“For God has not give us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of sound mind.”
-2 Timothy 1:7
When you go through a series of crappy events, fear can become habitual. Even when your circumstances improve you find that you aren’t enjoying it because you are busy waiting for the rug to get pulled out from under you. Right now I’m working on shaking off that sticky fear and getting back to the business of living in the moment, present and grateful and full of hope.
Sunshine helps, and rest, and, of course, God’s word, which has a wonderful way of turning the dial on your upside-down world and shifting everything back into its proper place.
I think remembering the good times helps too. I’ve been wearing the perfume Ross got me as a wedding gift, which brings back vivid memories of our honeymoon in Los Cabos with the desert at our back and the ocean before us, a time and a place with no fear.
