Shining forth refreshed

    Oh, Becca, you have been peeking into my heart, seeing exactly how I have revisited my “self”, my God-given self, this past Easter weekend. I exercised a form of retreat and came out feeling EXACTLY as you describe above. What a miraculous serendipity, provided by the Holy Spirit!
