signs of stress

In top of the Christmas rush and Bible College marking and Advent services, the Taylor family are moving house in a few days. I think the stress is beginning to show.

Last night one of the 92 year olds in the church died. Funeral planning was booked with the family for 11 am this morning. When I went looking for the car keys, they were gone. I searched high and low, and then texted my wife in a panic. Only to find that for some (stressed-related?) reason she had my keys in her handbag.

Tonight both our girls were performing at an end of year concert. My wife wrapped the ticket beside my (now found) keys, with strict instructions regarding start time. I arrived at the venue, only to find that for some (stress-related?) reason, the ticket was gone and I (still) have absolutely no idea where it went.

  1. Stress causes all kinds of mishaps. My cousin, a Minster passed away last week, then my cousin in Tampa, Florida being treated for cancer was robbed coming out of a pet store. It seems to hit us when we are vulnerable at times. I believe God carries us and pulls us through.

    Blessings to you and your family. Such beautiful and honest words to read.

    In His Grace,
