“Mistakes are proof that you’re trying.”

~Ernest Hemingway

The message in church yesterday spoke to me: it was about worry. Later, good conversation with Gerry and a better night’s sleep solidified my intention to handle life differently this week.

The concerns for friends, family, and those I don’t know but whom God has burdened me to pray for remain. My resolve this week is to be faithful in prayer and practical help, set my mind on things above, and let go of pointless worry.

When I was a software developer we ascribed to the practice of “try, test, and adjust”. It’s an “adjust” week for me. Monday. We begin again.

Word wrangler. Photo taker. I post early every morning: a quote that speaks to me, one of my photos, and a few simple words.

  1. “to be faithful in prayer and practical help, set my mind on things above, and let go of pointless worry.” Just the words I needed to hear today, Linda. One of my children gives me plenty of practice in attempting to ‘set my mind on things above.’ Thank you for the encouragement.

  2. I hear you, Karen. It’s hardest of all to learn to let go with our children. Trusting in the One who loves them even more than I do makes it easier to do. Even still, I forget often and need to be reminded. Praying we both have a less burdened week.
