What lessons have I learned? How has the year changed me interiorly? May I never forget and always be grateful that I live in a country which allows me options regarding where I live; and I realize how God has provided me the means to make such a choice. God has deepened in me a profound sense of how I am loved and cared for as God's unique creation.
It's that time of year again: the beginning, the time for taking stock and making resolutions. What great things has God done in me and what would God like to do for and in me this coming year?
A simple act by a Sister of St. Joseph spoke volumes about how to practice the love of God in everyone and anyone without analysis, hesitation or debate regarding the recipient's deservedness to receive that love.
One of the greatest blessings of my life and professional career was my education and certification as a Myers-Briggs Master Practitioner. Through understanding and use of the Myers-Briggs, I felt God placed me in a position to grow in self-knowledge while working to develop healthy, constructive relationships in so many corporate applications.
