What has not changed - except to deepen - has been the quality of the love of my sisters, expressed in so many ways, small and large, in good times and bad. And God, of course, has been steadfast: unstinting and unchanging in his infinite love; though what has altered over the years is how I have grown in my understanding of it, and my mission to make that love known.
What brought me here? What caused me to remain? So much of call and response is mystery. But today, in my Twitter feed, I saw a tweet from Pope Francis, a little anniversary gift which somehow supplied at least part of the answer...
God walks along the dusty paths of our lives and responds to our longing for love and happiness by calling us to joy.
And that, my friends, captures much of how it has been and continues to be, summed up in less than 140 characters.
