The International Online Certificate Program is reading "The Interior Castle" for this Unit and following the footsteps of Teresa of Avila as they move through the interior castle. It is a wonderful image seeing our souls as castles. God is everywhere, but there are some rooms in my castle that overwhelm me with God's Presence. I am just wandering around sometimes and exploring; at other times God leads me into the room He wants to meet me in and, unlike Teresa, I often do not see any progression but just God following my desires. This would scare me except that I know my desires come from God.
Yesterday was my niece's birthday and I ask prayers for her. She is going through a tough time and needs all the prayers possible. I also pray for her husband and her four children who range from just four to thirteen.
