Dig In or Sleep In? You’re home for a visit and your mother wants to drag you to church. You’re ticked off because you want to sleep in. If you love someone, look beyond the words and actions to understand the feelings that prompt them. Dig in; find out the truth behind what’s being said. Could it be Mom’s been missing you and just wants your company? Though the needs of a parent and child are seldom the same, seeking to understand each other’s feelings is what counts. Mom gets to see that she’s important to you and that you care about what’s going on in her world. It’s also a great opportunity to bear your soul, to share how you really feel about faith. You may be surprised to learn that mom’s struggled spiritually too and can help. As for church, it may be just what you need, even more healing than sleep.
