The helicopters and sirens have been going all morning. I am aware of the ways this makes me edgy, in general, with my kids. As my anxiety increases, my patience shortens. I don’t think the solution is to just ignore and pretend there is nothing the matter with the fact that police and emergency vehicles are in a flurry around us. And yet I don’t want that to define who we are.
How does it look to live with the peace of Christ in the midst of chaos or fear?
