St. Margaret of Cortona
Isaiah tells us today that God's word is not empty, but achieves what it was sent to do, always. Wow. Regardless of whether you have five minute or fifty minutes to spend reading the word today, it will accomplish in you what God intended.
One more thing: Do your kids ever come to you to find out the best way to approach their dad about something? (or maybe visa-versa?) By knowing their dad so intimately, you might know the best way to say something to really get his attention. Christ does the same for us by giving us the Lord's Prayer. Try saying this prayer slowly and intentionally with your family today.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, let my heart be a fertile ground where your word can blossom and grow. St. Margaret, pray for me. Amen.
