The Weight of The World

Wow, there is so much going on in the world. Everything seems fast, crazy, unbalanced, stressful and devastating.

Wall Street is swinging wildly!
London is completely out of control.
Tens of Thousands are dying of starvation in East Africa.
Fallen Heroes returned home today.

And I can go on and on....

Sometimes it is hard to listen to the news. It hurts your heart. It hurts your head and hurts your feelings. There are so many things we have no control over. We have no control over what is happening above. We can only pray for those affected, and pray for our own strength as we are affected by these things either financially or emotionally.

There are moments when the pain of the world weighs so heavy and dark on our lives that we wonder how or when it will change.

The world can be a scary, scary place. All we can do is love, breathe, hold each other tight and pray for strength. Sometimes prayer, friends and family are all you have.

Take care of each other and live each day for the blessing it is for, any day above ground, is a BLESSING!
