To act on the stirrings of soul that I am becoming more and more aware ...http://traininghappyhearts.blogspot.com/2016/01/a-happy-new-year-enjoying-this-day-that.html

Is There Room in My Heart? THE CLOISTERED HEART - December 16, 2015 ... who so tenderly prepared a place for Jesus, to help prepare my heart to be a fitting refuge for my Lord.

Reopening the Advent Window THE CLOISTERED HEART - December 2, 2015 ... shoppers lined up for black Friday and the queues awaiting after-Christmas sales, there is still a window of opportunity. A time when someone rushing through a store might catch the strains of an old familiar carol, one she's heard every Christmas since childhood. Yet this time, the words sound different.

Two Years Later, and Still I Need Help THE CLOISTERED HEART - October 28, 2015 ... Revisiting Wednesday . I needed to be reminded of this today.... I have felt, at times, as if I were running from prayer. Not a pleasant thought at all. However, one of you said something that opened a floodgate. Because of this, I see myself sitting in my 'prayer chair,' Bible or Breviary in hand, settling in to pray. In come the distractions... as they always do.
