High Anxiety and a Kind Word

The pearl is the queen of gems and the gem of queens.

Congenial conversation—what a pleasure!
    The right word at the right time—beautiful!

       ~ Proverbs 15:23

     Anxiety.  That was the word.  Feeling the pressure of leadership in a particular place at a very particular time.  It was growing, and rather than let it eat me up,  I found a friend with whom I could discuss the situation.  She told me she would worry about those small details, and I should concentrate on the big picture because “You get it, I don’t.”

     I would not necessarily describe myself as a big picture person.   The needs of the individual are very clear to me when I am teaching. Sometimes I get lost in over-focusing.  But that kind word…unlocked the door and showed anxiety the way out.

     Today, laugh, find a way to give someone a kind word, a gentle pat on the shoulder, a note in their lunch.  You will be the gem of queens in their day’s necklace.


(For a laugh…High Anxiety!)

Because of Him,
