When I’m overwhelmed by feelings, schedules or circumstances, my therapist often tells me to “just notice.” As I slow down and focus, I see things more clearly. This can motivate me to action, but perhaps more often, I am content to linger, realizing that my stress is temporary and that I don’t run the world after all.
This message is an excerpt from “Just notice: Walking into Lent with Martha” by Cara Strickland in the March 2017 issue of Gather magazine. Today we remember Perpetua and Felicity and companions, martyrs at Carthage, who died in 202.
