One Reply to “A CALL … PART 5”

  1. Thank God Carol followed her call to religious life; and made peace with her family, Jeff and herself. God’s ways are not our ways and if things don’t work out the way we want them, it doesn’t mean God loves us less. We only need to trust in his will.
    A Call, from 1 – 5, is a must-read for all of us irrespective of our status – religion or tribe. It’s interesting, enlightening and contains lessons to learn from.
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful gift with us.
    We look forward to more of your stories.
