Just Because

By Sr. Nunorther

I think God made some creatures just because they’re sublime and surpass imagination. In warmer weather, our ornamental fish pond swirls with the vivid colors and patterns of Asian Koi, offering a silent invitation to stop and consider. Asian cultures find rich symbolism in the beautiful, graceful Koi — attributes such as loyalty, courage, unity, fidelity, and strength in times of adversity. Now the pond is layered in ice and the Koi rest near the bottom, dormant until their spring awakening.

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.
