well i confessed for the first time today. it was the most liberating experience. i went to my RCIA director and asked her when our penance is and its not until march 24th. i told her that i have such a heavy feeling on my chest about my sins. she said that we can talk to the priest and see if he would do it. and he said yes, after mass would be a great time. so i attended daily mass and after mass we went into the confessional together. and i cried and told him everything. and he just looked at me with such compassion in his eyes and told me that its okay and he told me my penance that i need to do tonight. we said the “our Father” together and he absolved me from my sins.
the weight has been lifted and i feel LIGHT!! i feel sooooo good!
and today is my 10 year wedding anniversary!!
what a great gift to myself and to my husband who can enjoy ME today without the burdens of my past sins!!
