March Sadness

For awhile my bracket this year in the March Madness ESPN Tournament was ranked high. I was getting so many right. Now it looks like I am on the downhill… I guess everyone is though.

Lately I have just felt sad. Not because I picked SF Austin to beat Florida and they didn’t even make it to the Sweet Sixteen, but I have just felt sad for lots of reasons. My heart has been shedding tears all winter and now it feels like crying.

Winter has been beating me up. Not only has winter hit me hard, it still not over. Last night I was outside watching pigs load into a trailer and I thought “Why is it so cold out, its practically spring.” Turns out its supposed to snow today or tomorrow. It’s just depressing.

There just seems to be a countless list that has been building of things that have not gone my way. I tell God everyday, “Help me out … just a little bit.” I know he hears me. Sometimes knowing is enough, but I still feel like I am bound to break.

This March I have been really busy. Lots of work to do and very little time. It does keep me distracted from the sadness hovering over me, but I really hope this fog clears up soon and a brighter day warms and drys my heart.

Every once in awhile I know you feel sad too. If you live in NW Ohio I bet we are in the same boat. In all of our sadness let us not forget how blessed we are. Counting our blessings maybe some cliche way of getting through tough times, but lately Gods gifts and blessings seem to be all I have got going for me.

Isaiah 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

God is my crutch today. I woke up at 3:30 a.m. and have just been floating around not able to sleep.

So if you feel sad just remember. Summer is on its way. God won’t let us down. I know it.
