Apple Harvest

by Sr Nunother

It’s time to gather apples.  I look forward to apple crisp, sauce, pie and dumplings. It makes me wonder, though, how my personal harvest looks this year. Jesus encourages us to bear fruit — fruit that lasts. In the familiar parable of the three servants (Matthew 25:14-30), I most closely resemble the third, who hid his coin and hoped for the best. How have I faced my personal impossible? It’s my prayer that between last year’s harvest and this, I’ve listened and invested with faith and courage.

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.
