In our EFM class we recently discussed images that describe our spirituality.
I think of my spirituality as an early pregnancy. The doctor may have said that there is a child. Now the mother begins to watch for signs. My spirituality is within me. It colours my thoughts and my actions and my feelings. I am watching for signs. I feel an expectancy. On occasion I feel a connection, a gentle direction; it reminds me of the quickening time, when a mother begins to feel a flutter of movement (about 4-5 months). She truly knows the child is there, is alive. For me, when I feel that urgency, I become even more attentive to the Holy Spirit, and more involved in seeking guidance. I rest, knowing that while I feel that sense of movement, I am safe and I feel cared for in His arms.
