All That Is Hidden - Bernadette Farrell (by AllThatIsHidden)

All that is hidden will be made clear….  Closing my eyes, I can hear God singing this to me.  It’s such a reassuring, strong song.  When listening to this song, I am rejuvinated and uplifted.  Enjoy!

I am the Voice…..

The Voice of God, calling us to Follow Her…  Through out the past, present and future.  The Voice through tears and laughter.  The Voice that strengthens us to walk the walk and talk the talk.

How do we answer the Voice of God in our lives….

I know, YES!

Your Dream Job….
A good question to ask yourself while you are discerning is; What would your dream job be?  How do you feel God is leading you to act out your ministry?  What passions and talents have God given to you? 
I’ve asked myself what a dream job would look like to me…  I found this great photo in a book I’m reading called, “Building Sisterhood”.  It shows three sisters in the midst of ministry.  They look like they are bringing meals to the sick and or infirm people they are serving.  “Building Sisterhood”, is a feminist history of The Sister’s Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary from Monroe, MI. 
The first moment I looked at the photo - I smiled and said, “This is my dream job…”. I could so, see myself serving these meals to the elderly and or sick.  And, there is a photo of IHM’s living out my dream job!  Nice!
I feel my calling is to work with geriatrics - serving the elderly and or the sick has always been my passion. 
Another question that is so important to ponder on is weather the charism of the community is in sink with your charism and spirit.  In looking at this picture, I can see that the care of the elderly and or the sick was a very central to the charism of the IHM sisters.  In my heart - I felt the community might be able to use my talents and passions to care for the sick. 
How exciting!
The song that filled my heart when I started writing this was “The Basin and the Towel” (Micheal Card).  This beautiful song explains so many of the reasons why I feel called to the religious life. And, why I feel so called to my “dream job”.
When I see the sisters serving the other’s - I think of the basin and towel ministry.  My hope is that someday, I’ll be in a similar photo to this one. The times will be different, the people different - and I wont be in a habit - but the basin and the towel ministry will still be alive!  Ya :)

My name is Bree - and my blog is about the journey I am on…  Come join me on my journey to follow God, where ever She leads….

"The Woman in the Window"
How often do we see through windows - and never see our reflections?  Or look right past the reflection? Or see the reflection, and harshly put it down?  This photo I took really posed these questions to me.  And a few other questions also…
So often I look at my reflection and see all of the flaws and problems with myself.  Looking at this photo - and meditating on it, I can see my beauty and strength.  I should say, I choose to see the beauty and strength.
This picture was taken my first evening in Monroe, MI.  This summer, I had the pleasure of attending A Nuns Life gathering called Summit.  While at Summit, I decided to begin dicernment with The Sisters, Servant of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Monroe, or more commonly known as the “Monroe IHM’s”. 
Norman Towers is the name of the building in the photo.  Norman Towers was formerly a boys school run by the IHM’s.  NT looks very much like the IHM Motherhouse that sits next door….
Seeing my photo appear over the photo of NT - really hit my heart and soul.  Seeing my face and the strong, beautiful view of the building it overlayed gave me a very peaceful feeling….  A feeling like I belonged there…  Like my dear God was showing me where I belonged…
Take time to admire your woman (or man) in the window…  Look at the master piece that God made called you!  Think of where your reflection has been, where it is now and where God is calling it to go - so exciting!
So, maybe the woman in the window is meant to be with the IHM sisters….  So, now the adventurous journey has begun!
