Have you kinda “let yourself go” during the last month of “sheltering at home?” I’ll be honest, yoga pants and pajamas have been my clothing of choice. I wear my glasses, you know, in case I happen to fall asleep in my recliner, and makeup? My only comment is that I’ve saved money this month. And that’s a good thing. I’ve saved money on gas. I’ve gotten to work at home – my little Sophie Mae papillon has gotten so spoiled! So – why have I found myself spiraling down into “the dumps!” Depression is tough! I hate it when I feel like this!
But today I remembered a blog that I wrote sometime last year. It was based on the thought, “Sometimes when you’re in a dark place and feel like you’ve been buried, maybe you’ve just been planted!” Don’t you love that thought? I needed that thought today. The difference in being buried and in being planted is the way you look at it. If you look inside and just think of yourself, you will go deeper and deeper down. But, when you’re planted, not only do you have a future to look forward to, others around you will share in your beauty when (not if), you rise again.
And you will rise again. This, too, shall pass and brighter days will come. And through it all, we can know that we are not alone. It’s time to stretch towards the Son and grow. Simply blessed, Courtney
