Never put off untill tomorrow, what you’re afraid to do today!

By Sr. Nun Other

My slight variation on a Ben Franklin motto reflects a personal inclination to procrastinate when I fear the unknown. Unfamiliar or uncomfortable tasks, once ignored, become monsters of exaggerated importance.  The longer I wait, the more consumed I am by their presence.

Fear is a loose cobble stone waiting to be tripped over; faith and trust wait with sturdy arms to prevent the fall.

About Sr. Nun Other

May 16, 2012, completed my 30th year as a Sister. It was both a milestone and just another day in an interesting journey. Some of those thirty years included singing with Gloriae Dei Cantores, marching in Spirit of America band, and serving on our Sisters Council. As a monastic, I live surrounded by beauty and within a frame work of opportunity and possibility. I'm sixty-four (much to my surprise) and extremely grateful for my life as a sister - past, present, and future.
