Whenever we are weighed down with care, all we need do is to hand our burden to Christ, trusting him to carry it for us and with us. As the psalmist says, “Whenever I am afraid, I will put my trust in you.” A simple act of trust, a simple letting go, ushers us into the place of rest.

    What I am burdened with is knowing that my children do not go to church (we have 3 grown children – only one with children) and one without children and her husband declare they are atheists. The father of my grandchildren also confesses no faith at all. My grandchildren’s mother ever only brought them once or twice a year. THey are empathetic of others and good children; like their mother and their father is generally a good thoughtful person. Their mother has let me do bible lessons with them, this may be the last year I can do it with the one in Kindergarten before her schedule is too busy as well as her resistance to it. I copy Children’s Worship BUIlletins for them and write commentary every week and their mother reads it to them before they do some of it.
    They sometimes say grace. Taking time for retreats I haven’t done in several years.
