I love this image of Jesus carrying one of His sheep on His shoulders.
This is what He does for us over and over again: He carries our weight, He lets us rest, He takes us back home.
And He rejoices when He does this.
He doesn’t say, “Not again!” and angrily give up on us.
I want to be more like Him… towards Him… in our relationship.
That’s what I wrote about in this week’s Catholic Wife, Catholic Life Newsletter on Patreon (you can sign up for it here).
I publish this newsletter every Monday and it always includes:
+ 2 gluten-free recipes
+ a reflection & prayer based on Sunday’s Mass readings, and
+ links to budget-friendly fashion & home decor
Here are three newsletters I previously published that you can look through, to give you an idea of what they look like and what’s included:
Here’s this week’s prayer:
Father in Heaven, I remember a time when I was that lost sheep and when You looked for me. I remember when You carried me. And I remember times when I felt like I was so far away from You that I couldn’t see you off in the distance, though I trust that You were there. I know You love me and I want to love You more. I know you carry me and I want to trust in Your grasp — in how you’re holding me through what I’m going through right now. Please be with me this week and make Your presence even more clear. Amen.
