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)
Persimmons. I had picked them from the tree at the other property just last Saturday. I've been seeing them change to a brighter orange as they sit on the counter. Now they seem ripe already. I had one. It wasn't bad. Probably one more day of ripening would be safe.

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!
