Never Alone

By Sr. Nun Other

I awoke today with a personal weather forecast of cloudy with a good chance of thunder showers (on those around me!). I was out of sorts, displeased,and covered in a lawyer of super-gloom. Praying and talking did little to improve my outlook, and I was resigned to a day of self-imposed funk. Then rescue came through the memory of a song, written years ago by one of our first sisters. Based on the scripture Revelation 1:9, the words are:                      
                               I was in the spirit on the Lord’s Day
                                     Praying to my God and King
                               I was in the spirit on the Lord’s day
                                     Asking would He hear my cry?

                               Then I saw the sky was aflame
                               And I heard Him call my name.
                                 Fear not! For I am the same
                                 Today, tomorrow, and forever.

Every day is the Lord’s day, waiting for me to walk without fear and to love as I am loved.

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.
