A fruit of the spirit is faithfulness.
Faithfulness: The quality of being faithful.
Faithful: Loyal, constant, steadfast.
Three years ago I was getting ready to go into my last of 6 rounds of chemo for lymphoma. Every round required me to stay in the hospital for five days while I received round the clock chemicals into my veins.
My story is just my story.
“Because what non-believers fail to understand is that calling a dream “crazy” is not an insult, it’s a compliment.”
“So don’t ask if your dreams are crazy. Ask if they are crazy enough.”
-quote from recent Nike commercial, as recited by Colin Kaepernick
It’s been almost a month since I started my daily dose of Lexapro. It is serving its purpose. I have been emotionally flat. My mind is very little distracted by deep, dark rabbit holes of persistent thoughts of despair.
However, side effect, I’m not inclined to write. I wondered if the medication is causing a damper on the creative part of my brain.
Today on my run I thought of it this way….the medication is relieving me of despair. That is what writing does…it relieves me of despair. So since the medication is helping with that, I don’t need to go to writing….for now.
So many great artists, musicians, athletes, etc, struggle with despair. Perhaps their excellence is a coping mechanism.
I have a wonderful post to make about FAITHFULNESS. I see this fruit of the spirit budding in some vibrant ways in my life right now. I’m just not in a mood to put it into words.
But I didn’t want you all to forget about me…so I’m posting tonight.
Thanks for hanging in with me. I love you!
