One of "those" days...

Do y’all ever have one of “those” days? I woke up feeling great, but as the day progressed, I just grew more and more, well, kind of depressed. It’s been bright and sunny today and usually I get kind of down on cloudy days. Maybe I’m starting to come down with something? Hmmmm….

Whenever I have a day like this, there are some things I know to do:
1) Drink more water!!! If I’m coming down with something, water is the key ingredient needed to hydrate my body and help fight off any germs that may be in my system.
2) Go to bed at a decent hour!!! I am VERY guilty of staying up too late. Sigh. Mr. U can stay up pretty late but that doesn’t mean that I have to stay up with him. I need to head to bed but ESPECIALLY when I’m not feeling quite like myself. It is VERY important to get AT LEAST 8 hours of sleep each night and also to go to bed at a decent hour.
3) Eat raw garlic!!! Yes, I am bringing that up again. Raw garlic is a wonderful “medicine” that the Lord created for helping to fight off germs. (Thank you, Lord, for making it taste good, too!!!)
4) Get in The Word!!!! OH YES!!! This is most important of all!!! Time with the Lord can lift your weary soul and get your eyes off yourself and onto Him! Read! Read! Read!!! Hide His Word in your heart. Drink deeply of His Truth. Jesus is the Living Water, the Bread of Life, the Light of the World. All things were created by Him and through Him. Why NOT go to Him? He made us for His glory and His purposes and He can most certainly make one of “those” days into a glorious day when our hearts and minds are set on Him!!!

So… how have YOU been feeling today?

Mrs U ~ so sorry that you're not feeling well today. I liked your list of suggestions of what to do on days like that...well, except for the raw garlic one! I'd also like to add: pick up a hymnal and sing/hum some of your favorite hymns. That always helps to get my mind back on the Lord.

Oh, Mrs. U, if I lived around the corner with from you I would invite you over for a nice cup of tea and chat:) I think we all have these "down" days occasionally. I find that on those "dark dreary" days I have a tendency to feel "down in the dumps" and not have much motivation to do the things I should. When the weather in the winter is gloomy I try to have a lot of bright lights on around me to try and simulate the lack of outdoor brightness. Another thing that I find that helps me is PUT ON SOME JAZZY, PEPPY music!! It almost always makes me feel better:) Sending hugs all the way from Virginia!!

Oh Susan!! I wish both you AND Deb lived around the corner!! We could chat, sip tea and SING!!!!

Seriously, Deb, as soon as I read your comment, the Lord quickly put a song in my heart! It's the same song that always seems to find its way there- Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!! Sweetest name I know!! Fills my every longing, keeps me singing as I go!! LOVE LOVE LOVE that song!!

Thanks y'all!!

Mrs. U

Hey Mrs U :)
I also use raw garlic for our family i chop it into bit size peices and we eat it like a tablet with Juice--Your readers might also like to know that it is excellent to put garlic oil into the ears as soon as there is a sign of an ear infection --it has killed off many infections in my children before they have gotten bad.
