Too depressed to post?

I pride myself in having a new post every Monday morning. (It posts at 12 am for my friends to the east.)

This week I’ve been battling severe depression. It may be that a mega-church pastor committed suicide. I didn’t see grandkids last week. (We made up for it with a swim party yesterday!) I got a royalty check for $13.75. I was working on my small group, Intimacy with Christ: Beyond Information and Involvement, which launches tomorrow. (The enemy is not at all happy with it!) Saturday was particularly bad, but then at 6 pm I remembered I had taken my two meds for it.

That’s probably too much information, but I wanted to explain the delay and let you know if you’re having a rough Monday, you’re not alone. So, here are some of my favorite links in dealing with downtimes:

Are you listening to Goliath or God?
Feeling inadequate, ill-equipped, in the dark?
Fifty praises between bed and bathroom
Finding still waters in the storm: The Book of Joe
From bad to worse to . . . astonishing
“I’m a mess. You’re a mess.”
My life as a human tether ball
You may be depressed if . . .

    Did you say you forgot to take your meds? I wonder too if it is the slight changes in weather from summer to fall. I have always struggled even as a child. Medicine helps but it’s still an awful feeling even though my mind knows there is no reason at all for it.
