It was this week that I realized that these women are not what I thought they would be. Many people think of sisters and nuns as stern-faced teachers with a ruler in their hands as they prayed every hour of every day without ceasing. That is just simply untrue. They are not machines that spout out what they are told, they are women who work together, laugh together, cry together, and pray together. They are sisters in everything but blood, brought together through God. And here I am, with the incredible opportunity to see who they truly are.
I know that I will learn a lot from them.
Thanks for listening,
Ephesians 1:18 - I pray that the eyes of your heart may be opened so that you can see the hope He has called you to, the riches of His inheritance to His glorious people.
