“There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.”
I’m leaving for a funeral in an hour. One truth is running through my head:
Life is short. Use it wisely.
Q – How is life wasted?
A – Nothing wastes more energy than worrying.
Resist the temptation to worry.
Fight down the lie that worry can help.
Don’t worry alone. Pray for help, and find others to join your journey.

“Jesus wept” are my favorite two words in the Bible. That may sound strange to you, but I love knowing that Jesus wept. Knowing that Jesus wept comforts me. I think to myself, “My God, my God you know how I feel.”
So many people, myself included, have felt that we need to “be strong” for others. I know that people have and will say to “be strong”.
DON’T, it’s a lie.
It’s okay, healthy, good, and Jesus-like to grieve the loss of loved ones.
“Strong” comes from God and leaning on others. When you’re grieving you’re weak.
