On this fifth Friday of Lent (Good Friday is just a week away!) Virginia is sharing one of her favorite quotes for our hearts to contemplate. It may be a bit familiar to faithful readers. (Virginia has shared this before, perhaps more than once. As stated, it is one of her favorites!) It’s a reminder to TRUST GOD when we may not understand what the heck is going on around us.

“Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting God who cares for you today will care for you tomorrow and every day. Either God will shield you from suffering or God will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace then and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.” Saint Francis de Sales

Here’s to trusting God will provide the grace to get us through this day, the next, and the next one after that. May God’s peace permeate our anxious thoughts and worries with extra doses of hope to cope with whatever is freaking us out right now (there’s plenty!)

grace, peace & HOPE!
