Under the weather...

Under the weather...

What does that mean? Under the weather…

I am feeling icky today, yesterday too. No real signs of illness, no fever, just ick. Tired and sluggish, and it hasn’t been humid or very hot the last two days, in fact it has been gloriously beautiful. I just don’t feel good. So what is up now, I ask?

So I ask, further. Is this an attempt at staying depressed? Is it an after effect of the lastest bout with depression? Oh! I demand to feel well! I claim my health in the name of Jesus, and walk in the healing that was provided at the cross. I will feel better and better, as this day I have been given progresses. My work day will go smoothly and quickly, and I will have a time of rest before church this evening. I am well in my Lord today. In the Mighty Name of Jesus.

So how do I make this post productive, as if prayer is not productive. I’ll check out the word depression. Any thing that has a name must bow to the Almighty Name of Jesus Christ.

From my favorite online dictionary: Merriam-Webster Online:

Main Entry:
\di-ˈpre-shən, dē-\
14th century
1 a: the angular distance of a celestial object below the horizon b: the size of an angle of depression2: an act of depressing or a state of being depressed: as a: a pressing down : lowering b (1): a state of feeling sad : dejection (2): a psychoneurotic or psychotic disorder marked especially by sadness, inactivity, difficulty in thinking and concentration, a significant increase or decrease in appetite and time spent sleeping, feelings of dejection and hopelessness, and sometimes suicidal tendencies c (1): a reduction in activity, amount, quality, or force (2): a lowering of vitality or functional activity 3: a depressed place or part : hollow4: low 1b5: a period of low general economic activity marked especially by rising levels of unemployment
A pressing down  – that is descriptive. That is how I feel, pressed down, like something heavy is on my shoulders. I also see references that align themselves with the concept of “under the weather”.
I find these word studies interesting and fun.
When I was a kid my mother would not tell us the spellings or meanings of words. She would require that we look them up. As we got older, and I got more mouthy, I would challenge my mother about the meanings of words. I called the event Word Wars…I learned a lot, although I was hardly correct in my challenges.
There is an interesting memory of my childhood that isn’t a bad one. Cool.
Well everyone, thanks for enduring this little blog entry.
Enjoy this Glorious Day…Blessings.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
