"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."

I believe in God.

Last night I was feeling really good, so I let myself act much more like a normal person than I should have. I criss-crossed a room three or four times and had short conversations standing up. I do not feel good anymore, and it's just not fair!

On the plus side, I ran into a friend from last year while riding a bus today. Always nice!

This is a very hard road to walk, but ultimately I believe that God is good to me, giving me little good things that, while not quite balancing out the bad, make it a little bit easier to bear.

Besides, to quote Steven Curtis Chapman (yes, I know I have used this quote before): "God is God, and I am not; I can only see a part of the picture he's painting."

May my picture include beauty from which I can draw strength.

About Me

My photo
I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
