Do not worry

Dear Friends,

Those of you who know me will be aware that I like to be "organised" — I can't bear not being ready for events that come next. You may say that this way I am always living in the future and perhaps rushing though life. You may be correct! However I find if I have already prepared a meal and have it in the freezer or written some notes for shopping for the holidays I am able to cope with the unexpected event which might otherwise throw me into a panic. I have at times been labelled a "control freak" — not sure whether to take this as a compliment or not!

The other day I was talking to a close friend about my old age — who would look after me, where would I live, what would I live on — you know the sort of thoughts! He turned to me and quoted from Luke — the "consider the lilies of the fields" passage. We are told there is no need to worry about what to eat or what to wear as God knows what we need to live. We must not be afraid for the future just seek the kingdom of God.

I am going to try to remember this next time I get out my book of lists! If you can't remember the whole section of Luke I am referring to it is Luke 12 vs. 22 onwards.

Love to you all,

Christine
