Love at First Sight
Saturday was my first meeting with the Secular Carmelites. This was the first time that I had ever been to a monastery and seen cloistered nuns. I felt like I was on the wrong side of the bars and should have been on the cloistered side, but at this point in life it's not an option. Everyone in the secular group was so filled with the same love that I have for Jesus. It was sad when the three hours was over and I had to leave. I would have stayed all weekend if I could have. The wait until August to begin my Aspirancy seems like an eternity away. Until then I will continue on with my own personal journey toward loving God to the best of my ability.
