Convent Library Redecorated

This past winter, we redecorated our Convent Library. It took weeks to prayerfully and creatively select paint for the walls, new carpet, upholstery fabrics, art work, and other decorative items. A committee of four, we battled through opinions and hurt feelings to a very satisfying result.  One evening, while enjoying the finished room’s comfortable beauty, it occurred to me that the decorating process was not unlike God’s working in my heart.  As the master interior decorator, He selects the fabric of my life, occasionally orders new curtains in the form of change, replaces the familiar old with innovative new and requires only that I trust Him.

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.
