This strip originally appeared on Oct. 13, 1960. God had it run in today’s paper so that I could see it – I just know it!
How often do I obtain joy in my depression? Now that may sound like a silly question, but give it a moment’s thought. Isn’t every “pity party” I host or attend just that? My attempt to have joy in my depression? Do I wear my pain on my sleeve? Do I play the “victim card”?
I can’t answer for you, but for me the answer is a resounding “YES!” Not only have I done that, but I’ve done that recently. Don’t make me smile, don’t lighten my load…. can’t you SEE I’m depressed? Geez!!
So today I am resolved. I am resolved to stand straight, shoulders and head up, with eyes facing forward. Because Charlie Brown actually has this one right, and I’m the blockhead!
God is good, and I praise Him that He allows me to live in the overspill of His grace and goodness.
