If I get a little sense of ugliness
Of resentment, longing for different, for better…
Mad about why them, not me.
You can be sure, I’ll be faced with opportunity to redeem
All the ugly.
Run into someone, somehow acquainted with my ugly.
You can be sure of it.
I’ll be humbled and graciously welcome their joy in us crossing paths.
Because, I’ll see the lesson.
I’ll notice the providence.
And to be sure, just as sure, I’ll walk at day’s end with extra time thanks to Spring.
Frustrated over buffered songs sought to comfort
I’ll round the corner.
Climb the hill.
Song begins; continues, meets every longing.
Speaks what I long to hear.
To tell another.
I can count
on it…walking at day’s end and being reminded of grace.
Listening to Third Day…”When the Rain Comes” and wondering if it’s too much like a love song.
To send to someone having a hard day.
Sending anyway, saying you can count on me.
