"Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ"
(1 Corinthians 15:57).
Shopping... chocolate... candy... pills...alcoholic beverages...food...etc. These may seem like they work to boost one's mood, but I beg to differ. While moping in my chair, I felt God telling me to "give thanks, give thanks, give thanks". I rose from my chair to get my camera and find something to take a picture of that I am thankful for. Indeed, watching our youngest play with his sister's things in her room and watching them getting along so well for a surprisingly prolonged period of time was something to give thanks for. Thank-you, God for my many blessings, and forgive me when I fail so often to recognize them.
