Dancing in the cloister…

The young priest and the nuns of the convent watched as the postulants walked through the cloister to the garden for a time of prayer.  As they went into the garden to take their places they walked quietly with hands folded and eyes looking down.  Except for one who went in dancing with hands open, smiling and looking all around her with bright eyes.  The priest looked at Mother Superior with a scowl and asked, “Does she not know the proper way to enter the garden for prayer?”  The wise old nun smiled and said, “Oh, yes, she does Father but she cannot contain her joy when she is to meet with her Lord.”

No fret holiday…


I don’t fret often but when I do it is a mega-fret. What a waste of time and energy; it does nothing to change anything, makes me cranky, and ruins my day. This time of year can be a challenge to stay fret-free but I am determined to have a fret-less holiday season. It may take a lot of willpower, ignoring the over the top holiday hype, and the occasional forced smile but I’m going to do it! I am also going to stock up on chocolate…and wine. 😉
