A Better Choice

by Sr Nunother  

I see the glass half empty, the tarnish on the silver lining, and I’m nobody’s sunshine on a cloudy day.  I’m an expert at finding the one thing that could go wrong. Worry is my addiction — trivial and unfruitful. It’s a pattern established in childhood with (I suppose) valid reasons. There is, however, no excuse. Jesus came to us fragile, helpless, and surrounded by danger. What if He had arrived worried? He set instead an example of steadfast trust in all circumstances and I can choose the same.

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.
