Sometimes we can be lazy in faith.
I just watched a documentary where the main person stated that to improve we must strive to "work on the outer edge of one's competence". This phrase really struck me for a few reasons: the recognition of our own weakness and the insinuation that some level of competence already exists to be improved upon.

We are united in suffering.
This past week, I lost my uncle. It was sudden, and no one, not even him was expecting this. Leading into Holy Week, it could seem as though this was horrible timing: we will miss him dearly on Easter, without question, but God's timing couldn't have been more appropriate.
