This post is only to announce that I will be closing down this blogging business. After much prayer, I have realized that I really do not have the time to keep on writing. It is true that I have deleted rude comments lately....but, that is not why I am ending it, it's more due to the fact that time to make vows is approaching and I have to get busier with the things of God (though the blogosphere would be a much better place if people were more respectful.) This will go on for a week and then I'm deleting it.
It has been a pleasure to read your comments and to share life with you. Thank you for reading and praying with us, the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament.

I wish you all a wonderful year. May God shower his blessing upon all.

Praised be the Incarnate Word!

Sr. Helga....I am sorry to hear you are leaving the blog world. I valued your reflections. I didn't have a chance to post but I used your reflection of St. Joseph on my day of reflection.

Many blessings on your way. Perhaps we'll get to meet at some intercommunity event!!

Really sorry you quit.
Welcome to the real world. It is a lot less 'respectful' than the Blogoshpere.
Hope you make it.

Sr. Betsy, thanks for your comments. i appreciated each one of them. And who knows? Maybe we will meet some day.

God bless you Irish.

I will miss reading your blog, but I can understand. I hope that we can continue to keep in touch. When are your vows?

Many prayers as you continue your journey...

Helga said...

If everything goes well, I'll probably be making vows sometime in August. We'll keep on praying for each other. And....I'll still visit your blog from time to time :)

You will be missed, Sister Helga. My prayers are with you as you continue this wonderful adventure of religious life. Please keep in touch and visit when you can. Sister Julie

Helga said...

I will visit you Sr. Julie, your blog is a favortie of mine.

Oblatofranciscano: ¡Ánimo y adelante siempre! Gracias por leer y compartir conmigo este amor por Dios y el camino hacia El.

He pensado y pensado. Empezé este blog porque de alguna manera siento que muchos hispanos no pensamos en la V.R. porque quizás no hay suficientes de nosotros adentro. Yo quise hacer pública la invitación de Dios y decirle a otros: ¡Ánimo, no tengas miedo!¡Esta vida vale la pena!

Gracias por reafirmar mi hispanidad y el orgullo que siento de ser parte de dos hermosas culturas.

Sigue visitando, quizás me sacuda el virus que ha afectado a este blog

Praised be the Incarnate Word!

You guessed right! I'm from Brownsville/Matamoros...I would love to hear more about your experiences in formation...Wow! both of us will be making vows about the same time, mine will be in August, I suppose, not quite sure.

Guessed what? I found out how to moderate comments, so, this may not be the end of the blog, but I won't be posting as much anyway.

Do visit! It feels great to have people who share a love for God
