We started this first winter in our new monastery with a record breaking windstorm in December. In all we lost about 10 trees that came down. This very large tree came down blocking the drive, but missing our peace garden bench and sculpture. It fell in the perfect place, away from our building. There was a lot more damage at the back, and the neighbors have been wonderful about helping cut up the trees and cleanup. We are getting to know all the neighbors around us in a whole new way and are so grateful for their goodness and generosity. God’s continuing providence and care for us has been so clearly manifest in so many ways throughout this whole relocation experience. May you too recognize God’s loving care in the details of your everyday lives.
