February 2018

When people ask how we are, most of the time we respond, "Busy!" I hear just about everyone say that they don't know where all the time goes. There doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day. We have so much to do and not enough time to do it. Sometimes, we want to help more in certain areas, but don't know where we will find the time to help. I hear this struggle from just about everyone I talk to.

We tend to get stressed and science shows that being stressed leads to more health problems. With Lent right around the corner and thinking about what we are giving up, stress is something that we can add to our list and it would make all of our lives better. So many of us have a life that is “full” and having a “full” life is a good thing. Let go of stress and perfection and see your life full of joy and love. Things in life don’t have to be perfect. After all, God requires love, not perfection.

God Bless,
Angela McCoy
