How Much Stress Do You Feel?
My morning routine (after I feed and praise the cat) ,is to get my coffee and check what happened in the world whilst I slept.
My go to sources are Twitter (I refuse to acknowledge the name change), Apple News for a good overview and my new fave “The Dispatch”.
Local news is gleaned from the scanner sites and what’s left of local reporting on Facebook.
When I’m finished, I want to go straight back to bed.
Things are not good…
My friends and family are anxious about much and there is much to be anxious about.
Covid, politics, inflation…are just the tip of the anxious iceberg.
I’m aware of the biblical exhortations to avoid anxiety and fear…I’m also aware that both are part of the human experience.
I do not believe that the emotions themselves are sinful…it’s how we choose to deal with them.
So…the question before the house is “how much stress are you feeling?'”
How do you handle your stress?
Where do you find joy?
Are you hopeful?
