Advent preparation

Finally, I made it to the confessional this morning. Waited for 1 1/2hours for my turn. Gosh the wait was torturing. I wished I could confess my sins right then. There were even people who cut the cue. I wasn't happy, but I knew that I was willing to wait no matter how long it would take me.

I couldn't help but shedding tears when I was confessing my sins. I felt really awful. Really, really awful to have hurt and disappointed the One whom I love so much. I've seen people coming out from the cubicle with red watery eyes, but I've never expected myself to be emotional during Confession. I wonder if my parents saw me wiping off my tears or not. I felt kind of embarrased.

Anyhow, it is wonderful to receive Reconciliation, my burden of sin has been totally lifted up! I'm freeeeee!!!! And I'm all ready to welcome the birth of Jesus... into my heart!!

For all of you who have experienced God's mercy, shall we send Him our greatest gratitude? "Thank You, Lord" by Don Moen... (if you don't know how to sing, just say it out loud!) =)

I come before you today
And there's just one thing that I want to say
Thank you lord, Thank you lord
For all you've given to me
For all the blessings that I cannot see
Thank you lord, Thank you lord

With a grateful heart
With a song of praise
With an outstretch arm
I will bless your name
Thank you lord
I just wanna thank you lord
Thank you lord I just wanna thank you lord
Thank you lord

For all you've done in my life
You took my darkness and gave me your light
Thank you lord, Thank you lord
You took my sin and my shame
You took my sickness and healed all my pain
Thank you lord, Thank you lord
