Time PassingSeveral of the bloggers in the RevGalBlogPals community have been reflecting on the passage of time, and the way we mark it with anniversaries and commemorations of special days. Here’s a sampling.

In Everyday Thinking, Maria Tafoya thinks about the meaning of the pearls her father had given her mother as a 25th anniversary gift.

Nancy Wallace, who blogs at Seeker, is thinking about an often forgotten day in the church year: Candlemas, or the Presentation of Our Lord.

Stop in at Tea and Theology to wish SusannahDB a happy birthday and share in her prayer of thanksgiving.

Rosalind Hughes thinks about the passage of time on that first day, when God separated light from darkness for the first time. Find her reflection in Over the Water.

Blogging at Consider the Lilies, Kimberly recalls the day, seven years ago, when she took her final vows in the Society of the Sacred Heart.

Sometimes anniversaries come in smaller increments. In her blog, Beth Scibienski marks four weeks in a new home and considers that anniversary in light of a larger journey of grief.

Cynthia Hallas notes the 17th anniversary of her ordination in her blog Fourth Wall. She is thinking about the people and events that mark that passage of time.

These are just a few of over a hundred new blog posts by RevGals and Pals this week.
