"You smell nice." Kathryn said.

"Thanks. I took a bath."

She laughs.

"Glad you're making jokes. I was worried about you"

She says this because this last year has been a near death experience for me.

Thou shalt not fear what they fear, God says. But I did. I feared the unknown, I feared venturing out on my own, not having the confidence in thinking I could make it alone, well not really alone, with God. I feared economic loss. All those things came anyway. "That which I fear comes upon me." says Isaiah.

Then the slump and I stayed in bed all day, didn't eat, didn't shower. Smelled. Died inside.

One day I prayed for a breakthrough, a resurrection, because God is in the resurrection business. And it came. I got a job, called my friends, got back into life. I even showered and put on some Jergen's Almond Joy Lotion.

Then, I called Kathryn and asked her to meet me for lunch at Ensalada's.

I get there around 11:50 AM and a couple of minutes later see Kathryn drive up in her red Toyota, get out of the car and come up and hug me.

"You smell good."

"Thanks. I took a bath."

Wow! I'd sure like to see this expanded--what caused your depression, specifically how God brought you out of it. You've tantalized us with this brief story--more, please!
