“Dear Lord, this past week­end we had my grand­son bap­tized, and though I was sur­rounded by those I love most, my mind kept cloud­ing over with worry. I wor­ried over how my 85-year-old mother looks so frail. I wor­ried over how my youngest child, who’s now 16, seems to be run­ning with the wrong crowd. How do I cast off wor­ries about the fu­ture to make the most of the present?”

Wis­dom of the Word

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us re­joice and be glad in it. —Psalm 118:24

We un­der­stand and yet…

Even when we’re sur­rounded by love and laugh­ter, our minds can get tan­gled up in fear. How do we stop dread­ing to­mor­row and em­brace the joy in the here and now?
