Easter Vigil

We had a simple but beautiful liturgy tonight.  This was the second time I braved to sing the Exultet and it was okay.  The things one would do for love of God!  Tonight the Sisters also gave me a Best Wishes Party.  I leave tomorrow for home and then April 10th to the Motherhouse for my new assignment  Human nature is so strange.  The times of annoyances and misunderstandings even in convents are suddenly forgotten.  Everyone seems to be caught up in the spirit of Easter and the presence of the Risen Jesus is palpable.  One of the Sisters asked how I felt leaving.  Do I have mixed feelings?  I said no, I don't.  God has given me the grace to have always accepted my assignments with a light heart.  I always saw all my departures as God's call to move on. I will miss our elderly Sisters whose been the recipients of my care and time.  That was the hardest part.  But even that must go. So this Easter season is truly a new beginning for me.  But Religious life is full of adventure.  It's like what Forest Gump said : "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get."  But I think when one trusts God enough, we know what we can get: only what is best for us.
