Love Strikes Back at Depression- With Little Acts of Kindness and Prayer. Learn to LISTEN, be SILENT & ENLIST help

Today’s act of kindness is to LISTEN.  From this desire to listen must come the ability to be SILENT.  You cannot listen to the other person if you talk too.  You will find that when someone who is depressed wants to open up, it can be like a tap has just been opened.  You can ENLIST your inner strength to help you to be quiet and listen.  The temptation is there to try and correct things said that differ from your memory or perspective of them.

At a later time when reflecting on all that you have heard, you can then enlist your wisdom as to what help you need to access.  It is an act to LISTEN, your SILENT prayer or meditation can ENLIST resources and strength you didn’t realise you had.

Psalm 143:1 ” Lord hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy, in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief.”

Oops something has gone right- An amazing 1st year with WordPress

It has truly been an amazing year of writing, blogging, having fun, sharing, entertaining and making new friends.  I have thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a lot as well.  Just before I retired I had an episode of ill health, the only way forward was to get strengthened in Christ, get good nutrition and exercise going for total recovery and make each day special.  I wasn’t doing much in way of writing and from feedback of what i wrote was I needed to improve.  Then I found WordPress, a platform that gave me a boost of energy to further develop myself and the things I want to do.  I owe a lot to sharing with you and learning from you, I have written more, got involved in more activities and initiated my personal projects to fruition than I ever did.  I am glad I am able to write this without my laptop going, “Oops, something has gone wrong.” because of storage problems   I have been trying to catch up with liking and commenting on your blog posts, on writing the Daily Prompt and by God’s Grace one day hope to bring back ‘Top of the Elevenses/Brunch’.

Thanks to you all, from my first Follower to the most recent one, to all at Admin and Blogging Fundamentals, to Mr Ngobesing Romanus and all at Success Inspirers’ World, Viewers and Readers.  There are so many names to mention and I don’t want to miss any, so just believe I send you my love and thanks too.

Blessings of Palm Sunday to you all, His love is for everyone of us because we are all SPECIAL.
