What a terrific story to share with us. It is inspirational :-)
I must confess that I, too, long for this type of communion with God, but I usually feel too lazy to put in the effort like you did with all of that fasting! Excellent for you, and now if you please, pray for the rest of us 'slackers' on the 5doves, as I'm sure I'm not the only one :-)
Blessings to you!
