Ordinary Greatness

by Sr Nunother

To be or just to be, now that’s the question. I waste a lot of time trying to be something — or someone — I’m not.  I self-produce stress because I demand to be important. In these early days of spring, I’m drawn to simple things of great beauty. They take their place in the renewal of life, eloquent in their humility. Do I need to impress God and make sure He knows I’m capable of great things? Or, do I rest in His plan, His understanding of who I am and where I fit best.

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.
