What a great word for the prompt. As a recovery alcoholic and cocaine addict I look back and see many great and horrible memories of all my antics and yet none of them are truly indelible.
What is and will always be indelible to me is how transformational, faith affirming and life changing my experience was during the St. Cecilia Catholic Church and Mission Concepcion ACTS Retreat that I attended 11/30/17-12/3/2017. The speakers who shared about Adoration, Community, Theology and Service were extremely powerful. The activities that we participated in were very faith affirming. But for me, the most indelible memory for me is that I left my alcoholism and cocaine addiction at the Alter of the Tabernacle along with some health issues that I have also been struggling with.
Since the retreat my faith, which has always been strong but has a times wavered, has just been increased tenfold, my wanting to increase service to not only my church St. Cecilia Catholic but my parish as well. The greatest thing to come out of attending the retreat is that since the retreat I have no desire nor the crippling obsession for alcohol or cocaine. Along with this several of those physical health concerns regarding my lower back etc. have pretty much disappeared!!
God is good all the time!! All the time, God is good!!!
