anxhiliration

Anxhiliration is the new word I invented in a conversation this morning to describe our life right now. There is continuous exhiliration as we sense that God is leading us to something new, but there are pockets of anxiety as we aren’t quite sure what that will be.

I recently heard that the Bedouin in Israel, who still primarily live among the elements in tents, on average, live beyond 100 years old. Israel did a study and found that the main reason they live so long is because they encounter no stress in their lives. I wonder how many years of life the last few months might have cost me…
