dad is a pastor, and I suppose I could ask him, but it seems like when I talk about this subject with my family they get very worried. Then instead of answering my question in general, they ask all sorts of personal questions and want to know whats going on. They also start making declarations about my happiness with my life (those declarations being whether I seem to be truly happy) I know..I know..I love them for it. Family is, after all, one of the most precious gifts I have been given in my life.
