Intro: Depressed and Realization
Mom talked to me this morning and said you know, when she's depressed, she finds it stems from ingratitude. That made me pause. You know, that's true. I need to praise the Lord for what I do have, even if I don't meet my own expectations. It's probably one of the things the Lord wants me to see.
Mom showed me her calendar today that she bought to put up the days she works. The sayings and verses in it are so beautiful! It refreshed me and made me happier just reading them. So, I've included them below.
I'm moving very slowly today, but I think I'll try to update this webpage somewhat. Come what may, I'm choosing to rest in the Lord's Presence, beauty and peace.
