While there is still the same turmoil all around me...

While there is still the same turmoil all around me, since Sunday at the retreat, I have had this inner feeling of peace and joy. As the shepherds were praying with me on Sunday, I sat with my hands clenched and I started to cry. They asked me to open my hands to the Holy Spirit. As I did, I cried harder and felt a blackness come over me. Then I felt a lightness and a joy. The tears stopped and I started to praise God. My hands began to raise slowly to shoulder height and I wasn't raising them on my own. I am a "Doubting Thomas" no more!
