Wow, can you believe 2008 is about ready to close out? Neither can I! What a year it has been!
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank God for all of you. I am deeply touched that people read my blog and comment. I am blessed by my new online Catholic friends that I know would be even more fun to be around "in real life." I am astonished by all of the wonderful Catholic resources that are available online - the eBooks, message boards, news sites, etc., and have been so grateful to God for His continued education of my soul. It just is amazing to me that I can feel the warmth and love of the online Catholic community, even as I type alone in a room. It's as though the words are gentle butterflies, lightly landing upon my shoulder to let me know that I am not alone and there are so many others on the same path. Praise be to God for each one of you! I pray that the Lord Jesus Christ will make Himself known to you in new ways in 2009 and your faith will grow even stronger!
Later today, I think I'm going to write my "Faith Story." I'm not sure really, what to call it. It's sort of like a "conversion-leaving-realizing-disillusionment-desert time-reclaimer" story. Ha! Does that sound confusing enough?
Well, I simply wanted to wish you all the very best 2009. Despite the gloomy economical forecasts, I am feeling a very strong anticipation for the spiritual forecast of 2009. Hold onto your hats, folks. I think we're going to see some major, glorious spiritual events in the new year!
Much love to you all. ~ Mary Rose <3
