Surfacing from deep water

Coming out of a depression is like surfacing from deep water after holding your breath too long. Sometimes what brings me to the surface is major change, spiritual change, a sea-change.

But doth suffer a sea-change

Into something rich and strange - The Tempest, Shakespeare

Coming to the surface spluttering and gasping I see the world in a whole bright, new light. Where will this new day bring me? I smile and am filled with a glowing warmth. The past drips off my shoulders as I pull myself up to shore.

What has God got in store for me today? Something rich and strange, to be sure.

Blessed be!
