If you have ever prayed for patience, I'm sure you know how dangerous of a prayer it can be. The results are destined to put you in a traffic jam or run you into a difficult person. Think it is God's favorite prayer to answer... The enjoyment found giving us opportunities to grow in patience... JK. 😉

My Dearest One, You were made for such a time as this (Esther 4:14). I never makes mistakes. Instead, I saw a need and created you. I placed you here in THIS moment, this era for a purpose (1 Peter 2:9). You have a gift my child. Virtues and talents I have bestowed upon you to use for my glory (1 Peter 4:10). How will you use them?
Just recently, I stumbled across a children's story I wrote a few years ago. I think my young mind dreamed of publishing it or something haha. Alas, that didn't happen 😉 But thought I'd share it with you. Enjoy!
When this whole quarantine thing started escalating very quickly, I was getting pretty upset about it all. I tried to justify my anger by calling it righteous. Jesus got angry once in the Bible and that was righteous anger (Mark 11:15). So, I told myself that it was okay of me to be angry the sacraments are not at our disposal right now. But is it? Is that really righteous anger??
