I thank you that my job is my vocation. For this blessing I am truly grateful. I am grateful that your hand is upon me, and that you give me the grace to do my work with joy.
from Short Prayers for Busy Women; inspirational thoughts to get you through the next five minutes by harriet crosby
This is the last in a series of short prayers to get through a tough week. Although my focus here at La Padre is on ritual sometimes ritual isn’t the practice that fits best.
Sometimes it’s journaling.
Sometimes it’s doing the bare minimum with as much self-care thrown in to get you through it until you have time to find the right ritual to help with your trouble du jour.
There is no one right answer or practice; it’s never that tidy. It’s always a little bit of this and a little bit of that. And with a little bit of faith, we figure it out. Amen.
