~The Ocean Series~ Clouds and Crashing Waves

The clouds roll in slowly and are overhead before you even know the darkness has descended.  You can feel the weight of the wave as it crashes upon you at the shore.  It is about to take you under.

Depression and Anxiety are very real.  This weekend I experienced one of the most frightening times of my life.  I had a full-blown panic attack.  I actually thought I was having a heart attack, due to my parents’ heart histories. Panic attacks can mimic the symptoms of heart attacks, so for the first time in 30 years, I visited the ER.

Due to a change from a name brand to its generic substitution, the chemical imbalance was not being controlled. I have been a mess.  Maybe my honesty will help someone.

 Even though I was not thinking clearly, I could feel the presence of my Savior.  He never left my side in my fear.  He gave me an inner peace that was present even as my ability to speak clearly was not.  I was going to be okay in one way or another.

God loves me, chemical imbalances and all.  And He loves you too! I will be back to my regular self soon. Well “regular” may be subjective..lol! 

Friend, don’t be afraid to ask for help. When I am in this state of incorrect medication, I get very anxious, forgetful and apologize for everything.  AND I feel like I have failed everyone, including God.  But that is not true!  It is a lie as is the thought that I am crazy! 

Get the help you need.  And don’t let those clouds overwhelm you…for the sun will break through and you will be able to dip your toes safely in the water without the fear of a crashing wave soon.

~The Ocean Series~ Sunrise, Sunset

 

 Sunrise?  Sunset?

What do you think of when you see these two words? And yes, for the elder crowd, I hear a song. But do you have a favorite?

Personally, I never have “favorites”  😉 , so I enjoy them both equally. The colors are amazing. The freshness that seems to accompany both is sometimes palatable. And if there are birds flying….let’s just say that makes a delightful picture to gaze at when you are still waiting for spring to arrive. Continue reading

~The Ocean Series~ Depth, Width, Height, Length

 

We look out to the ocean, but we cannot see the ocean depth, width, height or length.  There is a mystery about it that we just cannot seem to figure out from observation.

Look at the definitions of  deep, wide, high, and long as Webster’s defines:  Continue reading
