Introduction Benedictine Sister, Author, Spiritual Guide, Seeker of Truth, Lover of the spiritual journey. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Journaling is an important spiritual practice for me. Almost (but not every) morning I sit under my sycamore tree and journal. If weather does not permit or if I am traveling I see the sycamore tree with my heart’s eye. This is the same tree that I talk about on page 133 of my book, A Tree Full of Angels. It’s the tree I once used (for a short time) as a spiritual director. It was young then. Now, like myself, it is looking toward the evening of life. It’s my inspiration tree. It holds stories and I listen. In this journaling section I hope to share selections from my daily journal. Happy Journaling to all who come to my blog for you, too, must have hearts full of things that must be held in reflection.
