Catholic woman discerning a religious vocation One thing I ask of the LORD; this I seek: To dwell in the LORD'S house all the days of my life, To gaze on the LORD'S beauty, to visit his temple. (Ps 27:4)
I just bought a Streamlight KeyMate flashlight as a gift for a friend; birthday party this weekend. I hope it works well. I got it at a "cop store" -- it actually says that on their window. Since it didn't cost all that much, I might go back and get two more. One for myself and the other for Gumby.
I do have a re-chargeable pocket LED light, but it requires that you hold down the button for it to light. That means that you only have one hand left to do whatever it is you need to do. Also, I get tired of holding it down after a while.
If you are looking for a "happenin" blog, this ain't it.
I am in my 40's. I was baptized into the Catholic faith on Easter of 2001. I started discerning a religious vocation in 2004. In early 2006 I met the Dominicans. My initial reaction was "no way" and it was no secret. But surprise! I was captivated.
However, due to a set of circumstances, I am unable to pursue life as a religious, and I am getting too old to think that it can happen later through the years. Yes, I have given up on the idea. Life goes on. No telling what the future brings!
