File Under: When I Am Weary of the Wee Ones

When the days get long and tiresome, when the food explosion from lunch necessitates an industrial strength hose-down of the entire dining room, remember this...

When you tell your child a story, when you play a game with your little son, you tell a story, you play a game with the Christ Child...A woman too weary for articulate prayer will find that for her the best of all prayer is the unspoken act of faith in Christ in her children. When she knows that she is setting the table and baking the cake for the Christ Child, her soul will be at rest.

I too thought that today's meditation really hit home. I can't say that today has been the best day, but I can say that I've been more peaceful about it thanks to this insight and God's grace. Thanks for sharing!

PS - Glad you had fun on your trip...it is a beautiful place!
