31-derful Options

Leaving the psychiatrist's office with a new game plan (or rather the same one that I will follow more closely this time), Reid and I were early arrivals at Allie's bus stop. I decided to spring for a cookie, cinnamon roll, and iced mocha at the neighborhood bakery there. On familiar turf with the rarity of time to spare, the cloud lifted.

A song lyric rang through my's gonna be alright....

"Reid, who sings that song? It's gonna be...," I asked the master dj. Quicker than a Shazam app, he spouted back, "Sara Groves! It's on Add to the Beauty," then proceeded to sing the rest of the album. Just like Toucan Sam, he always knows.

Hope springs eternal. As the good doc offered, "If this doesn't work, I have 31 others we can try." Hmmm...that brings to mind another foundational hymn to bear in mind:

Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness.
I dare not trust in (doctors or meds),
But wholly lean on Jesus' name.

Sing it with me now

On Christ the solid Rock I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.


  1. Thanks. I am excited about your hope, tickled by Reid's awesome connection to music, and grateful for your willingness to allow God to work through you and speak to others through this blog....Sarah Groves touched my heart today - God is so powerful.

  2. Thank you for this.
