I stopped by Elms College today - my alma mater as well as a place that I used to work. I was helping out a former co-worker with a database. I stopped at the chapel after to pray and was heading home when I encountered a Sister that I knew. She called out to me. It had been years since I had seen her. I was surprised she even remembered my name. But then she said to me, "I was in Germany recently and a woman had one of your articles about St. Therese and asked me if I knew you, and I told her that I did!"
I was so excited! I write and write and hope that my words do some good in the world, and often there is no feedback at all. It is kind of like sending my words out this great big vast hole and sometimes it seems like it doesn't matter at all. And then, someone says something like that and it is just like God saying "Keep it up!"
