Another new development is I had my formal enterence ceremony!
I received my symbol to show that I am in formation with the Adorers! It's a beautiful heart and cross. The red stone in the middle stands for the blood of Christ. This is the symbol I will wear until I take 1st vows.
The ceremony was nice and simple. One thing did catch me off guard and that was how nervous I was that morning. I was sick to my stomach and I wasn't sure I was going to go through with it. Why did I feel this way? I have no idea. I don't even know how to describe how I was feeling. I talked with my vocation director, shed some tears, and walked into the chapel with butterflies still in my stomach. I was beyond nervous standing in front of the chapel with all eyes on me. But it all went off without major incident!
It was an amazing weekend and I look forward to this journey!
