This is my space to talk, learn and be inspired by God. I am newly Catholic, I completed RCIA this year and was Baptised and Confirmed at Easter.

It’s not a multi-cultural school if at age 6 you know who Shiva and Hanuman are but have never heard of the Holy Trinity

Life is amazing

Swear I’m not that ugly as in the newspaper

I have now been a full CATHOLIC for 6 weeks!  How incredible.  I must say, that the Spirit has blessed me with unlimited supplies of happiness and joy.  Not a day goes by without me feeling God close by me.  My life has truly resurrected its self and I am so alive.

I was picked as some sort of poster girl for God’s work, so I had my face all over a page in the Scottish Catholic Observer, which was incredibly humbling and also a little embarrassing because the photograph was taken MINUTES after I was Baptised, Confirmed and had my First Communion all in one glorious night - so my face looks RIDICULOUS.  Everyone said I literally didn’t stop smiling once - my face HURT, and I was really, very nervous.  I had a family dinner afterwards to celebrate, so the pressure of that combined with the sheer VOLUME of emotion involved in getting THREE SACRAMENTS in one go was absolutely mind-boggling and I can say I was the most exhausted I have ever been in my life.  

It was beautiful.  
I would like to thank everyone on here that communicated with me during my RCIA journey, you are all wonderful.

I AM THE BLANKET QUEEN. 
I wish I could stay wrapped up in blankets forever. Or not really, I want to see and experience things but ultimately I’d love to build a home with someone that I can always come back to and feel safe and excited by the little things - like spending time under and around blankets. So basically what I do now except on a more permanent, long term, and not so lonely scale. 
Today I got up super early to give my mum gifts. Then I went to work for a couple of hours which was interesting to say the least. This morning was quite thought heavy and I don’t know, it was nice for it to be thought heavy about ideas rather than people for a change (I’m always thinking about people). Then I met up with a lovely mate and we went to see The Hunger Games. Now I will understand the references every third post on tumblr makes… I really enjoyed it. I thought it was a great movie. Visited my gran before I came back home. 
I’ve enjoyed today. Feeling a bit off. A bit apprehensive. A little worried about the sort of things we all probably worry about but I still really enjoyed today and I think it is important to notice that.

Stephanie, seeing your face a moment ago was like looking at a very cherished thing.  Familiar and exciting at the same time.  I found you on Facebook but I can’t add you - you add me http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003715302118
