Morning cattmatt, pinkrose and all you others out there,
I am sticking to my Vegan, but life has been incredibly tense for me these past two or three weeks. I don't know what to blame. I usually get out and walk and enjoy nature but with my knee, I am unable to walk off the blues.
I've been swimming but it isn't the same as getting out and looking over the San Francisco Bay on a sunny day. But hey, there is none because of all the rain. Eegads, I'm depressed.
I shooed everyone out this morning and am crying to you all. thank you for your prayers. Please keep them up. I need God's intervention in this health matter.
Yesterday, that 'man' who had lost like 400 pds said that God was more interested in our insides than our outside comfort. I know my first big healing, I cried out for God to come into my heart. I got Him and healing. So I believe it's true. I need to seek the kingdom of God and all else will come too!
Please have a blessed day tomorrow. kc
I am truly sorry you are depressed, kc. However, you are doing some good things--swimming, writing to us, praying, eating some good foods.
I expect the sunshine will soon return and you will be glad to see it. However, in regard to your pain in your knees and your depression, I hope you will not be too reluctant to receive professional help. Friends are great but they have limits. You may need more than family and friends can give you now.
I pray for your comfort, peace and healing. Let us look up and know He cares...even when we do not feel His presence.
"...Therefore, to keep me from being too elated, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me, to keep me from being too elated. 8Three times I appealed to the Lord about this, that it would leave me, 9but he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.' So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 10Therefore I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ; for whenever I am weak, then I am strong." (2 Corinthians 12, NRSV)
