Way Out, Way In

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.
