Feeling dreary today, a little drowny. I laugh at myself for my highs and lows. A miracle happens and two days later I feel anxious for no reason. And then I think of the reasons.
Diets that don’t work.
Friends without moving boxes.
Jars I can’t open.
Bags of unchecked kale.
And then I realize. THESE are my problems? Ha! HA! These are not problems, these are inconveniences. These are blessings disguised.
Rain is coming to nourish the earth.
My son has friends and freedom.
I have too much food.
My friend is moving closer!
I have homemade kombucha in that jar.
Kale chips are coming soon.
I’m going to write more soon. I’m going to pray first. And sniff some Ylang Ylang.
Here’s a song from my favorite tehillim – Psalm 23, he’s singing: Gam ki elech begei tzalmavet, lo ira ra, ki Atah imadi, which means: Even as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will not fear any hardship for you are with me.
I’ve come so far from the valley of the shadow of death. So far.
