I attended the Pacific Northwest Meeting's silent weekend and the goodness is still with me. Here are some of my dividends:

Am I strong? When the light of God shines, YES. It pleases me that some people think me strong.

Thou Art With Me -- that's the answer I got when seeking God pretty blatantly (though silently).

The silent weekend I attended one year ago put me on a better path, and I have followed through fairly well since then. And I need to keep it up.

I loved the silence. I wish it could last longer, or come around more often.

I am pleased I finished my month of retail abstinence successfully. I want to quantify the success and am eager to do it. I want to continue the frugality, if not outright abstinence.

I missed my daughter very intensely and know I need to find a new norm now that my role as "full-time mom" is over. Still I felt my love for her so intensely I left her a phone message that if she ever needs a spare part, she can have any of mine.

In the labryinth God reminded me, very bluntly, that if I don't take better care of my body it will wear out prematurely. Not only will I die too soon, but I'll be uncomfortable and unable.

There were other messages but that's enough for now.
