Thoughts

It seems like the past couple of days have just flown.  I've been super busy at work and super tired when I get home.  We spent most of the weekend messing with the computer.  There are still a few kinks that have to be worked out with it.  I don't want to beat it to death.  When I get the E-Machine back, this computer is taking a trip to the Univ. of Pgh for some fine tuning.

As I read the journals, I see so many are suffering from the blahs to deep depression.  This has been an extremely rough winter for many.  I pray that those who are suffering from mental anguish receive the peace they so need.

I've been digging through my back up drive and found the tag I made above.  I must have been in a blah state of mind because I titled it broken dreams.  I can't speak for all but I know many of my dreams have been broken.  I've clung by a teeny tiny thread to my sanity at times in my life.  Somehow I managed to claw my way back to what I consider normal.  Ok....my kids would say not...LOL...but I would say yes.

My message tonight is never, ever give up.  Somewhere, some how, some way the answer is out there.  Of course, my answer is God/Jesus/prayer.  God didn't create us to fail.  He knows we fall flat on our backs and is there to hold us until we get up again.

This is written by one who has lived in the darkness and found her way out, and the only explanation for it is that God led the way......Keep the faith...Hang on...and....Don't ever, ever give up....

Love to all.....CHRIS

amen to that, Chris. Glad you found your way out through the Lord. My fear is so many don't know Him and can't see what help He can bring and the peace He can bring even in the midst of suffering and pain.

I read some really depressing entries myself.  And I can't say I haven't felt like that too but yes, we just keep pressing on....and yes, it does get better.  GBU, Shelly
