Should I blog when I have such a bad headache? Probably not.
The fog outside my kitchen window reflects my current mood quite perfectly today.
Should I blog when I am in such a mood? Probably not.
But then...I was reminded to praise Him. Should I praise Him while feeling so down?
Should I blog about it? How can I not blog about it...
God is the same no matter how we feel. We are to praise Him as long as we are able to!
If I only share my good days, then people might think I am only praising my Jesus when things are going well, and what would that say about my Christian walk?

Well, since the hound dog finally decided to trade in his sing time for an afternoon nap, and it is quiet once again. I think I will take a nap too. ~God Bless~
Rom 5:3-5 ... but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
