“What makes us holy and pleasing to God is what our vocation demand of us, and not what our own will chooses.” (St. Francis de Sales)
Life in the trenches can be difficult. The daily grind, the struggles of married life and raising kids, the "ordinary" schedule of school, work, cooking, carpools and errands, etc…can wear you down. Sometimes, you may feel the urge to jump out of the trench and run away from the battle, but you will find that the cross outside of the trench is actually far worse. Embrace your identity, embrace your vocation with a loving and enthusiastic spirit…God notices and he will bless this fidelity both now and into eternity!
