Today's Horoscope

I'm not really a believer in horoscopes, but sometimes you read your horoscope and it just fits. Like today's:
Leo: Where you are is the perfect place for you - now.
I've got a little over a month left of my spring ministry experience in Jersey City. I can't believe how quickly the time has gone! I've really enjoyed my community living experience - getting to know the Sisters I'm living with and the Sisters next door. It's been so much more fun than I ever could have anticipated! They are really great women. My ministries have been enlightening and challenging, for both my head and my heart. Great experiences.

So yes, where I am is the perfect place for me - now. It's good to feel that, because it helps me to be more present to the experience rather than living in/obsessing about the future. To not miss out on the here and now. The future will come. I'll head back to the Novitiate in the middle of May. This summer is full with more novitiate house stuff (classes/workshops). Preparing for vows. We have our General Chapter this summer. Then retreat. Then before I know it, it will be time to move back to the Pacific Northwest and begin full time ministry. There are lots of unknowns, things to be decided and figured out, but for now, it's good to know and feel that where I am is the perfect place for me - now.

Excellent! I'm glad that you are living in the here-and-now...and also thankful for the reminder that I might consider doing the same thing.

Blessings to you!
