Unveiled Face

“All of us, gazing with unveiled face on the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory…” (2 Corinthians 3:18)

_DSC0237_FotorAs encouraging as this passage is, I am afraid it doesn’t have much to do with the episode described below.  (I do hope I am cooperating with this process of transformation, though.)

One morning this past week, I got up and dressed, as usual, around the time that the sun was beginning to shed some glory on the semi-dark landscape.

Things went as usual, that is, until I came to my desk to put on my veil, wrist watch, and crucifix, which normally sit there overnight.

My watch was missing, to my dismay.

I put on a light.  While normal morning preparations don’t usually require extra electric lighting, due to light coming from my window, a search mission for this important time-telling accessory necessitated the flip of a switch that a.m.

My watch was nowhere to be seen, neither on my desk nor on the floor (even though I pulled out my chair and explored a bit on my hands and knees).

After several seconds searching, I gave up, saying a quick prayer for the discovery of this important item and heading upstairs, then out the door.

I went on with my day, first spending time in chapel and then going about my work…

As the morning progressed, I noticed from time to time, that something was not setting right with my veil.  I pulled on it a little, trying to adjust and straighten it.

You might not realize how annoying a cockeyed veil can be to one’s head!

Finally, perhaps around 10 a.m. (about five hours after first dressing), as I was walking through our main hallway at St. Anne’s, I thought, “Enough is enough!  I’ve got to get to the bottom of this veil issue!”

After a couple of seconds of feeling around my veil and head, I felt a lump.  Exploring further, I discovered that there was something hard lodged in my veil near the neck area.  My fingers soon pulled out the very watch I had looked for so desperately early that morning!  (It somehow had fallen inside my veil the evening before when I was undressing.)

Both mysteries, the missing watch and the uncomfortable veil, were solved, and I happily went on with my day.
