A Proper Reliance


Here’s an interesting thought from Proverbs 2: Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding.  To tune is to adjust for proper functioning. It requires arriving at uniformity through sensitivity, while wisdom is the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, and lasting.

We’re surrounded by noise – industrial, air and street traffic, cell phone chatter, popular music, in-your-face newscasters and self-produced thought parades that clamor for attention. And then there’s my internal filter that hears what I prefer to hear, looks for flattery, and permission to take the easy way.

To function well, I need to “tune in” and listen for God’s wisdom instead of my own.

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.
