Coming Soon~My Unabridged Story

Since beginning this blog back in November, I have revealed little bits and pieces of myself. Several of my readers have asked if I have my entire return to the Church story anywhere. For the most part it has remained in my head. Even before anyone asked this I had thought about posting it; I know I always enjoy reading the conversion/reversion stories of others.
On one level doing this should not require much thought; either I do it or I don't, and as for the story, it speaks for itself. On another level, for me this is going a bit outside my usual comfort zone. So after some prayer and some soul searching as to "what's my motivation", I have decided to go ahead and post it all. My motivation is simple: I just think that those of you who read this blog should know who is on the other side of the keyboard. Also, if somewhere along the way any of my experience helps someone, all the better.
I finally have the whole thing written out. I will be away for the next 3 days for a conference and unable to post, so I will have it up by next weekend.
Have a blessed week~be back on Thursday or Friday!

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
