The Challenge to Love

These events don’t just impact the names and groups that get hashtags, but many other unnamed people who knew and loved them. ….To love requires sacrifice. Maybe we haven’t been willing to make the necessary sacrifices yet. Perhaps we haven’t understood the price of holding on to our ways and our own feelings at the expense of others.

What? Be Thankful For THAT???

I don’t have to look far to find a few of THOSE things…THOSE annoyances or even trials that I’ve been guilty of being less than thankful for just in the past week. ….. This isn’t a list of answers to problems; this is simply a list of treasures hidden in the frustrations and trials that remind me to enter into an attitude of thankfulness.
