If I had the cord to my camera I would have taken my camera out on a road sign expedition. But I don't know where the cord is and I don't want to buy a new one - not this month - not next - (I don't get paid again until the end of September - and my husband is a state employee and they have 3 furlough days a month [equaling about a 20% pay cut]). I also know I will find the cord as soon as I get a new one. We will see.
But as I thought about it - I decided to go with just one image.
The Bible. It is what I go to daily for DIRECTION, courage and strength. Not to mention sanity.
I have struggled with depression for my whole life. Seeing the world as it is, growing up by myself and genetics made a lovely depression stew for me.
I have self medicated and taken prescribed pharmaceuticals - but what works the very best for me, with zero side effects, has been a dedicated time with God in His Word on a daily basis.
The Word is living and active, able to divide soul and spirit and joint and marrow. Not to mention supernatural.
I could not put one foot in front of the other in any organized way without DIRECTION from The Bible.
I know that this makes me seem like a study in contradictions - but I do love the Coens, I do love The Big Lebowski, I don't mind hearing F bombs in certain situations, I did take drugs as a teen, I am liberal in many ways, I will buy a drink or two at a bar if my kids are playing music there AND I love Jesus, the Ancient of Days and the Bible.
Do not judge and hate God because of me.
I am who I am. (Somewhat like Popeye - without the heroics). I am trying to find my way in the world.
I get my DIRECTION from the Bible. But I still get lost.
