Love, the driving force: a journey of discernment

Chronicling my formation with the Loretto Sisters (IBVM)

Farewell to the Philippines

2 Comments

In two short sleeps and one very loooooong flight I will be back at home again in Toronto. My year in the Philippines is quickly coming to an end.

What a year it has been.

I could go back through this blog in the same way that I recently went through my journals to reflect on the year that has passed and I could come up with a greatest hits list and sum it all up. So much has happened this year – so many gifts, blessings, challenges, struggles, joys, and sorrows. Transformation. It’s incredible the way that God has been at work. But somehow, it doesn’t seem necessary to go through it all right now.

It has been a tremendous year.

Perhaps I will leave it at that.

For now.

But first, a thank you, a BIG thank you, to the Philippines – to all of the people I have met and loved and who have loved me – thank you for letting me be a part of your life this year and for making a home in my heart. I will carry you with me the rest of my life.

  2. Looking forward to seeing you in Toronto in 2017. Was great to meet you and Manila. Praying for you as you persevere in love, faith and hope the long lonely. It is even longer than the many flights in your life. But it will be guaranteed grace filled. May joy be your life long consolation. Love Brenda
