A Danger Down

Turn back all ye from Alphabe-Thursday who want a jolly D. It's a post like this that puts the lachrymose in the fraise! I am very down about danger this week. In our very local news: meningitis, fatal car accident, bomb alerts and homes evacuated across the province.

Is there no stage of life at which the worry stops?

I am challenged by the stoicism, courage and faith of the Chilean miners. They really did find danger deep down. How fabulous is their resurrection. Angela's post, as always, says it all...

True... but it just doesn't make sense to live life in fear. Where would be the fun in that?

This was a really interesting take on Alphabe-Thursday. I'm sorry there are so many scary things going on around you right now.

It's good to see danger overcome, as it was in the case of those wonderful minors. I suspect, to their families, it did feel a bit like resurrection (the belief in which, to me, makes every danger seem a little less scary).

I think you start to worry when your first child is born and then you just never stop!

How those guys ever made it through is an absolute wonder. What dedication the Chilean people have. Everyone should love life the way they do!!

Completely understand feeling down when so much danger is around. It's small and big things like the rescue of the Chilean miners that continually remind me to believe and have faith and put the danger and unknown things in perspective.

Thank you for the mention!

Sometimes it does feel as if we are surrounded by danger, difficulty and disaster - and it is good to remember Romans 8:38 - nothing can separate us from God's love!

If you find a way to live life without worry, let me know, OK?

I think life with strife is OK, it makes us appreciate each victory and lovely moment.

Your post was wonderful and deep...and I feel very shallow that I had to laugh at the first line in your link.

Thank you.

A+

This week the preacher preached a sermon in which he said very much what I needed to hear: Do not lose heart! Sometimes it is hard to feel hopeful, but I think we're supposed to try. Easier said than done sometimes!
