Okay, so I will officially be back tomorrow. But here is a quote from the author Frederica Mathewes Green on repentance:
Repentance is the doorway to the spiritual life, the only way to begin. It is also the path itself, the only way to continue. Anything else is foolishness and self-delusion. Only repentance is both brute-honest enough, and joyous enough, to bring us all the way home.
