The Second Sunday of Advent Peace
Living in the United States after 9/11 and being a military wife. I lived the first (10) years of my marriage with looming thoughts of war daily. My husband and I celebrated many Christmas apart.
When I leave my home, I come across much negative draining energy. I find myself longing to seek refuge and the only place I find peace is at home. Yes, it’s noisy and I must go into the tub to pray the rosary at times, but home is peace. It is where I know I can pray, eat, laugh and enjoy my family.
It is not easy to stick to a routine. Since my uncle went into the nursing home for rehabilitation after his coma. I feel overwhelmed with taking care of the house, going to working, spending time with the little one, my husband and visiting my uncle to keeps spirits up
.You must find a way to be at peace and be still during the day to keep sane in this fast-paced world. Each morning I read a mediation from my e-mail subscription from the Catholic Company and I pray a rosary.
