Highlights of 2019 - I appreciate growing old another year
What are you looking forward to this year? I am a happy-peaceful soul; I just want to go on in life, in love and ready to say "yes" to God's Providence. I consider the death that God plans for me as my last act of penance and love and being able to finally to go home to the bosom of the Father in Jesus-Christ.
Advice for Someone Discerning– Look to God and follow His lead with total loving trust. Don’t look back or calculate your loss or cost. Nothing can compare with God. God is God and you and I are not.
Favorite Story as a Sister – I didn’t like religious life at first. I came to religious life at the request of my uncle who was a priest. My motives changed when I took final vows – now I am appreciate God’s Providence.
