Worth a Thousand Words

 by Sr Nunother  

I was interested to learn that the now popular phrase “aha moment” has both a dictionary definition and a scientific explanation.  Defined as a moment of clarity in which one gains wisdom, it’s scientifically marked by a sudden burst of high-frequency brain waves. This past week a photographer friend sent pictures of a rainbow over Cape Cod Bay. They were taken on a dark, stormy November day that offered little personal solace. Without fanfare or words, they became my Advent “aha moment.” Into my darkness and need, Jesus quietly does the unexpected. He comes with a promise of love, hope, and forgiveness.

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.
