Entry: "hmm.. sly ass devil"

After struggling with whatever was wearing me down for the past week, I didn't know whether it was a physical, mental, or spiritual battle I was dealing with. Actually it was more than likely a combination of all three. It felt like getting sick was "trying" to happen to me...it just seemed as if there was a little something going on in the background that was actually making me feel ill with the fever action going on at night, and the upset tummy and resulting mental funk during the day. That was the physical side of what I felt...But I wasn't quite..."sick". Not the sick as in take off from work sick, perhaps more like just being out-of-sync with everything. Not feeling creative, getting all hyper over everyday issues, perhaps taking things a bit too personal here and there in a few conversations...Thats the mental funk part of it, the out-of-rythm'ing that was sitting on me...And we all know ole sly-axe Satan is always instigating stuff, trying to work on a brothers mind, trying to make him trip perhaps...sly ass devil...but I aint gone have it! Get on off ya boy this morning, I gots work to do. It's a good day to be Greggy! Happy Friday pardners! I'ts colder than a well you know what ot there but I'm feeling good to go inside....Catch y'all in a few, but now it's off to the salt mines....

Yep, it's inevitable that we get in a funk sometimes. I HATE it, but sometimes it just happens & you can't quite figure it out. Glad to hear that you're fighting the funk though. As Randy Jackson would say "You da' Bomb, Dogg!! So the evil spirits better BACK OFF!! angry, grr

Thanks France, how have your travels been? I'm feeling a lot brighter now, however, my blogging skills have alll but vanished for the moment. Until I can articulate a note-worthy post on my part, I'll just stay in the flow with everyone else...thanks for stopping in on me and leaving a cyber-hug, always appreciate your vibe my friend! Take care...greggy

Colder than a what? Go ahead, say it. Free yourself, G Man. LOL

Hehehe...well Yolanda, since Good Greggy and not Bad Greggy is in full control of any verbal outbursts over here, the chances of that happening are about as good as a %&*@# in *&#@$+~@#!! Let's just say it's so cold even the dogs don't bark at you no more if you suddenly startle one...it's too cold...greggy

here it is...For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places.

Thanks again, you found it before I did since I went searching...Thats an interesting thought too, since a few weeks ago I had a rather 'disturbing" dream where I felt like I was actually fighting with a demon who was trying to choke me...needless to say I awoke quite agitated...Thanks again brotherman...greggy

Whattup Greg? Sorry to hear that you've been feeling a little piqued as of late. Those kind of weeks happen brotha. Instead of just a "I'm out of it today", you go through a whole 7 day period (or something close to it)of feeling that way.

Maybe with the weekend, you can get that much deserved rest, and revamp, and recharge the batteries for the upcoming week. Not to mention, knocking that lil Lucifer cat off of ya shoulder. Cya at the salt mines my man.

Big Dawg...I think we all hit that bump in the road where we just lose our stride for a moment, get sort of knocked off course for a second or lose our momentum. Perhaps thats all this was. I hate getting that way too, especially since I need to draw, to create....It's not that I want it, I NEEEED it. When I can't flow, I can't think, I'm sure you can relate to that, yes? Anywayz, the weekend did wonders, I'm trying to let loose something as we speak...

p.s...Lucifer a doomed individual already, and he knows it! :o) Peace brother....greg

I have felt the same way for a longer period of time Greggy - physically, mentally and spiritually drained. Hopefully we'll both get over this funk and crud VERY soon. Have an awesome weekend, you positive soul you! smile

Thank you so very much Cheryl, you have always been such the good friend for me...Indeed it has seemed rather hectic in all aspects of my life recently, and for that I can blame no one except myself when it all boils down to it. With the right perspective and cool peeps like you in sight, all is well indeed. I'm sure I will be over this "episode" in a moment, after all, life goes on, and on....Thanks again friend!...greggy

Wassup Greggy, glad to hear your doing better. I've been feeling down alittle lately (with school and all), but I'm doing alright now I guess. Well I'll talk to you again soon. And have a good weekend!

Well Hello there Chandra! Long time no hear from, young lady! How have you been? It really must be a spirit of despair and discontent settling on my peoples, yes we must remain even more strengthened by what we know is true....So very nice to hear from you, take care and have a good week coming, ok?....greggy
