Rest, my dears, in prayer…
This poem by St. Catherine of Siena reminds me of a “crutch” I was given by a friend once. The crutch is this: whenever you are feeling overwhelmed by life, stop for a moment, close your eyes, take a deep and cleansing breath and read the note that God left for you:
I want you to know that today I have everything under control. You don’t have to worry about a thing, let me handle it. Rest in my arms.
