Tuesday Morning Praying

I've committed to praying specifically over a period of time for some friends who are in the midst of some pretty challenging circumstances right now. That period of time is drawing to a close soon, but for the next few days, that is where my thoughts will largely be.

In the meantime, I've been reading Anne Jackson's blog for a little while now, and really appreciating. I was delighted this morning to read her post on beginning treatment for bipolar disorder. A close relative of mine suffers from bipolar disorder, and because of lifestyle choices and addictions, is usually off of his medications, and often living on the streets. I've read through some of Anne's archived posts about depression and as someone who suffered from depression for many years found them to be a lovely balm for a soul that has often hesitated to expose those parts of my journey because of the stigma attached to them.

So, go read Anne's blog today! And come back here then, because (as I said yesterday), I will be eventually posting more substantive posts again!
