Ahhhhh....


I've been in a sad, depressed, ugly, havin' a hard time livin' in my skin, type place over the past few weeks. I couldn't get into doing anything. Just a lump. I couldn't bring myself to do the things I truly enjoy doing even. I'd start and just kind of lose track and drop it. I was stuck. Whatever I did, someone would not be happy. There didn't seem to be any way out of it.

I prayed every day, and tried to turn it over. It was obvious that I wasn't going to be able to figure it out myself.

And then it came to me. The perfect thing that would have something for everybody. I am so thankful. I feel like a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders. It will still take time, but at least there was an answer!

Prayer works!

I'm so glad that you are feeling better. Lovely picture. Remember that your words so often bring "sunshine" to all of us :) Keep smiling, you're wonderful!

I admit that I am not especially faithful, yet whenever I feel the need to give it up to God, I am overcome with a sense of relief & peace.

My prayers are not religion based but simply conversations with God, some of which I have posted on my blog.

Glad you are on the upswing.

p.s. Nature is such a tremendous inspiration. Gorgeous photo!

I am sorry to hear that you were sad and in a funk. That is how I describe my low times = a funk.

I love the picture that best describes your mood - grey skies but a hint of a rainbow making it's way into the picture.

Take care of you!!

I understand. I think you know :o) and I am so thrilled to read this testimony of His faithfulness. God is Good.

Love to you.
