The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made. And the activity of making them changes both the maker and their destination.
–John Schaar

I have been thinking a lot about the future, our future, my future. Do you think this new appointment to Director of Vocation Ministry for the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph has anything to do with my pondering?
I love Schaar’s quote which reminds me that I am an essential player in the future. The choices I make, the attitude I bring, and the outcome is determined by numerous factors. However, I must never underestimate my role in making the future all it can be. What an awesome thought! What an awesome challenge!
St. Angela Merici’s words are most app0priate–ACT, MOVE, BELIEVE, STRIVE, HOPE, CRY OUT to God with all your heart… and you will see marvelous things, if you do all for the honor and glory of God.
With St. Angela I pray, “light up the darkness of my heart” enlighten my mind. I encourage you too to walk the path into the future with confidence and high hopes! Let me know if you discover marvelous things!
Make it a great day! Make it a great future!
