Spring break was fabulous. I spent a few days with my family shoveling mulch, playing frisbee golf and lots of board games. At about 8:00 we decided maybe we ought to stop and make something for dinner. I found out the new baby we are expecting will be a boy. Between that and the two weddings being planned for this coming summer, there is lots happening.
Then time with community. We celebrated St. Joseph's Day and Jubilee in high style with Eucharist, lunch, dinner, photos, and lots of hugs and laughter. It was the first time that I had the opportunity to renew my vows with my community. I renew them every morning, but there is something special about saying it with the group of women with whom I have committed my life.
Now, back to school. We are preparing for a month of testing at school. Not my favorite way to spend the day usually, but we'll find a way to make it enjoyable nonetheless. Thankfully the weather has been wonderful for running, so the afternoons end on a high note no matter how monotonous the days get.
Lent continues with an awareness of the theme of healing in the gospels. So I ask what it is that needs healing in my life and leave myself open to those things yet to be revealed. God, as always, is great, and I am grateful for so much in my life.
