Today is a grey and rainy day. The kind that’s restful, a day of rest, a day to rest your mind and listen to the quiet and good calming music. Isn’t it interesting how you can listen to music and it takes you to where you first heard it or you can identify the music with a place. For instance, when I listen to George Winston – I sail back to
Another one is DC Talks CD Jesus Freak. When I hear the songs I’m in NM again with a wonderful feeling. Especially the song Between You and Me - I’m out on my mail route or on a drive in beautiful areas. It ministered to me in a way that it still does today. Isn’t it something how music can effect on your emotions - whether it is positive or negative?
I love music and quiet. LOL!
It’s also interesting how events can affect you too. Like a niece turning 6 this week and the last time you saw her she was 4 years old. We aren’t as close as we used to be and it’s sad to think when you could use a friend the most, you don’t have that friend you thought would be there. But the Lord is always there and does send others your way in the form of new friendship. You can even feel close to others you may never have met, but it’s like you’ve known them forever.
I was looking at a blog this morning that I recently started to visit. The blogger had pictures posted that made me sad. They were beautiful pictures of what she woke to on her birthday. Beautiful pictures of blue skies and daffodils; and in the western part of the states no less. It made me long to be there and belong.
I guess rainy days can have this affect on you; making you melancholy. Maybe it’s how we all should be feeling – longing to be home. That place you have in your heart you feel you belong and need to be. Just off the phone with my cousin as he said, “there’s more to life than mole life.” LOL Yes, I guess I’m feeling melancholy. Aren’t we just strangers here and should long to be in a better place, as heaven.
As the rain comes down and a change is in the works again; I might just make today a day of rest. I’ll listen to my music and think of better days ahead. Above all be thankful to the Lord and friends He sends along my way.
Proverbs 18:24 A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
