“Let nothing trouble you, let nothing frighten you.
All things are passing; God never changes.
Patience obtains all things.
He who possesses God lacks nothing:
God alone suffices.” St. Theresa of Avila
Today has been a very difficult day for me mentally. Sometimes, I awaken feeling depressed and vulnerable and just can’t seem to shake it. Regretfully, Sunday has been one of those days for me. I went to the chapel for about an hour and a half this afternoon. Then I went to the garden center and just wandered around aimlessly surrounded by flowers – some of my favorite things on the planet – still in a funk. The above prayer is from one of my friends in heaven, St. Theresa of Avila. My youngest son was born on October 15, her feast day. Ironically, (or providentially) she is patron saint of headache sufferers. I suffer from migraines often – had one yesterday as a matter of fact! I ask her for prayers often, as I’m doing again today. I cling to the beautiful words above, and trust that tomorrow will be better!
