Food for the Journey
As I sit here in the silence of my room, I wonder what I can say that hasn't already been said. What a gift, what a blessing this year has been! How much God loves me! I have resisted where once I was afraid to trod, and I have received graces upon grace to embrace that which I have yet to see.
My congregation has supported me through prayer, visits and a variety of communication means. My novitiate community has stood by me when I thought I could go no further. My family and friends helped make more firm the foundation on which I stood before I entered our novitiate. And this year, I have been ever more blessed to see the gift of our larger Dominican family. With all the food I have received for my journey, it is with a grateful heart and a more peaceful spirit, that I say "yes" to God, trusting I will continue to receive all I need, when I need it, for the journey I feel invited to follow.
May God bless you for your guidance, support, and belief in our Novitiate.
