    Falling down #Depression #Anxiety #Faith #Hope #Relationships #Christianity #PTSD #MentalHealth

    It never ceases to amaze me how God speaks to me sometimes through the most random of situations. As we continue our holiday in Scotland we were walking past the main entertainment hall in Edinburgh yesterday and saw that there was a concert that night featuring “Doguee Maclean”, Scotlands most famous folk singer.

    We managed to get tickets and the concert was wonderful. He spoke about how as a child he was told it’s ok and normal to fall down. The key is not to stay there. The lyrics of the song really inspired me.

    Dream on, little one
    There are flowers in your hair
    And see what the time has done
    Scattered diamonds everywhere
    And when you're standing on your highest hill
    And you shout but no one hears

    You can fall but you must not lie down
    You can fall but you must not lie down
    And though you're lost in the deep of the fiddle's sweet sound
    You can fall but you must not lie down.

    Sometimes it’s hard to get up on your own. Reach out. There are people everywhere who will reach down to you. Don’t give up hope.

    Gratitude

    Once upon a starry night, the sky of stars shined so bright.
    Lightyears of distance between each one, there are many abroad just like our sun.
    Many gazed way up high, but some, the old, began to cry.
    The beauty of the cosmos is beyond human description, gazing way up may be one’s prescription.

    Creation in itself, born from our Creator. Born with infinite precision, unreplicable, loved by him.
    From the fish of the sea to the birds of the sky.
    Every microorgansim, every macroorgansim.
    Biology, Chemistry, and Mathematics, all is connected without one atom left out. This connection is brought from the one up high.

    Us humans take much for granted.
    Overlooking the beauty and work is all we do.
    Overlooking his grace and his mercy, our maker, our healer, our companion. Love is all he wants from us, for us to love him, others, and all.

    The universe will not last forever, all will come to an end.
    The book of life shall close and the end of the story will commence.
    Until that day, I strive to love, I strive to forgive, I strive to take up my cross, respect all people, to deal with my condition gratefully and out of love.
    Watch that sunset, climb that mountain, walk that beach, and spend time with those you love most.
    Someday, you won’t be able to.

    Random thoughts #MentalHealth #Depression #Anxiety #PTSD #Faith #Christianity #Thoughts #Relationships

    I am amazed that at ages 7 and 9 my Granddaughters there are times they are concerned about what others are thinking about their appearance etc.

    I tell them the uncomfortable truth is “Most people are so absorbed with the same thoughts they probably don’t even notice them”.

    It got me thinking about the times people have expressed their opinion about what I must think about as a Pastor. Honestly most people have no idea. So, at the risk of shocking you all here is a random selection of my thoughts from this morning.

    “I must stop telling people that I don’t care about the recently acquired surgical wounds on my arm and leg, because I do care about them. They are quite confronting “.

    “Chicken and oyster sauce rocks”.

    “I hope the cardiologist gives us the go ahead to travel when we see him Monday.

    “How things have changed. Years ago a Pastor who went on holidays was considered as lacking commitment. Now it’s compulsory for us to have breaks”.

    “I have come close to dying so many times, make the next decades count”.

    “A child who sings out loud is delightful”.

    “I hate the noise of shopping centres”.

    Hello coffee, you are one of life’s wonderful joys”.

    What random thoughts do you have?

    Not a Halloween fan.

    I don't care for #Halloween . Sure the junk food is good. ha ha. It's nothing to do with #Faith . I just don't like it, giving out candy or dressing up. I don't like scary movies. I guess i grew out of it. I liked it when i was younger. #TheMighty #MightyTogether #MentalHealth

    It’s been 8 surgeries in 3 months yet in the darkest of days, of which there have been many, God has taught me, held me and reassured me. I am grateful.

    My anxiety's biggest fear

    I just found out my dad needs to have emergency surgery for a blockage in his stomach. He's the type of guy who's never sick besides an occasional cold and even then he would get up to go to work because he's strong and the hardest worker I know.

    I can see the fear in his eyes but I know he is going to come out stronger than he went in. Let his faith be stronger than his fears. My faith is strong for him right now. I don't have the strength to be weak and he needs me.

    Thank God for my mom forcing him to the emergency room. Only a man who loves a woman so deeply would stop being stubborn for just a second. I trust in God. Our faith is never lost. This too shall pass. All of a sudden the things that didn't really matter before, really don't matter at all right now.

    I never ask for anything because I just don't know how to but I do ask for prayers. Thank you.
