Kaelyn's Korner

Weekly column by Kaelyn Pfenning

One of our elders at church this past Sunday exhorted us to hold this world loosely.

Tragedies often highlight the brevity of life for all of us.

This earth is filled with heart-wrenching wickedness, loss, sin, sorrow and so much darkness. 

Yet we who believe are simply sojourners or travelers passing through this world.

As long as I can remember, I have enjoyed the rain.

Growing up, I liked to play in the rain, and I have always appreciated the coziness of hearing the rain fall outside while being warm and dry inside.

When I am sad, the rain seems to reflect my feelings.

Psalm 103

This week, I would just like to share Psalm 103.

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!

Moving around a lot as I grew up, I didn’t know my grandparents very well.

Yet seeing my son bond with his grandparents, I am beginning to understand the beautiful role that grandparents can play in a child’s life.

Also, there can be value in grandparents contributing to the next generation.

Life after death

We often don’t understand why tragedies happen in this life.

Yet the Lord God Almighty, who breathed life into man, holds the past, present and future in His hands.

He is the only One who is able to give life after death.

Word games

A recent trending word game is Wordle.

This game gives six guesses to discover the five letter word, giving clues with each word tried.

A green letter means the letter is in the right place.

A yellow letter means the letter is in the word but in a different place, and no color indicates that letter is not in the word.

Seven months

Watching my seven-month-old son this past weekend felt bittersweet.

I love to see him crawl so smoothly and quickly now across a room, yet I cannot believe how much he has changed since we brought him home from the hospital.

Those early days and weeks are a blur of sleepless nights.

Most of us struggle to find our identity.

Particularly as children, we are growing, learning and developing into who we will be as adults.

There was a time, as a little girl, that I felt relieved while reading a book, thinking I would never give birth.

I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” (John 14:18)

This verse recently stood out to me as one of my biggest fears is being separated from those I love.

This fear probably stems from my early childhood.
