Just a note to let y’all know that I’m 86-ing all my emails. Today the inbox will be empty. I’m starting over today.
First–For the past few weeks I’ve been plagued with the worst cold I’ve ever had that morphed into a nasty case of bronchitis. I think I’m on the back side of the bronchitis now.
Second–Since October I’ve been hounded by recurring PTSD symptoms and some depression. Those symptoms turn me into a stump and I’m not motivated to do much more than breathe, eat, sleep and watch the idiot box. I have neglected answering emails and reading the bloggers I follow.
So, I’m starting over. Today. Clean slate. Empty email inbox. Am I past the PTSD and depression. No. They’re still hanging around. God, my psychologist and Matthew 6:25-34 will help me work through them in God’s good time.
This is a season. Not a lifetime. It’s not pleasant. But it’s life. I’m grateful for this time for God to work in my life. It’s not clear to me how God will use it for my good. I just know He will. He promises us He will. I like to remind myself also of Robert Browning’s comforting words in his immortal poetic masterpiece, Pippa Passes, “God’s in His heaven; all’s right with the [with God’s] world.”
