Have The Blues?

"It is surprising how strong we become 
under the pressure of 'the blues' 
when we cling to God more tightly than ever, 
and love Him in spite of the dark clouds that encircle us."  

(from In Love With The Divine Outcast, compiled by A Religious, Pelligrini, Australia, 1934, pp. 170-171)

  1. This touched my spirit....loving God when it is difficult to, well, to just love. Thanks Nancy.

  2. Nancy,

    I hate feeling blue. Yes, those times are opportunities to cling to God and reaffirm our love. Thanks for the reminder!

    1. I find that during the blues, it's harder than ever to cling to God. I'm so thankful at such times that "love is a decision." !

  3. This is beautiful and just what I need to read right now. Thank you, Nancy :)

  4. What a gorgeous umbrella! And the details of her hands are exquisite! Thank you Nancy for the encouraging passage as well...God Bless.
