FERVERINO by Sr. Judy

Posted by admin On September - 6 - 2011

The sounds of the evening and the lingering fog in the morning, these are the mountains way of welcoming the next cycle of our lives. The black-eyed susans in the kitchen garden and the raspberries lovingly picked fill our eyes with beauty.

The long hot summer seems to be giving way and we drink in the coolness of the evening and watch the progress of Lady spider’s web, laced with dew in the morning. Where have the days gone? Retreat and community days atSharon’s brought both closure to one year and planning for the next. The next several months  will be busy ones for the community. An Enneagram workshop, Directional and Goal Setting meetings, Discernment and election of Prioress will see us looking at our past, present and future.

God has blessed us in so many ways. Volunteers, guests, Oblates have showered us with their presence, gifts and hard work. We celebrated the First Monastic Profession of Sr. Kathy DiVaio, have another scheduled in October for Sr. Kathy Curtis, and Laurie Sandblom has joined us as an Associate, beginning her process of discernment.

Last night we sat in the living room and listened to Daniele, our volunteer fromTennesseeplaying Handel arias on her flute. What could be sweeter? Thank you God for all of life and beauty that surrounds us.    Sr. Judy
