I have been thinking today. At first I named the post “What is permanent?” with the first line being “What is temporary?” but as I wrote, I had to change it. I actually just deleted that entire post and started over.
Yesterday and this morning the depression was bad. I do not recall it ever being that bad. I’d rank it an 8 or 9 out of 10. It has subsided. I’m probably down to a 4 or 5 – which might be my “normal” state.
As I was pondering things, I decided that my way out was the way in. This it not really something I wanted to think. There is some truth to that statement but there is also some falsehood to it as well. It is a trap, I suppose. One I find myself in quite regularly.
I read more of the book “Don’t Follow Your Heart” at some point this morning. I really liked chapter 9 but I cannot really reference the entire chapter so I selected the following:
No, we pray for greater faith, love, holiness, wisdom, discernment, experience of God’s grace, boldness, joy in God, and less satisfaction with worldly things.
I really just want to talk about God’s grace but I also want to talk about each one. This has caused my mind to become locked on the topic. *sigh*
It is Sunday. Tomorrow a new week begins. Maybe it will rain.
