I am 65 going on 90. ;) I pastor First Church of God in Waco, Texas. I'm just starting woodworking. I have been battling liver cancer for about two years and I was going down hill physically and emotionally. Then my wife bought me a compound miter saw and said, "Stop talking about woodworking and start doing it!" I have, and what a great blessing it has been. I'm doing so much better, physically, emotionally and to me most importantly, spiritually.
The Old Testament prophet Nehemiah said, "Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Woodworking has been used by God to give me back the joy of life which is my strength! That joy comes from the presence of Jesus with me as I make saw dust and learn new things. He seems to enjoy it since He and His earthly father were both carpenters. I can actually feel Him there with me guiding my hands and NOTHING could bring me more joy.
-- I thank God for everything, especially all of you!

Anxiety is something none of us like to admit we have from time to time. That could be because we don’t recognize it or understand it. Sometimes it comes out in the form of an angry outburst and we think, “Where did that come from?R...
