Die in Christ

I woke up with the hardest thoughts on my mind. A friend told me that when her children were young she prayed for health, happiness and safety. Now that they are older, she prays that if they die, they die in the Lord.

As much as I hate to think that is where I need to be, I am afraid she is right. The most important thing is that they die in Christ. I have a child with very risky behavior and I know that none of us are destined to stay in this world.

I pray that God is in our hearts and minds this day. Amen.

"Neither become obsessed with circumstances nor forego awareness of them."

My brother has been posting from Hua Hu Ching, and this quote I do agree with. I think you have to come to a certain place before you can actually stop obsessing and realize you need to enjoy life. God has taken me through the fire and I do believe that he does not want us to obsess but look to Him.

May we all feel peace.
