mostly fluff

i realize that this blog is mostly fluff but, no matter how many times i tried to post fun, fluffy posts this week, i couldn't. so i stopped trying. because my mind just kept coming back to what a crappy week it's been. work wasn't crappy. friendships weren't crappy. family relationships weren't crappy....it's what i decided to no longer write about anymore that's crappy. in all honesty, this post has been hanging out as a draft in my post box for quite a few days. but i decided to share it anyway. never in my life did I think I would face something so completely consuming, enduring or life-altering. some days it seems conquerable. some days it feels I’ll drown. never has it felt easy.

advice is good, but sometimes a single verse is better. After waking to the “drowning feeling,” I logged on to facebook to see a friend’s status. And all it said was:

Because of Your great love, I am not consumed, for Your compassions never fail. They are new every morning. Great, O Lord, is Your faithfulness." Lam. 3:21-233

no matter what happens next. if it gets worse, i know i wont ever be consumed. and that makes it feel conquerable today.

SAFE
