"Even our failures can bring forth good if they crush our independence, drive us closer to Christ, & make us more aware of our need of grace. The greatest need of true saints is a greater revelation of the love of God in Christ."

— Paul Washer  (via littlethingsaboutgod)

Today is the one year anniversary of my becoming Catholic! For anyone who doesn’t know, I’m a convert from the Anglican/Episcopalian Church. Best decision ever!

Going to confession today for the first time in 5 months. Wow. It’s been far too long, and I’m nervous, but more than that, my soul is thirsting for grace, so I’m excited!

I’m back from Australia, I’m (semi) recovered from the jetlag, and how are you all doing?

Isaiah 43:18-19 Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.

I’m back from Australia, ya’ll!

Expect regular posting to return soon.

Hello lovely tumblr Catholics, I promise I’m not dead, and neither is this blog. It’s just that I’ve been in Australia for the last six weeks visiting my boyfriend (is he my boyfriend?? this is what we’re trying to figure out. Sigh. Life is complicated.) and I keep getting ill (the newest thing is today my eye has apparently decided to get infected), so I promise I’ll be back soon but PLEASE PRAY FOR ME BECAUSE MY BODY IS PRETTY MUCH FALLING APART (so is his actually, he has a flu that won’t go away and an eye infection [he probably gave it to me, stupid airborne germs] AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT’S GOING ON WITH MY ROMANTIC LIFE oh dear.


…..Lent, man.
