Pray for grace

I feel horrible today,one of the little germ factories I coach got me pretty sick this weekend.Why any parent would want their kid outside in the snow when they're sick is beyond me.

The silver lining I suppose is that I spent all day in bed 'cleansing'.Not to mention I had plenty of blog-tacular material to rummage through.Which brings us to this post.

As I was collecting my thoughts on some shady topics,wanting to spew my views with a certain venom,when I heard a chorus in my headphones that just seemed to resonate with me enough to make me take a deep breath.Here's hoping these lyrics find you all well.

PRAY FOR GRACE

Why must I feel like this today?
I'm a soldier,but afraid
sometimes to face the things that may
block the sun from shining rays
and fill my life with shades of grey
still I long to find a way
So today,I pray for grace

I take a moment to myself
so I can hear myself
fear myself and be weary of myself
life's addictions and afflictions
cause abrasions from the friction
sometimes it's easier to live in fiction

I can run,but I can't hide
from the pains that reside down deep inside
there is no pill that can be swallowed
there is no guru that can be followed

there's no escaping from my own history
those that are hurting,those that hurting me
I was dead for a million years before I was born
and I'll be dead for a million more after I'm gone
So I live to give something that can live on
like the way you hear my song
after the music's gone
Like the warmth of the sand
when the sun goes down
and I'm sittin with myself
nobody else is around

It's been a long,long time since I've been away
been a long long time since I felt this way
been a long long time I found the words to say
how much I'm grateful for my life today

because under every cup you might find a nut
behind every corner you might get jacked up
at the end of every rainbow,you might find gold
your last bite of your sandwich hope you don't find mold
Cuz none of us can live the perfect life
the kind that we see on Nick-at-nite
and sometimes we all just lose sight
of the pain that will guide us from dark into the light

We fall down -yes- but we get up
and sometimes we just need a little bit of love
to help to make it through another day
into the night,into the light,into a saturday
so in the morning when I'm waiting for the sun to raise
and my head's a little foggy like I'm in a haze
I remind myself that everything is going to be okay
I take a breath,slow down and say

Why must I feel like this today?
I'm a soldier but afraid
sometimes to face the things that may
block the sun from shining rays
and fill my life with shades of grey
still I long to find a way
so today,I pray for grace
