In the beginning

Category: Ruth's Blog Published: Thursday, 24 March 2011 Written by raheyn

For thirty-three years I thought my life was all set. I was a member of a religious community (nun) and was pretty secure... I had a good paying job, insurance, didn't have to pay taxes, I even knew where I would be buried when that day came. I knew I would always be taken care of, because I was a member of a wonderful group of religious women, whom I loved (and continue to love today!)

 

Then, things started to change... I wasn't happy....it had nothing to do with them, but everything to do with me.... I started to do things that were very unhealthy and "dangerous". It was clearly a time for change. After a lot of thought, and prayer and some time in rehab and therapy, I asked for dispensation from my religious vows. I knew I could no longer live that type of life.

But, now what? My background was in "religious studies", my sister pointed out that was not too "marketable" outside the church community that I had known. But, I had to take a "leap of faith" and pray that I would "land on my feet". So, pretty much the bottom fell out of the secure life I had known. I had no job, no insurance, and no "marketable" talents.....Or, did I?
