His Name

by Sr Nunother

In church this morning, we sang the hymn How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds.  Its beautiful words, written by John Newton, speak of healing, grace, protection, and love.  I realize that often I speak His name in desperation, exasperation, or when I want something, and rarely in love and gratitude for all that Jesus is.  The name of Jesus, if planted in my heart, will quietly bear fruit.

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.
