Excuse me for posting so many photos today, but since I am so blue, I just couldn't decide which to leave out. So I put them all in. The bible doesn't seem to use the word depression, instead it uses downcast. It even suggests there are benefits to being sad, which I would not disagree with. After all, how can we know how to empathize with and comfort others if we have not needed it ourselves at some point? So as these pictures and Ecclesiastes testify, being blue can be a good thing.
"Crying is better than laughing. It blotches the face but it scours the heart. Sages invest themselves in hurt and grieving. Fools waste their lives in fun and games." Ecc. 7:3,4
