Women, War and Wonder


I was at an event tonight that showcased war, women and the resilience of the human spirit. Rama Mani was sharing her poetry of vignettes of women caught in conflict around the world, portraying their ability to hang on to hope. Interspersed with this were songs and drumming by various performers. This was all followed by a discussion.

I met a woman I had been in South Africa with and she said that she felt like there were so many good things happening in our city around important issues. I agreed. I am definitely busy but it all seems good.

What brings you hope in the midst of despair?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
