Today is one of "those days", and it is a bit of an effort to remain focused on the positive. Nothing significant has happened, and in fact the same personal and economic challenges remain. But sometimes it can just grind on us, and before we know it slipping into a funk can happen in an instant.
Life has a way of throwing a lot at us, and right now I would be willing to turn in my "grown-up card" if I could. Sans that option, I think it is time to nurture my soul by counting my blessings.
As I sit here introspectively, gazing outside I find comfort, and I am reminded that it is a glorious day. We had a bit of rain, and the sun is glimmeringly golden in that way that only happens here in Fall. It is soothing to my soul to take in the beauty. For me, this is a favorite time of the year.
The cycle of seasons reminds me that there is a season and a time under heaven, and just as the seasons change, so too will the things that are burdensome, and a time is ahead for them to pass away. I just need to hold on, to weather thru.
I need to remain grateful for that which is good, to face that which attempts to take me down, to each day get up, to choose to look up, and just as the seasons change..... "this too shall pass," and "note to self", greater blessings are ahead.
"Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." ~ Psalm 30:5
