Matters of the Heart

May the Lord keep watch between you and me when we are away from each other.
Genesis 31:49

I've been "out" for awhile. Just taking some time to reflect as I had another birthday and got lost in a funk of depression.  It happens.  I just wanted to "stop" everything, including blogging.  I need to learn something new, perhaps an exercise that will allow me to focus, center and calm down! And learn to breath. And not forget to exhale.

I got a BD card from a dear friend in Ohio. Just before Christmas she learned she had breast cancer. We talked of anger and I suggested journaling to her. That's what I try to do, but sometimes it is so venomous and just have to put it down and, like with the blogging, put it away for awhile. 

That's all for now, just snippets,


  1. Oh Tamara I've felt this very same way all of January! I had a good day here and there but mostly have been very down. There are other bloggers out there that have felt the same way. I did a post a while back about it, I do believe a lot has to do with Lack of sunshine. At least here.
    We've had very little.
    I wish you a Happy belated Birthday and brighter days to come. Just keep on praying! Love Di ♥

  2. Belated Happy Birthday to you, my friend...
    I hug you and pray that you have a restful week.

  3. You ladies are wonderful.

    Di - Sometimes I feel as if "I'm the only one" who suffers with this. It is especially disconcerting living in sunny Arizona where the ground table water contains natural amounts of lithium - used to treat depression! Who knew?

    As always, hugz to you Jackie (and Di, too).
