Ya ever feel like this?

Have you ever felt like this? This driftwood dude* I met on the beach just reminds me of how I feel this morning. I suppose we can't completely avoid times when we feel like this?

But I try to remind myself, things to refocus my attention in a direction to help me stop feeling this way. After all, even this guy is on the beach. The beach is good. That's a start. Then, he IS driftwood. Driftwood after all, is cool. So he has good things to think about.

I'm working on finding my good things to think about. Trying to also fight the bad things. Sometimes it is a back and forth thing. But God helps me sort through it. In the end, he's got me covered.

*If this makes no sense about a driftwood dude in the picture, then see previous post about "I see things". The things I see often turn into artwork, but he was too heavy to bring home. :)

For a name... I think Herbert. I didn't notice the upside down version of him. That's cool too. He was a pretty heavy guy, but that was early on in my driftwood collecting days. Nowadays, I would have picked him up, put him in a backpack and made a special trip back to my car for him. :)

Too bad you couldn't bring him home. He seems upside down to me. I'd mount him on a post and put a coat of shine on him, then people could rub his head for good luck... He'd need a catchy name....
