Rainy days and Mondays…

bald-eagle-wallpapers-flightSome Monday mornings are harder than others…sometimes we feel too tired or downhearted to face the day. After pulling my back and spending a weekend trying to rest (which is quite difficult for me, always with so much to do),  I woke up feeling this way, and the loss of an hour of sleep (daylight savings time) and dreary winter scenery outside – bare trees, dark gray sky and a steady rain falling – didn’t help.  I believe it’s times like these we especially need to turn to God and ask for his strength. I took a few minutes to do that…and I then felt a renewed energy and a small voice said, “go, get to work, it will all be ok.” So for all of you out there who may be feeling downtrodden today, I offer you the song “We Will Rise Again” written by David Haas (just click on photo to hear it) that always brings me to joyful tears with beautiful lyrics taken from Isaiah 40:1-31: “Like a shepherd I will feed you; I will gather you with care. I will lead you and hold you close to my heart.  I am strength to the weary; to the weak I am new life. Though the young may grow weary, I will be their hope.  (Refrain) We will run and not grow weary, for our God will be our strength, and we will fly like the eagle, we will rise again. Lift up your eyes, and see who made the stars. I lead you, and I know you, I call you each by name. Fear not, I am with you; I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; uphold you with my hand.” No matter what I hope you have a blessed day!
