I wonder about a lot of odd things. This morning I realized I had “fried” my brain in much the same way I fried that of my first show horse, General Silver, some 25 years ago. In the course of my morning wonderment I came up to a question about ADHD and video games. I’m going to ask for your opinion since I don’t have an answer to the question.
There is a gathering cloud of anxiety shrouding many in our nation today regardless of affiliation of either faith or politics. Levels of doubt, fear, and worry increase even as the enormity of Hurricane Sandy’s impact continues to spread. Coupled with catastrophic property damage, loss of life, loss of home and/or livelihood, and the presidential election on the horizon, even those who were without stress a few days ago are now experiencing dis-stress. What are we to do? To whom do we look for help?
My husband and I are in the home stretch of preparing our new place. Most of the work inside the house part of the building is done, the horse stalls are finished, and the fence that will keep the equine members of the family off the front porch will be completed by week’s end. Just as a racehorse must push itself to the very limit of what is physically possible in the final furlongs to reach victory, we are also mustering all resources to complete the work at the new, begin to move horse, house, and property stuff, and then make all at the old ready for another family. Fatigue, aching muscles, and stretched resources of all kinds are draining our reserves. Each day we must visit the well of God’s grace that we may begin anew each morning.
