I know I haven't updated in the longest time but things have been happening pretty fast. The end of the semester came and I was still thinking about updating...Thanksgiving time arrived!!! We enjoyed a traditional meal, but it was very fun to make. This year I made the fruit salad...lots and lots of it. Thank you Incarnate Word for your many blessings!

In preparation for hurricane Rita, besides getting gas, shutters for windows, water, generator, etc, etc, etc. We also got to pick pears!!! It was fun although one hit my head, another my neck, another my legs, arms and the rest of my body pretty hard and I'll be bruised for the rest of the month....
Here are some pictures...Please help us pray for all those who don't have a home, for all those who have to evacuate yet again....and for all the poor and marginalized. Let's pray that Rita decreases her strenght and that God increases our faith.
¡Dios mio, en Ti confiamos!

Nada te turbe, nada te espante
todo se pasa,Dios no se muda,
la paciencia todo lo alcanza.
Quien a Dios tiene, nada le falta.
Solo Dios basta.
Teresa de Ávila
I prayed this prayer many times under this tree. The wind rocking the branches like a mother rocks a baby to sleep. My heart rejoices in those words and my soul finds confort.
I can't pray under this tree anymore, but I have the memory and the prayer with me.

This past Sunday we all went to Bluntzer ranch for the afternoon. We enjoyed each others company and the ponies!!!!
We took the two mini buses and had a blast coming back home...We sang the whole time! At the end we were confusing the languages and weren't exactly singing in tune and "harmoniously"....
That's Sister Marian saying hi to the camera and Sister Margaret Patrice behind her....and way in the back in Sister Judith Marie.

As I'm sitting here, agonizing over lesson plans I think of the poor people without jobs. I give thanks for my ministry and for God who sustains my vocation even in the midst of crisis.
A vocation is mystery and magic, cross and gift. I still don't understand why God called me, of all people....me! But I thank Him everyday (although some days I don't feel as excited about being a postulant) I ask for the gift to see clearly and to follow Him without looking back.
May God grant me the patience to become more and more like a child.
