Grey Skies and Grey Days

The week has been busy, hard and full of all sorts of nonsense. Sickness, birth, sleeplessness, big picture questions, minor distractions.  A lot of grey.

This is a bit of colour….a fun mat made up of felted wool balls that I spied at Lark quite sometime ago. Lovely.

Looking for other sunshine to come my way….

Rain, haze and no sunshine

Today it is grey…… from the cold grey of the asphalt across at the school, to the concrete buildings and the sullen sky. The silhouette of the trees, bare and leafless.

Our house is still full of the chaos of a morning when all 6 of us leave the house early. The fog of unmade beds, clothing strewn across the floors, toys and papers, an unwiped table and the remnant of breakfast.

We need colour and calm.

We need spring to come.

We need new life and a new day.

Rise Up – Third Day – Wherever you are 2005
Well, I was there when you were torn apart
Now a piece of you is gone
Somehow you wish that you could only find
A little strength to carry on
You’ve tried so hard to make it on your own
That your heart has come undone
So I am here to prove that I alone
Have the power to overcome
Don’t let your heart be troubled
This world will never keep you down
It will never keep you down
So rise up, my friend
No, this will never be the end
So rise up, my friend
And live again I didn’t want you to feel this way
It’s not what life was meant to be
And so for you, my friend, I’ll take your shame
You can give it all to me
‘Cause you’ve wrestled demons every day
And they’ve dragged you to your knees
But in your weakness you will learn to find
That I will always be your strength
In life or in death
Through joy or regret
And all of the secret things you have done
No matter what comes, my friend
Nothing can keep you from the love of God
