“God gets you where God wants you to be.” I have made that statement many times in my life. I say it partially to convince myself because where God wants me is not always where I want to be.

A vocation is a gift of God, a gift for one’s journey of life and a gift for others. As a young teenage girl, I was attracted to my particular community by how the Sisters gave witness. They were joyful, prayerful, relational women, clearly at ease with people.

A wise Sister once advised me: “Tonette, live your life and live it to its fullest potential. If God is calling you to a religious vocation, you will not be able to run from it. Enjoy yourself, and let God do the controlling.”
