I've been wanting to blog this for sometime, but haven't been able to work up the nerve until now. I was thinking of simply vanishing, but that really wouldn't be fair to those who've followed this blog for the year and half of its existence, nor to those who have been praying for me. So, here's a final update before I sign off.
After spending almost two months at Holy Resurrection Monastery, I've decided that I want to continue to see if I can be a monk. The brotherhood of the monastery have, against all reason, decided to let me try. So, if all goes according to schedule, I'll be a postulant living at the monastery as of Palm Sunday. In the mean time, I've been settling up affairs here in Fort Collins and, tomorrow, I head off to my folks place to spend a couple of weeks with them. I guess the moral of this story is "Be careful what you pray for..."
To those who read this blog, thank you... I'll never understand why so many of you kept returning when I had so little of interest to say. To those who commented on this blog, thank you for your input... you made this blog far more interesting than it ever could have been on its own. To those who prayed for me during the last year, thank you... don't you dare let up on those prayers now!
