I love being here.
Giving of myself, my time and my emotions.
Looking for it attentively. Looking closely. Looking deeply.
I am creating a beautiful garden today with two of my classes here at St Dominic’s Catholic College
I have learned to live in hope that my life is in God’s hands and that if I allow Him to let something beautiful unfold for me it is far better than to cling on in desperation.
My husband and his presence in my life daily. I love him so much and I pray that I will appreciate his love and care every day more and more.
Love, caring and compassion from my beloved husband and friendship from my beloved friends.
Practice the presence of God and practice seeing God in all things and in all people.
That God has placed me in this classroom number seven and kept his hand over me all these years. Secondly, that God has kept HIS hand over me all these years through all the storms and tribulations bring a great sense of gratitude to my heart and lastly that I am able to pray an live my Holy Catholic Faith in this place is a joy!
Oh! every time I am able to walk I feel grateful. Walking without pain makes me so happy. That I can see, that I can hear, that I can participate in a conversation, can laugh, can feel my husband’s arms around me and my heart beating is just pure golden joy!
Dorothy my colleague.. Far above what I expected. In fasting and with prayer she changed around our Department.
In front of the great waterfalls of the world, the majestic Kauri trees, the roar of a lion and the trumpet of an elephant.
Waking up with my husband and the early morning rituals together, coming to school early and the silence of my classroom, morning tea with my friends and especially my friend June. I love going to Mass at lunchtime and then curling up behind my husband again at night. God is good … all the time … all the time.
In the environment. I can be a voice for the earth to speak up against litter, to promote healthy environmental habits free of plastics. To protect habitat and species. To speak up about the slaughter of white and black rhinos for the sake of rhino horn sold in the East as an aphrodisiac.
Talking, listening attention without judgment, making an effort to reach out, including the person in my prayers.
Moments with my husband, with my beloved granddaughter, with my family, with my friends, in nature, at Paxton and early mornings alone in my classroom.
Any animal who kills its own young is seen as barbaric and yet we do that to thousands of unborn children. what must be said of us. The life is in the blood and the blood calls to God that is on high says a verse in the Bible. Could the violence in the world be directly related to this barbaric act?
With kindness, listening and with compassion and empathy.
The long and painful story with my family and my sisters. So painful and so long. I am gladly giving that up and releasing it to the wind to take it far away from me.
Forgetting everything that has happened in the past. All the hurt, everything that was said and done. Turning over the page to have a brand new blank page to write a new story on. A different story. Amen.
To be careful with my words. To be careful with my thoughts. to walk in non-violence and peace.
