Good Days, Bad Days

Today is one of the bad days. Good days, bad days. This mantra has gotten us through the last eighteen months. One day you feel better, but if you cling to it, if you try to hold on to it, then the next time a bad day comes around it feels much much worse.

The key is detachment, detachment from the good days as well as the bad days. Something I am still working on. I remind myself that all feelings are temporary, and this helps me through. We watched a film about a young preacher dying of Luekemia. He said everyone wants to walk with God in the mountains, but it is quite another thing to walk with God in the valley.

So this is the challenge, to have faith, to be peaceful, to remember the goodness in the world on the good days and on the bad days.
