Things on my mind...

Hello, everyone!

So, there are some things I've been thinking about:

1.  The world can be very confusing to me, especially when I'm in transition.  That's one of the reasons my posts here have been few and far between lately--and by "lately" I mean for the past two years!  The noviceship was a great journey, but it was just that--a journey that kept me moving, and one that kept me self-reflective.  Most of that self-reflection is way too private to share on a blog!!  So, I'll keep posting what I can, while keeping some of this stuff to myself and my close friends.

But let me say that transitions are hard.  So hard.  Moving is hard.  Starting a new job and a new life in a new city (albeit one I've lived in before) is hard.  But at the same time, it's good.  Which leads to the next point........

2.  If there's one thing I've learned in the last two years, it's that sometimes the best things are the hardest.  From our challenging moments, we grow infinitely more than when we are comfortable.

3.  I am learning to trust, most especially, to trust in God's fidelity.  There is a line in our vow formula that goes, "trusting in the fidelity of God and the love of my sisters..."  Think about that for a minute.  It's not about MY faithfulness, but about GOD's fidelity!  God's fidelity can never fail, never.  And yet, I forget, and I get bogged down in my own worries and sorrows.  So, Remember That God Is Always Faithful!

That's all for today.  Thanks for reading!
