St. Veronica Guiliani
"Give me back the joy of your salvation, and a willing spirit sustain in me." When was the last time you felt real joy? I think moms get so busy with meeting everyone's needs the joy gets sucked right out of them! I know there are times when I don't feel joyful. It's at those times that remembering the source of true joy, my salvation through Jesus Christ, refreshes me.
One more thing: What are the wolves in your life that take the joy out of you? Errands, car pool, cooking and cleaning, diapers, curfew, unemployment, a move, or even a play-group of grousing moms. No matter what is going on in the world around you, one thing remains constant: Christ's love for you. He gave up his life for you and he awaits you with open arms in his heavenly kingdom. So, flash those pearly whites for Christ!
Prayer: Dear Jesus, give me back the joy of salvation and a willing spirit sustain in me. Let my children see the joy of salvation shine through me. In your precious name I pray. Amen. St. Veronica Guiliani, pray for me.
