“Thank you, God, for this good life, and forgive us if we do not love it enough.” — Garrison Keillor
Good old Garrison Keillor. We’ve enjoyed hours (mostly on the car radio) of his folksy insights. And thankfully, usually I do love my life.
But the last couple weeks our usually placid life has become a unexpected roller coaster ride. There have a couple of the best “ups” and some truly disheartening downs– a friend’s cancer diagnosis, drastic changes at school… I’m woozy. And clinging to what I read in Philippians:
“Don’t worry about anything, instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for what he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything you can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” — Philippians 6-7 (NLT)
