Holy Leisure to the max...

Four of the wonderful women in discernment with our community enjoyed an outing to Kings Dominion last week. It was my very first visit to the amusement park and I’m happy to say I survived!

We had the whole park to ourselves because of the rain. No waiting on long lines, no unbearable heat. I watched Jennifer and Karen being turned upside down on the “DOMINATOR” all the while praying out loud for the future of our community. I took photos and screamed at the same time – a unique talent in community, I think.

Urszula and Pat cleaned up in the arcade – over 400 tickets in an hour! Skeeball, air hockey and a few rounds of “Deal or No Deal” made the rainy day quite profitable.

I took one ride on a real coaster – the “Grizzly”. It was an old-fashioned, wooden coaster that made horrible clacking noises and shook me lose from most of my bones. (Again, more spontaneous prayer aloud as my two companions giggled.) All in all is was great fun. We’ve decided to make this an annual event for women in discernment and in initial formation. Next year, NO “Grizzly”!

Blessings and love to you all…
