A status report… recycled from my latest email to Michele. 😉
I still check the local news websites (for updates that directly relate to my life), but like you, I shun the Yahoo’s, the MSN’s, etc. Primarily because I realized that a disproportionate number of their so-called headlines are merely speculation. [“XYZ says the pandemic could deplete the world’s supply of widgets!” 😒 Oh, it COULD? Then it also could NOT. Remember the good old days, when the news stuck to the facts??] Plus, even their valid reports can provide additional things to worry about. “No widgets?! Oh NO! I HADN’T EVEN THOUGHT OF THAT!!” :FretFretFret:
I’m sorry you’ve been anxious. Believe me, you’re not alone — and I don’t think it’s just the two of us, either! Especially when my work doesn’t exactly keep my brain engaged, and my mind tends to camp out on worst case scenarios. More and more, I find myself turning on the radio to WayFM. The DJs consistently offer a positive, Biblical perspective, and song after song speaks deeply to my struggles. Many of the lyrics can double as a prayer, as in two of my top current favorites: “Peace Be Still” by Hope Darst and “You Already Know” by JJ Heller.
