At the beginning of Lent our priest ended one of his homilies by saying, “Let us try to give up anxiety for Lent”, and not long afterwards one of our deacons spoke of much the same thing in his homily. I intended to be here all through Lent to try to help others do this very thing, but I succumbed to the anxiety and overwhelm beast myself. With some part-time work I found, my studies, family, and doing all the tax returns I was overwhelmed time-wise, and after Japan I sunk into anxiety, despite much prayer, and have only felt myself emerging recently.
Even to come to my website here, enter my password, and try to type something has seemed too much, but I’m trying to get back on my feet and back to my old self.
I have links to put in and peoples’ work to talk about… this is just to get me over the initial anxiety of typing something here. Can you believe we are about to enter Holy Week?
