Beating the Blues (Continued)

A friend was talking to me about how she equips her depressed clients with an armoury of tools to strengthen them against the blues. Since she obviously can't do the same for me (I'm a friend, not a client), I have to do it myself. So here are today's contributions. Reasons not to be miserable:

1     There's no getting away from God anyway, for "You did not choose me, but I chose you." (John 15.16)
2     In view of our mortality, every day could be my last. And if it's possible I might die today, I'd much rather my last day on earth was a happy one than a miserable one.

Come to think of it, you'd have to be in a fairly odd state of mind to find these thoughts encouraging ...

Well it helped me that morning - but maybe I'm just strange!
