290. The Greyness of Depression

grey day

It was a grey, windy, cold day last Friday as I looked out my den window. Depression is like that. I recall when I was in major depression that my mind was a grey fog of confusion, battered by strong winds of mental anguish, and drenched by a damp coldness that affected not only my mind but also my body.

But there was hope even then, for the sun was still above the bad weather waiting to break through, and the Son was waiting for the right hour to shine into my soul with the calmness and warmth of a still summer day. And one day He did just that, and I am calm and warm yet today.

About Patrick Day

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.
