If you had told me last year all the events of this year, it would have been hard to believe! It’s always surprising to see all the family changes from year to year. Last week was the first time in decades I didn’t host Thanksgiving. We moved the family, shut down the store, opened a new store, buried my brother and I turned a year older. The only predictability is that things are always changing!
In a sense, we can say that all times are uncertain. Our response to uncertainty shows our courage, or lack thereof. It always shocks me when people are shocked. There are advantages to being a pessimist! We seem to survive our problems better because we not only expect them, we thought they’d be worse!
Every year candidates win or lose elections, babies are born, people die, get married, change jobs, move, find God, make new friends or get new cars. The list goes on, yet one constant is that we are always learning and growing. A funeral I attended this week was very helpful as I learned about how grace changed the life of the person we were honoring. It’s not about the unknown season. It’s about how we face it.
On our show today, we interview Jan Silvious, author of the book, Courage for the Unknown Season, as she shares her reasons for hope during confusing times.
What events taking place this year have surprised you? How do you calm yourself?
