  1. Years ago, I developed the habit of thinking this way about something I was worried about:Can I do anything to avoid or mitigate the feared event?

    If yes, I do it. If no, I verbally express the fear, verbally turn it over to God, and dismiss it from my mind anytime it pops up after that. It’s been such a habit over the years that I can’t remember the last time I was really worried about anything. Even when my husband was out of work with a back injury, or when he started his own business, or when I was facing any of my drug-free home births. I simply pray that God’s will be done, and ask for strength to endure what must be endured.

    I love the prayer in The Scent of Water.
    “Lord, have mercy. Thee I adore. Into Thy hands.”

    Things have always worked out just fine.
