Ups and Downs

I was sick last week.  It felt like I was never going to climb out of this ill feeling.  It wasn't just about being down for the count.  It had to do more about a feeling of malaise.  It felt like I was never going to feel better again.  Are dementors from Harry Potter real?  I was understanding the sensation of never feeling better again.  So dramatic!!!! 

I'll tell you what worked better than chocolate for me.  Carbs!!!  I had gluten free everything bagels with cream cheese.  I listened to some Christian music.  As the fever subsided and the medicine worked on the aches and pains, I felt myself better.  I was on the floor and fallen but I got up again.  Proverbs 24:16 says, "For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again, but the wicked shall fall by calamity." 

It's Christmas.  I haven't put up the tree yet.  Don't tell me that I am the only one!!!  I started buying the presents.  This has given me a modicum of happiness as I love to shop and I love the people that I am buying gifts for.  I am happy because I am choosing to remember that despite any bad things that may be happening in my life, or in any body's life, I want to remember that God is with me.  Good or bad, up or down, sometimes up and down, I am not alone and God is with me wherever I go.  If that's not enough to make you happy then I don't know what to tell you.  Praise God!!!
