St. Pacifico of San Severino
I gained an incredible peace in my vocation as a mother when I realized that there are seasons in my journey. If your season is the infant and toddler period, realize it really won't last forever. Relax and enjoy things and know that the dreams you have for yourself will come to pass when the time is right. If you are in the teen season of motherhood, know too that this is a season. While they are trying to break free from you, know that this is the last time your children may really depend on you. If you are like me and have all-season motherhood, realize that God "has made everything appropriate to its time" and you are just where he wants you to be!
One more thing: "There is an appointed time for everything."What season are you in right now? How much time do you spend wishing it away? How will you savor this season of life?
Prayer: Father in Heaven, thank you for providing me with this season in life. Help me to realize I am exactly where you want me to be right now. Help me to live in the present, radiant with peace, so that I may fully learn the lessons of this time in my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. St. Pacifico, pray for me.
