The Kingdom of Heaven Belongs to Such as These

Being a stay-at-home parent was, without a doubt, one of the hardest things I’ve had to do. Now during this time of quarantine, my husband still leaves the house for work everyday. I am back in this place again, with all of the isolation it brings and the feeling of wanting some breathing room. It’s as if God is telling me, “Face this.”

You Will Be Exalted

“Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, And those who humble themselves will be exalted…” I am at such a loss. I can never seem to maintain that spirit of fervor I so arrogantly boast of having. I am at a loss. And maybe that’s the point. I’ve been praying the Litany of Humility again. It’s one of my favorites, but every now and then I fall off the wagon of praying it regularly. I pray it once a week so as to be consistent, but not overwhelm myself. Humility, after all, doles out a severe blow, against ego, against false self-perception, and against the idea that we are in control.
