Life is full of changes and as I get older change is more of a challenge. I've heard the phrase, "set in your ways" and yes, I am. I like consistency and order, structure and boundaries, and I do seem to micro manage thinking my way is right (and best)! But we must all try to work as a unit and be respectful of others and their ideas. We may differ in opinions but need to listen with and open mind. We need to respect others and be considerate of others. Now I sound like my mom but she was a good teacher if these kindnesses in life. Let's try this week to be more aware of others and "considerate all joy" to be doing for others.
My brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of any kind, consider it nothing but joy, because you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance: and let endurance have its full effect, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking in nothing. - James 1:2-4
Love and Prayers, Norma.
