365 Project - Day 348 - "What do you do? (Prayers to St. Joseph)"


December 14, 2015 - "What do you do? (Prayers to St. Joseph)"

What do you do...

... when someone you love more than life itself feels as if you do not love them?

What do you do...

... when they scream that they hate you?

What do you do...

... when they scream that you are a horrible father?

What do you do...

... when they tell you that you're ruining their life?

What do you do...

... when they say that they feel that they are not worth fighting for?

What do you do...

... when they tell you that they feel that they don't deserve to live...

... and you find yourself feeling the same way about yourself?

What do you do...

... when all you want is to hold them close to your heart and wrap them in your coat - like you did when they were newborn - holding them tightly... protecting them from all that seems to be against them in life?

What do you do?

What do you do?

You stand with your coat open and your arms outstretched...

You stand with your heart fully exposed...

... and you pray that they will come back to you... when they are ready.
