“A trifle consoles us, for a trifle distresses us.”
I am feeling very human tonight. My mind is caught up, spinning too fast for me to even try to stop it. I haven’t had this problem in some time. This blog entry has even been started and deleted three times.
I feel silly when I think of how easy it is to get me riled up. And how easy it is to bring me back down again.
It is not much different for most of us.
We scurry about, our every little victory bringing us the utmost joy and our every little defeat crushing us lower than we feel we’ve ever been.
We are, as a species, the most bipolar creatures I’ve ever even heard of.
The difference is that we have a handhold to latch on to, to keep us from being dragged along in this world against our will.
I am not going to even try to understand why I am letting this get to me. And I am truly dreading the moment I find out just exactly what little thing will bring me out of it.
I will concentrate for the time being on the fact that there is only one true constant in my life. He isn’t like us, letting ourselves be ruled by what a political poll says on the news, or what someone said to someone else about someone else’s momma.
He is unfliching.
He is unchanging.
And I ,for one, am grateful for His stability in my life and the lifeboat He has become in trying times.
We should all stop and thank Him tonight, if we weren’t already.
