God is great all the time, all the time God is great!
Friday I found out that I am officially accepted to enter formation with the Salesian Sisters of Saint John Bosco! Let me tell you, I am so excited about this! I don’t even know really what to say next. Anything could burst out from me or maybe just a smile will shine on my face!
Weekend before Thanksgiving at NCYC 2009 I met two aspirants in the bathroom. Second half of Thanksgiving weekend I spent time with the Salesian Sisters in North Haledon. That week after my heart and soul were racing and I was so excited about my visit and how I was feeling. I talked for two hours of a two and a half hour conversation with my friend. I e-mailed Sister Colleen about how I was freaking out and talking like a crazy person. She ended up visiting that Thursday, with an application, in the little amount of time that I had to visit that day (as we were prepping for a retreat). Crazy. After a couple more visits and many many many conversations I got the application filled out and turned in the weekend of Palm Sunday, that Monday, when Sister Colleen came down to visit my family (who were visiting me) and me. Then this Friday I found out I can enter near the end of August. It is surely one of the most awesome things in my life!
How long have I know who the Salesian Sisters are before I get accepted? 6 Months!
How long will I have known about the Salesians before I show up to enter? 8 Months!
Does God do things how He wants to do them? That is for sure!
I don’t know what God is going to continue to do with me, but I am very excited about this journey I am about to embark on. Religious life is a beautiful thing and it has always intrigued me. Now I get a chance to be a part of that life as I make my way through formation. Please pray for me in this journey as I continue to share it with all of you!
