Did I offer peace today?
Did I bring a smile to someone's face?
Did I say words of healing?
Did I let go of my anger and resentment?
Did I forgive? Did I love?
These are the real questions.

- Henri Nouwen

April 23, 2015                        

April is full upon us with all the promise of spring, warmth and rebirth.  It is a time to take stock, refresh and appreciate the miracles in our lives; as Willa Cather says, "our perceptions are made finer, so that for a moment our eyes see...what there is about us always." This month, Joan shares her pictorial travelogue of the wonderment of spring as she faces the poignant questions Henri Nouwen poses to each of us.

          Here's to chasing - and finding - miracles with all of you.

Joan, Katie and Meb 

          Much of the last several months I have spent on airplanes crisscrossing the country. From CA to MA, WY to FL, CO to NY, it has been a blessing and a privilege to spend so much time with my mom, mother-in-law and an assortment of others: a veritable feast of family, restoring our souls as well as frail bodies chilled by the harsh winter. I have gotten to see Spring reappear in all of its glory and felt the grace and restoration that comes with laughter, fresh air, beautiful scenery and a renewed outlook on life.  Like most of us, I have experienced moments of frustration where my patience has worn thin, moments of anxiety about choices that are made and even moments of pain with yet another fractured bone in my foot.  The faces of spring, a generosity of spirit and finding joy in the moment is where I have found life's small, yet powerful, miracles.



          I wonder if perhaps I am finally on the road to 
understanding the notion of finding God in all things. This belief is at the root of the Ignatian spirituality I struggled with so many years ago as an undergraduate at BC. If so, Thank God, better late than never! (Joan)
