A conversation with my flatmate yesterday:
Me: I feel so down at the moment. I really believe in that thing, what it’s called, the thing when the weather changes?
Me: *Stare blankly for a second* Oh yes, sad. What does it stand for again?
Flatmate: Dunno. Just sad.
Both stare out the window. Cat stares at us.
What a pathetic conversation! Who else is feeling like this right now? I usually get this in October, which is the month I hate, but I think because the weather has been fairly mild, it’s only just hitting me now.
My wonderful friend, Mary, prayed for me yesterday and today and I really felt her prayers boosting me all day today. I thought today was going to be horrible (for no special reason), but it was alright and alright is good enough for me.
My flatmate was telling me yesterday about a friend she has who has had a bit of a rough life, and she would be on her own at Christmas, were it not for my flatmate and her boyfriend who will go to her house on Christmas day. That is so sad. No wonder so many people kill themselves around this time of year.
I’m going to make a special effort to pray for people who feel ‘down’ at the moment, because it can take over if you’re not careful. Will you do the same?
