Motto: Into your hands, O Lord

I’ve spent most of my days as a Sister of Mercy teaching primary grades. My greatest joy was teaching children who had difficulty learning. One of those children was a little boy who had to have the window shade adjusted so that he could see more clearly. He then responded, “Thank you, Sister Nancy, for moving the sun for me.” I wonder how many times I had to “move the sun” so my students could see and learn better. Many times, I’m sure. I see this as a preparation for the “sun being moved” for me as I age.
