I was walking past our kitchen glass siding doors this morning when this caught my eye. Any guesses as to what I photographed? Thanks for stopping by.
the sad sad shadows
so i think that we should sing about the sad sad shadows why do i keep remembering their darkened glance it seems that they want to dance into the story and at any moment the sad sad shadows fall on me so about those sad sad shadows inside those weathered picture frames a broken promise here something undone there framed fractures and failures each one calls my name and the struggle starts again with one word oh the shadow of shame falls on me so listen sad sad shadows i remembered today that you don’t have to stay you’re not the whole story Light and Glory can rewrite your songs mend all the wrongs and scatter the darkness not just for a moment but for eternity all these parts of me will be restored once more oh sad sad shadow the final say will not be yours the Light will end the night and all the sad sad shadows will go away and there will be only Light
so welcome to your new day
so welcome to your new day time to tell your story time to give yourself away let go of the worry and why so much hurry time to slow down what story will you tell this day so welcome to your new day don’t compare and don’t stare at all the insta-images that sometimes just won’t dare to be real and to say i’m who i am occasionally stumbling always broken anxiety has stolen some joy but i’m who i am loved by God an image bearer of my Creator i am here on this new day so see the Light who makes wrongs right and mends our hurting souls He lifts our heads shows us the way each time we go astray He forgives welcome to your new day let go of that worry don’t hurry past the Light on this new day
all we see
it’s not going to be okay at least not in the way we want it to be okay won’t do today longing for so much more it’s not going to be okay at least not in the way we want it to be the sorrow stays my heart is sure there is a place where tears will end okay then when will that day be it’s not going to be okay at least not in the way we want it to be there’s a promise for you and for me surrender will be all on our knees finally light will be all we see light will be all we see
