Update :)
« on: May 24, 2010, 11:02:52 PM »
I went to Great Vespers at the mission this evening and it was so awesome to be home!
I pretty much started crying (err leaking tears...) as soon as I walked through the door, but I met the priest and a couple of the parishioners.
Everyone was really nice to me. I changed my appointment time with the priest tomorrow so that I can confess.
I figured that since I received such an outpouring of caring and concern here that I would let you all know that I am continuing to follow through on my return to my Faith, and thanks again for everyone who has kept me in their prayers.

It is the nature of angels not to fall, it is the nature of demons to fall and not get up, it is the nature of humans to fall and get up.

Many years!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
