Community, sisterly love and congregating with her own kind was now over and out of the question. She vowed to cut their relationship and denounce all spiritual ties. The last Church's accusations became the final straw that broke her camel's back.
Beth decided to leave them veiled in their ignorance. She will do her own seeking and her own heavenly worship. A personal and honest relationship with Him was truly her only desire.
Thirst and hunger grew with her as she aged.
Elizabeth, at seven new God. No questions. Her Godly quest was all consuming, burning, and captivating. The three needs: Consuming, captivating and burning, would not allow childish ignorance to stop her.
Even though, there were times she often questioned her isolation and loneliness. Mumbling, "I wonder if these two thorns will follow me through out life.
"Why must loneliness and isolation accompany me?" In due season she recognized the answer, that time and happen-stance were the rich soil that loneliness and isolation grew. And, there in her heart they took root.
As the saying goes, "mountain tops are often lonely,"
Beth knew this truth.
And, though mountain tops are isolated and lonely places they are the places where God speaks clearly.
When older she chose speaking with God rather than a loving companion or basking in the warmth of little children giggles on Christmas morning.
Beth was nearing the golden years and so far she remained alone. Looking in the mirror and thinking, "if my hair was as white as Moses would they believe me?"
Resolved to her independent fate, little thought was now given to the two accompanying thorns, isolation and loneliness.
Elizabeth Catherine being too intelligent, and too high strung for an average man realized her destiny. Unless she change and surrender her quest and give her relationship with God second place an Earthly romantic relationship would be impossible. No man could measure up to her standards. The man would need to be Jesus Christ's right hand servant and that man was never found.

The shouts and sneers of the mean-spirited people,
"Your the spirit of Anti-Christ! Your the seed of The Nephilim! Your of The Devil, you witch! Leave this town forever!" Actually, the daggers of hatred came from The Devil himself.
Yet, her ears being so deaf, which she acknowledged as merely a human frailty,
Beth, so able and willing to hear God never gave way to self pity; even though, she could have given into her pain and sufferings.
