Are you SAD?
Linda Goodnight here:
I heard a news report tonight on Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). If you're not familiar, SAD is depression and lethargy brought on by the lack of sunshine. Naturally, winter is a prime time for SAD. And this winter in Oklahoma has been especially hard, dark, and dreary, so more Okies are feeling SAD and dreaming of the sun.
That got me to thinking as I am particularly fond of spiritual parallels. If we humans are SAD without the sun, just think how sad we would be without The Son. Without His light in our lives, we would have real reason to be sad and depressed.
On another note, my husband jokingly claims that humans were meant to hybernate, and that explains the overwhelming desire to lay on the couch and eat all winter. Well, that explains it-wisdom from the Goodnight Couch--er--Ranch.
So, do any of you battle SAD? How do you cope?
