Do what you can…

Depression strangled me this morning.  The bombings in Syria, I felt powerless about it.  There was little, if anything I could do about them except pray for peace, for Syria, and for America.

I started to realized that my self-will was taking over again.  I wanted things my own way.  I wanted the bombings and the war to stop.\

In case, this behavior happens too often.  I want things when I want them and how I want them.  I want to eat when I want to eat–forget whether or not I’ve eaten enough to sustain me for the day.  Even forget I’m even hungry.

I also remember this quote my first stepfather often said, “Do what you can.  Suffer what you must.”  I need to remember that.
