Botanically Speaking

By Sr. Nun Other

It’s sunflower season. Whether in a garden or a vase, they stand as uncomplicated and unpretentious sentinels of joy. An interesting fact about sunflowers: they turn their heads toward the sun, following its course each day. In so doing, they produce healthy fruit, tiny, edible seeds that burst with nutrients. I make life difficult and pursue joy as if I can earn it. What if I were to simply follow the Son each day, without question or resistance?

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.
