Hello, friends. A bit of honesty here. Today is just…gray. And I admit I just feel it. I figure if there were times King David had to do this, I have to allow myself to have these times, too…
Where did the sun go?
Wonders the mind sliding down slow
Into the deepness of the gathering gloom.
Clouds draw overhead tight
Yet spread out fat,
Making day seem the gray nearest night
And the patch of earth I’m on dull and flat.
And here we are again it seems…
Fall crawls again
And the chill sets in.
I should be admiring the skinned knee trees,
Or, at least, the changing hues of the maple leaves.
But, today, Lord help me, I’m tired.
Almost wholly uninspired.
Want to tell everyone about the joy that yet resides
Further on to the core inside.
Yet the chore of living today
Has got my doldrums most on display,
My joints aching and all reason for laughter going astray…
Welcome to the nagging scratch
Of a depressive sort of day,
Oppressive in its tap-you-on-the-back-of-the-noggin way.
Ick. Yet, somehow, I know I will yet catch
Some bit of a lighter sunset ray
When I sit down and recall
The strength that summons itself
When I take it all
To my Father’s throne
And remind myself
No, Marisa, really and truly-you are not alone…
Thanks for reading, dear friends! Hugs and prayers! ❤
