walk among the trees

The message at church today was "pray for healing". Looking at the world today, I don't know anyone who doesn't need to be healed of something. Weather its overeating, overspending, smoking, back problems, etc, etc. We live in a broken world, and we are broken people. This may sound like a drag, not so upbeat, blah blah blah. Beth on her soapbox. And maybe so. Life has it's ups and downs, maybe I'm a little down. I tend to lean on the side of depression I've been told. But I fight hard not to let it take over. I take care of myself the best I can. Spiritually, mentally, and physically. And no I don't do any of those things perfectly. But I try, without the help of chemicals I might add.
There is a lot going on between my left ear and my right ear. I won't bore you with details, but we all need prayer sometimes, we all need healing.
I made this collage today. It took my mind off all the stuff. I thank God for the ability to make my art. I thank you all for taking the journey with me. Have a good week everyone. I'm going camping in Santa Cruz for mothers day weekend. Maybe being among the trees will improve my mood. It can't hurt.

Beth, I certainly understand the tone of your post. I, too, struggle with keeping my spirit up and not down. We live in a troubled and stressful world. It helps to read your words and know that there is another with similar feelings. Enjoy your weekend. I love the following quote -
" The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely, or unhappy, is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature, and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature." ANNE FRANK
