Gratitude Matters: Worrying?

Gratitude Matters
Fr. Stephen Rozelle, Christ Church, Pompton

So, you worry a lot. Bless you! It speaks to your love and compassion as a human being. It’s not the worrying that creates the upset. It’s that we’re not supposed to worry. “Don’t worry!” Does that keep you from worrying? Of course not!

What we worry about is what matters in our lives: our children’s health, our finances, etc. We don’t worry about the soy bean crop in China. We have no investment in that. Just look at it another way, worrying is our love and compassion showing up inside our minds. Give yourself permission to worry. It is a very loving way to be!
