Since beginning this blog in May 2007 I don't know that I've missed more than perhaps one or two Monday and Thursday entries. But that is coming to end with this post. After 10 years of 24/7-365 days of ministry to our wonderful community, Anne and I are taking an extended break to unwind, relax and become "our everyday selves" again. The ones without the constant responsibilities, decision-making, worry and endless availability. 90% of which was really no problem, it's just the everyday life with 85-100 other women (and many more in the friends and family category!) with whom we are on our monastic journey. But these "down" weeks have to include my taking a break from writing LTSGW.

I know that your life won't be the same without it!!!!! So many of you, faithful beyond my imaginings, have expressed to me such kind remarks about the little daily "stuff" that is shared here. Thank're very nice. I'll be back Sunday night October 4th, Feast of St. Francis. Until then, try some of our other blogs that perhaps you haven't followed so much. They are very good at sharing a tiny glimpse into our life, also. Blessings to you and yours...stay healthy and come see us as soon as we get this virus under some sort of control. We miss seeing you very much.


  1. You both so deserve a break. Your ministry means so much to me. Blessings to both of you. I miss you. I know just a little about how time-consuming this work is. I’ve done Sunday worship and Wednesday Compline virtually now for 22 consecutive weeks. Take care. Peace, Judith Davis

  2. Thank you are sharing your gift of writing and reflection with us. Enjoy your time away!
    Peace, Beth Jordan

  3. Enjoy your rest, you both really deserve it. You were always there for your community family and for the family members of the sisters.
    Rest, relax and enjoy your down time you have done a terrific job.
    Stay safe and healthy. Hugs and peace,
