All of the PAX who are dealing with illness, injury, travels, and family
Many people in our society today tend to gravitate towards extreme anxiety, or extreme apathy. Those on the anxiety end seem to wake up every day looking for something or someone to attack. Whether it be family, careers, politics, or anything else in the world around them, they are always frustrated at something and wound up to 95%, ready to snap at anything.
The apathetic people, however, are the ones that no longer care. They've given up on the world around them, and don't want to leave their cave. They prefer to shut themselves off, binge watch Netflix, and ignore everything and everyone around them.
As Christians, we have a way to live between these 2 spectrums. We are called to cast our burdens upon the Lord, letting go of our anxiety and trusting in God. We are also called to have a heart of Thanksgiving (the biblical kind, not this week's turkey), and give the Lord thanks and praise for our blessings each day. By doing these things daily, we can help keep our heads and our hearts right, and avoid drifting towards the extremes of anxiety and apathy.
Gentlemen, let's do that again some time!
SYITG, Heidi
