Well, this week has been a little bit crazy.  But I still consider it a success.

I had a lot to shake off, and I think I’ve pretty much shaken it off, with lots of help from the Lord Holy Spirit.  Tonight, I’ve reached the point where I feel I can breathe with clear lungs, think with clear mind, and rest a while in peace.  I feel that my connection with God has finally been restored and my ties to the world have been severed.  I feel much more recollected.  I have my eyes back on the prize.

Tomorrow, the real, positive work will begin: the work of overcoming and ascending.  Tomorrow I can pick up my full regimen of prayer and study.  Tomorrow I resume the great journey heavenward.

So far, so good.
