“Last Sunday my son and daughter wanted to play on the church playground. Normally when this happens I hold their shoes and find a place to sit and we talk about where Mommy will be so we are all centred.
This time I wanted to go to the bookstore on campus (we go to a big church) and they wanted to play. I was fine with the arrangement; then my daughter said, "But what will I do with my shoes?" I said, "You can put them in a location and remember where they are and return to them."
She replied, "But I am going to be moving around the playground." I realized that at her point in life I, and her daddy, are her centre. She moves around in her day and continually returns to us.
I realized a desire to equip her to lean to God as the centre in her life, and to ultimately return to him throughout her day, as her centre. This is a process as she grows and as she learns to rely on his love and believe in his path for her. And I have the wonderful opportunity to be a part of that process, in his love and guidance.”

the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it;
and this you have the power to revoke at any moment."
