My Dear Beloved,

O, how I love you!

I am grieved when you cannot see me as you walk the treacherous path of fear – deceitfulness, misplaced trust, and dishonesty. But I cannot abandon you, nor forget my promises to you. I give you a sign of hope, a son, to remind you I am with you when you are able to hear me.

I see your struggle discerning to do the right thing in a difficult situation. But oh, how I take delight when I see you receive the grace I give you and say yes to my guidance even though you do not understand the situation at hand. Trust me, I am doing great things. Peace of heart and mind will be yours.

I rejoice when you surrender yourself and accept my gift of obedience of faith and desire to live and share it with others and all creation. You get it! Love is the basis for obedience and faith. Obedience and faith need each other to grow. O, what joy we share together!

Do not fear. Receive and use the grace I gift to you. Surrender to my love that holds hands with hope, peace and joy each day. Look to Jesus whose life is one great obedience of faith. Let Holy Spirit help you.

Receive my blessings. Ascend my hill,
I am

Let us simply hold out our arms, in trust, and say yes.

Sr. Brenda Jenner, SSJD
