The words that Our Lady of Guadalupe spoke to St. Juan Diego apply to us as well, and we would do well to consider them often, particularly amidst our daily worries:

Listen, put it into your heart,… that the thing that disturbs you, the thing that afflicts you, is nothing. Do not let your countenance, your heart be disturbed…. Am I not here, I, who am your Mother? Are you not under my shadow and protection? Am I not the source of your joy? Are you not in the hollow of my mantle, in the embrace of my arms? Do you need anything more? Let nothing else worry you or disturb you.

    I am a worry wart. I have been worried/depressed/anxious all day 😦 I know that it does NO GOOD, but I do it anyway. It’s a struggle of mine. I hate it. I can’t make my brain think otherwise when I’m down in it. But in the back of my piddly brain, I always remember that God has always, always, ALWAYS provided out needs. ALWAYS. So, why do I still struggle with it!?
    Needless to say, I needed this. Thank you. ❤
