Change Is In the Air

I received an email from the D. Sisters of Mary Mother of the Eucharist Sunday. It puts a demanding deadline on taking care of my student loans, one that will not be met, most likely.

I was upset for a day, now I’m so calm about the email and its implications of not entering, that it surprises even me!

So, I’m awaiting God (and my spiritual director) to provide some clarity about my other options.

I have to discern whether God is saying “yes” to my entering the DSMME, just not at this time, or God wants me elsewhere. It is that elsewhere that I’m waiting for more clarity.


I spent this past weekend at a Confirmation retreat for St James in Redondo Beach. My role there is giving me reason to pause and consider what “elsewhere” might mean.

Hello 2010

I want to wish you all a happy new year! I have experienced a fairly bad 2009, and know that I’m amongst very good company.

I wasn’t on here much before and during Christmas as I had a firewall installed and it worked SO well that it blocked my wireless internet access. Thankfully that has now been cleared up!

So, Merry 8th Day of Christmas!! & Solemnity of Mary, and in the EF – the Feast of the Circumcision [perhaps the men are not fond of that one?].
