That’s quite an expression, Pooh has. It could mean so many things. Depends on how you look at it.
Oh, isn’t that true of life, in general. It all depends on what you see/choose to see!
I’ve probably been a real downer lately, my friend Mari made a bookmark for me that says: “If I have to smile, I’m not going.” And that about sums it all up. It’s the small talk, cheerful attitudes, be positive; all those things that used to define me; and so very well. I would just put on my rose-colored glasses if I felt indifferent.
Unfortunately, that hasn’t been working either. And yesterday, my wired mom made a comment that she didn’t want to bother me, just let me know I was in her prayers. AND THAT is what got me out of this funk, just a little bit. I feel the sparkly parts of myself coming back. I think the well-wishers in the world may have been avoiding me because I’ve been filled with grief and maybe unrecognizable.
AND in my comings and goings this morning, I have remembered (and felt) that the Spirit lives within me, no matter (or bother) how I’m “feeling.”
Romans 5:4 And patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady.
