Falling Into Formation


This past Wednesday, February 27, 2013, I was accepted into Formation in the Third Order of Carmel. I don’t think I can be any more full of the Holy Spirit and recognize Him in all things. Our Lord is to be, truly, my spouse. Since this day, my life has seen some very great blessings. One of which is my husband’s acceptance of the Catholic Faith and agreeing to have our Marriage blessed by the Catholic Church, which now will take place on May 4th of this year. The month of our Holy Mother, and first Saturday. We had been living as brother and sister since 2009 when our roads split. I climbed the mountain of our Lord. Reached the top and fell in love with our Lord. As St. Peter did, I wished to build three tents and stay there for all eternity, forgetting what was left at the base of the Mountain. On my decent, not taking the same road that I climbed up, I grew in hope and understanding that I was not leaving the mountain top for ever, but rather just for a time to finish carrying the cross that I had been assigned. I can not put into words all I have seen yet, as most of this week’s events have been moments of pure bliss and affirmation. I understand what love is and it is everything. There is nothing else.
