It's Unfolding Before My Eyes!
Gentle Reader: I am overcome. It's really happening. Soon, I will be a FULL member of Christ's Church. I'm happy, scared, awed, humble all at once. Who am I that the Lord should want me? Former big-time dissenter, still a troublemaker, still a sinner, yet, here I am, Lord.
Yesterday, evening we had rehearsals for the Vigil. It really hit me. All of the 10 people that will be up there with me, in whatever their particular situation is, were all radiant and grinning nonstop.
I've been reflecting upon what a difference a short span of time can mean. 2 years ago, I had never even heard of the Triduum. Easter was almost just another Mass day but more crowded. The rituals were meaningless to me. For a long time, I thought they were stupid.
Really, I'm crying right now. I can't even find the words to adequately describe what I'm going through right now.
I took today thru Monday off work so I can really just be with Him as much as possible. I may try and make this a yearly tradition.
Thank you to ALL who have prayed for me. God Bless You.
