Well Mompriest at Seekingauthenticvoice checked in to see how I was doing. I'm sure no one is reading this since it's been 9 months since my last blog post! Mompriest, I'll just write this to you since you were kind enough to think of me after all this time! So kind of you. I hope you are well. I'll have to catch up on your blog to find out!
I am very well. Much change. After my official entering of the diocesan process last year, it became clear to me (finally) that it just wasn't the time to be pursuing ordination, let alone grad school. But I needed to come to that decision, to that clarity, on my own terms. So I sat with that realization for a while, letting it just be, before I officially pulled out of the process. It felt right. I felt the pull of my young family too strongly. I didn't want to miss all those moments and I didn't want to put more strain on the family and my marriage. So after all that, I became pregnant with our third child! How's that for a change? I'm due in January with another girl.
And so I navigate these changes...often wonder if I did the right thing, but all I can do is trust and move forward and breathe. I truly feel surrounded by the feminine divine as of late, and that is wonderful.
I trust God will make it clear to me when and if I should re-enter the process.
Thanks so much for thinking of me...
