Anxiety and worry are wasted energy, and I should know. I am an expert in both areas. Does anyone else feel that way? I like what Arthur Somers Roche wrote: “Worry is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.” Let us seek the voices of those who will bring cheer to our lives and lighten the weight of these unhealthy emotions that would otherwise cut a dangerous channel within us.
Lift my spirit, O Lord, through the gracious gifts of my sisters and brothers, who want only the best for me. Amen.
