I was talking to my mom earlier about what I wrote yesterday, it's funny but I have gone to her from the very beginning of all I have experienced. She was the first person I told about what I saw on the Eucharist, she is the first one I told when I walked through the Spirit. She knows it all, even the parts of my ugly self when I was in conflict with it. I didn't realize how horrendous the abuse was until much later. I tried to kill the Spirit out of fear that it was an evil rather than from God. When all I felt was nothing but joy in my soul. The smile that was constant. The sheer happiness. When I look back now to that special time of complete abandonment to His Love, His forgiveness he was giving me life after I completely died to the world.

It wasn't only knowing holiness, it was apparent when I gave up so much more, such as the television, listening to regular music, prayer became a central focus. The pictures that I took I didn't understand, yet they were good food for my soul. Each time I was before the Blessed Sacrament I would always pray for the world, for the head of our Church and all the priest and religious. Pretty much everybody. I even prayed for the conversion of the evil one. It was a time of growth and healing. Growth in spirituality and healing from a deep wound that would have destroyed a weaker person. It was a time of grace and blessing, a rebirth of a soul. That is probably why the title of this blog was started, from an interior prompting. Well anyway, I can't say I was confused about what happened, just on the understanding of His calling, for at the time I needed to learn most of all and to come to acknowledge what has transpired. I was refusing to do that, out of my own feeling of uncertainty of my own self resulting from the abuse in the bad relationship. When a person doesn't believe in themselves how will they believe in what they see or hear when it is presented to them from God. Can I then say he went way beyond the norm to ensure that I believed in myself and his gift to me. Oh very much so.

When I was talking to my mom earlier we pretty much came to this same conclusion but in a different way. As I mentioned prior to this, I had kept my love for God a constant throughout my life. I went to him for everything, and He came and touched me and entered my heart in a tangible way. A moment that I will never forget, but I will relate it at another time in this Advent journey.

Thank you mom for all the talks we share.

When the Divine touches our hearts noone should remain the same.

This is why we can look back and say to ourselves 'how could I do that or endure this'..But through the pain we still see the Hand of God that is blessing indeed.

Peace & JOY:)

Marie PS: Sorry for my absence. I have been feeling so tired lately.
