A Down Week

I've been down this week.  I had an unfortunate incident at work, and it has stuck with me, resulting in thoughts of "If only I had handled things differently...", and "I should have done THIS, not THAT...", and wondering if I am in the right place.

Self doubt, regret and not a little depression have been my constant companions his week.

But God's excellent timing brought me Hallie Lord's new book: "On The Other Side Of Fear: How I Found Peace". It's a quick read abut trusting God and being grateful in all things. She experienced health problems, financial difficulties and marital discord, and writes so honestly and openly about her life.  It was just what I needed this week.

I'm still having a hard time, but I am going to try to put my trust in God.

  1. Might I also recommend "Momastery" on FB: Glennon Doyle Merton is such an uplifting, warm and loving person that she generally has some wisdom to impart. Also, remember to get out for a nice, restorative walk when you're feeling down. I've not gotten enough exercise this week and am not as happy as I like to be because of it! Take care...JB
