Encourage One Another and Build Eachother Up
There have been so many times in my life that I thought finally everything is good, but then there it goes and life hits. You never know what to prepare for.
You just know to be prepared for anything. To be the best that you can be and trust God to lead you through it. Knowing you will come out stronger on the other side.
When I was a kid, my childhood was not normal. So I learned at a young age to be prepared for anything and be content.
There were so many things that happen from the time I was young. It’s been so hard dealing with the emotions over the years.
When I thought I had overcame so many feelings over 20 years ago and now there resurfacing.
Little did I know they only went deeper inside of my heart, hiding until the day I can handle dealing with them.
It’s so hard when you’ve held all those emotions inside for so long, and then all of a sudden, they start trying to resurface. Do you suppress the feelings or deal with them?
This past September, my husband and I went on our 30th Anniversary trip to Fair Field Glade, Tn. It was so Beautiful there.
The resort is popular for golf, of which we don’t play lol:) We enjoyed exploring the beautiful surroundings and relaxing.
While we were there, we had no schedule only time — spending days driving seeing mountains, the prettiest of skies with fluffy white clouds.
I could just sit and watch the sky’s for hours, so peaceful, calm and soothing. Took my mind off of the pain from the Sarcoidosis.
We had a very relaxing trip, it’s always great getting away from the same routine at home day after day. When we got home, sure did miss the vacation feel
he said Mom this is so depressing like three times, and I was like what it can’t be, then I read it and it was depressing.
That next night I tried writing it again, this time, I feel asleep while writing it.
The next day when I looked at my work it was depressing. Also, I didn’t understand why I was having such problems with it.
My daughter Elizabeth came home from her internship at a church telling me about there devotion that day.
She said there is power in the tongue, we can speak life or death and she went into telling me all about it and that my name was brought up and they prayed for me.
(I admit I used to speak more positive over myself, it’s gotten harder with the pain and sickness but it’s time to Change and I’m Ready.)
Right then I knew that no matter how I feel it’s time for me to speak with faith and proclaim the Word!
After that I realized that the reason I couldn’t write the post was, because all the depressing words were coming out of deep inside of me and I didn’t even see it, but now I do.
I finished the post and it’s written and published already.
One other thing I realized was that Traveling is great therapy for me, it brings healing. I was reminded of the times, while on vacation that I felt energy and alive again.
Then I would come home and go back into the same old routine because of how much body pain/fatigue I felt.
If you have a loved one or know of someone who is dealing with sickness or depression, I know this sounds weird, but take them on vacations, or little getaways, help them see that they can still feel alive again.
Just a stroll or a visit can bring such joy into someone’s life. I never knew how much we really need each other until this disease happened to me.
People do get lonely that is sick, yes they have bad days, but they also have Good days when they would enjoy the company or maybe going somewhere different.
The only difference is now they are not as fast or able to go like they once did before, but they can sit and talk and ride.
I can’t wait until my next outing, wherever it may be.
