- Thank God for the escapes from worrying too much about national and international political matters provided by my hobbies, and for the steadying influence of my prayer life. It's important to be aware of things that are happening, and to make plans that are flexible enough to adapt to coming changes. But worrying too much can make a person sick, and fear can paralyze a person, making it hard to do things that need to be done. So tonight I'm thankful for, among other things, the liberating effects and discipline provided by my hobbies and my prayer life.
