Today's Thought

" A foolish child wails and stamps his feet when his loving mother puts a needle to his finger to get a splinter out. A sensible child, on the other hand, perhaps with his eyes full of tears----for the flesh is weak----looks gratefully at his good mother who is making him suffer a little in order to avoid much greater harm. Jesus, may I be a sensible child." ( St. Josemaria Escriva)
Lord today I pray that we live as children before You. May we approach You with the childlike simplicity that You have called us to. Let us let go of all fear, anxiety, and worry that may often distract us from living the way You desire us too. Give us the wisdom and patience we need in order to be sensible children. May we look upon all of our woes as pathways to peace and serenity. Lord give us the awareness and sensibility to see beyond where we are. Help us recognize that we rest within the most loving and protective arms. In all of our days may we turn to You and feel the warmth of your parental love. (C.C.)
