  1. I have tears in my eyes reading this. If all of us could do all things we would not need anyone else- we would be self sufficient. I’ve done that enough times in my life out of necessity. Dena, celebrate your gifts and focus on them as they are legion. Has the woman leading the class published a book of devotionals that is now an Advent tradition in homes? I shall not bother others with a continuing list. My favorite piece of music is “The Shaker Song” so beautifully arranged by Aaron Copeland- “Tis a gift to be simple, tis a gift to be free, tis a gift to come down where you ought to be. And when you find yourself in the place just right, it will be in the valley of love and delight.” Please claim where you are and know that it is perfect.

    1. Thanks. It was just a bad moment. In the spirit of honesty, I thought I would share it as a part of my anxiety journey. I do try to remember that what I believe is imperfect is actually perfect. Thanks for the reminder. And I love the Shakers. Remind me to tell you about my visits to “Shakertown” sometime.

  2. We’re all a work in progress. Be patient with yourself. I was told recently that anxiety lies between what we expect and reality. Accept that reality is what it is for a reason. Find peace with that while remaining hopeful that God has an amazing planinf
