Just a glimpse of me...

Do you ever feel STUCK? In 2000, I began looking for answers to some tough questions in my life. I'd searched high & low and finally conceded to search the promises found in the Bible. Those promises have sustained & guided me through the loss of a parent, the struggle with anxiety & depression, the loss of a valued relationship and so much more! I've found joy amid the pain. And, I want to share it with you!

Too Depressed for Earrings

As I rushed out the door today to help transport a friend from one job to the next (since her teenager had the family car), I looked at my hair pulled back in a ponytail, face with the remnants of yesterday's make-up & wearing work-out clothes. And, I thought to myself,
"You really need to do something to improve your looks girl!"

The thought of putting on some glitzy earrings to distract people from the view (as I have done on numerous occasions) entered my mind. But, immediately, my inner self screamed out, 
"I'm too depressed for earrings today! Just go girl!"

I immediately burst out laughing, grabbed my car keys & headed out the door. I might not want to leave my comfortable cocoon. But, I do! And, I thank God for numerous "sister friends" who brighten my day & could care less whether I am wearing earrings or have any make-up on.

Good friends don't judge what's on the outside because, they see & love what's on the inside. They see your potential. Healthy people (or those who are TRYING to be healthy) don't hide in their homes "until they put their make-up on." But, they venture out & share their lives.
There are "friends" who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a sister (okay, it says brother). Proverbs 18:24
