Tonight Is a Night of Forgiveness and Thanks

I went to Confession (other names for this Sacrament are Reconciliation and Penance) tonight and, without going into detail of the sins I committed, I can tell you that it was wonderful to hear those words from Father tonight. As I finished up, and before my Absolution, he said “Just remember tonight is a night of forgiveness and thanks.” I suppose that is why this Sacrament holds a very special place in my heart. It is what reminds me that no matter how often or what I do to fall away from God’s grace God will always take me back. This is why I don’t dread going and sometimes I actually look forward to it.

Anyway, try to be more forgiving and thankful that God has forgiven you. Then every day will be special for you, too!

God bless!


About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at, and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
