A call which confounds the wise.d8ba462dab54daa36fee6aeed6b46883

A call which confounds the mentality of Western Society.

I too was surprised to discover

life and joy in the ordinary.

Years ago, a mother to four little onesI was frantic..

I was worried, actually frantic.

Was I pregnant

 

yet again?

 

 

Suddenly the divine pierced through my cloud of  conflicting emotions,

As a mystical blanket of peace

wrapped around me.

Infused Joy,

A burst of inner Light,

I was beaming, stifling laughter

Then

I heard words within,

In my heart-

Mothering-

“This is you call.

This is your vocation.

This is you witness to the world.”

Confusion. I was incredulous and stuttered,

“People don’t understand,

They think we are irresponsible

I look foolish.”

A whispered answer,

“You will be a witness to

Life and Joy. 

and I will be with you.”

That was it for me,cba1bf1485b7904f31f024eca9a307e5

I said,

“Yes”

To Life

And

Discovered

Inexplicable Joy.

linking with

theology is a verb
