"So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:31-33Turn your eyes towards Jesus. Set your priorities. Only He can give you the grace to reject the Devil’s lies, trust that He will take care of us, trust in your ability to handle whatever life throws at you, trust in my love enough to be vulnerable with me ... and hopefully, eventually trust again in the Church. If you can learn to lean on Him, you will find the peace you seek, for His “yoke is easy and burden is light.” So I’ll share this letter with you, but I’ll also post it anonymously because I know there is a whole community of loving, faithful readers who can offer their advice and prayers. We are not the first family to go through these trials, and we won’t be the last. Let’s lean on each other, lean on our community, and most of all, lean on Jesus. With so much love, Your Wife
