Standing in the hallway, I’m overwhelmed. My head is spinning. I feel just awful. Armies of racing thoughts invade my fresh-out-of-bed brain attacking in all out war. I ask myself why I feel down and drained and It’s like all at once, I get 5,000 responses in my head. Information overload.
The treadmill is broken and unrepairable, I need exercise. Because the area we live in now has mountains and we were in flat land for 2 years, my allergies are in full bloom this season. A bunch of other stuff trailed behind inside me until I went outside with the dogs. Still daylight at 8 p.m. and I remember why I love spring… I made sure the dogs were doing okay, then I just stood there beside this Bradford Pear tree in the middle of the lawn in front of the house. I gazed up at the sky, smoky gray. I thought about all of my problems and then just closed my eyes to feel God’s embrace. The evening breeze.
Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”
I felt a couple of drops hit my face a few minutes later and the dogs and I all went back inside.
It does the heart good to get out of the house and into nature. To look up at God so to speak, and away from my monitor sure felt good. I needed that hug. So bad!
God bless everyone tonight.
