Through Baptism the Holy Spirit came to rest in my soul. He has been my guide and inspiration ever since I can remember. Forgive me for sometimes forgetting to consult Him when faced with a problem. The outcome would have been better if I had done so. Your ways are always the way we should go; of course, being human I had to learn from my mistakes. I've had my share of them mostly through ignorance and lack of reflection. I repented for having done this. Thank you for guiding my path and always steering me back to You. Thank you for a great life. -Amen.
