Mood indigo

Great thing about today: the snow. Absolutely beautiful. Watched it fall in huge flakes when I woke up before dawn. Made first tracks when I walked to the bus stop. Loved the way it made the trees look and the way it brought people out to play later in the morning.

Good thing about today: work. Nothing amazing; things just went smoothly and I was able to have a few hours downtime between the morning service and our monthly prayer meeting in the evening.

Not-so-good thing about today: my mood. Thankfully, it hasn't been a problem when I'm with others; only when I'm alone. Mostly, I keep myself distracted, but once that loses its appeal, I have to own up to the fact that I'm melancholy and discontent. Basically, I'm done with today and want to skip ahead to tomorrow, where I can work and have more distractions. Time isn't on my side.

I have to own up to the fact that I'm melancholy and discontent.

that's been a real struggle of late for me as well. Work is a good distraction, but lying in bed with your thoughts that just won't quit aren't. :/ Will be praying for you.
I love being the one to make the first tracks... :)

And I'm sorry about the melancholy thing... I've been where you're at. Like a sense of purpose is missing. :/ I wish I had some advice for you! I would say this, though... don't think that taking delight in something as simple as fresh snowprints is not a purpose. I think God gives us the little things to push us through our days. Hold on to that; the melancholy will pass. *hug*
First tracks are awesome.

I agree—the little delights are especially necessary in the restless times. And I have a sense that you can relate in ways not everyone can, so your encouragement is particularly special. Thank you.
