My sweet Abbess Petunia needs to have another surgery today. Back in November she had a tumor removed that was cancerous but tested as low-grade and they thought it had all been removed. We discovered another small lump near the same spot last week and so they are going back in to remove it.
I have been relishing the wisdom found in this week’s Poetry Party. Be sure to go take a peek and share your own poem about the Lenten journey, where an awareness of our mortality and death bring us closer to the beauty of life.
I’m surrounding you and Petunia with prayers to St. Francis, with healing love and light.
May you lean into the One whose frame longs to receive your weight. I join my prayers to yours and the others for Petunia and your family. May the hours you share together in recovery bestow their gift of peace.
