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!!!
