I consciously try to cuss less in front of them. -- JayK
That's a keeper! Thanks, everyone, for the great replies.
The opening post came to me today when at a local business, where the employee did mention her family's losses during the fire and the GFM account, in the amount of $10,000.
Like you, I had no inclination whatsoever to mention the last days or God's kingdom. It was enough simply to listen with a sympathetic ear. I learned long ago not to try to fix the world's ills, or just those of one sad person.
Blessings and Peace.
