Then came home and watched Colin Firth do his thing as Mr. Darcy

A few years ago a friend of mine once borrowed our cabin at Cultus for a "Spiritual Retreat". As this intrigued me, I asked him for an hour by hour breakdown of what a retreat like that would look like. In addition to much time spent in prayer, movies were watched. Many movies.

So, following his example loosely, I've spent the past 4 days having my own version of a spiritual retreat. Have cried and prayed til exhausted. Then recovered with a fluffy bit of eye candy. Cut the chocolate consumption down by half, and only had two meals a day. (My idea of fasting.) Haven't answered the phone. Didn't blog. And prayed some more.

My house didn't get clean. None of the Christmas stuff got put away.

But I think I might be ready to face the new year.

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Grace
2. Mercy
3. Forgiveness
