A Look Inside My Search

In a search for answers to the woes in my life, I found God. The truth that lies in knowing God for myself, placed me on a quest for peace. While on this journey, I have discovered that there are others seeking this truth also and that I can help. I have a Doctor of Ministry degree from Catholic Theological Union, not to rise above anyone, but to better serve everyone. I am on a journey towards peace, speaking truth that opens people up to God.

Prayers for timone #8

from J. Reid
"Dear timone, I ask God for your blessings as you journey on to a new and exciting time in your life. I ask God that His presence always be felt and appreciated as you touch those that come into your life. Peace!"

God is so amazing!!! that even as we age, the journey can still be exciting and things can be new. I remember thinking, as a young girl, that when I made it into my 50s I had surely better have done all I wanted by then otherwise I'd be too old to do it. Now?? Well now that I'm in my 50s what is old? LOL!!

God is so amazing. This leg of the journey is awesome!! Well so were several of the previous legs. But I digress. This let of the journey is awesome!! God opened a door that I never saw myself entering. She clearly spoke words of encouragement and offered hospitality.

May we not limit God with our own imaginings.
May we open our hearts to God's workings.
May we walk boldly into the possibilities.
May we appreciate one another by saying so.
            may we know PEACE.

The Applause of Leaves

I am currently at St. John's School of Theology and Seminary in Collegeville MN waiting for the start of the Co-Workers Retreat: Imaging the Ministry to start. Since I had about 3 hours, I decided to walk down to the lake. I left my phone in my room charging. I didn't take anything with me.

While sitting on a tree stump watching families play in the water, I became drowsy. I closed my eyes and allowed God total access to me. That's when I heard it: the applause of leaves. It was a beautiful sound. One I had not heard before. I sat so still, not wanting to interrupt and then it happened: total peace within. Once I acknowledged the peace, the sound was gone.
And on I sat,
marveling at the works of God,
praising God.

Below is the lake from my guest room window. Because I didn't take my phone with me, you don't get a view from outside.
