bad days

teacuppamela.pngIt seems that there is no good news these days… the decaying world demonstrates its bent to destruction and we see evidence of this throughout society. O, it’s not just the horrendous murders, the senseless killings, the hostile reactions to the decision to legally protect innocent unborn babies… and it’s not specifically the actions of any one person or group. It’s the pervasive rebellion to a just and holy God who is our Creator and Sovereign LORD.

As I read in the news and some blogs, I find I’m saddened at the insensitivity to spiritual things — or, rather, I should say: Christian things. I suppose it is the preoccupation to spiritual things that has led to all this demise… for the spirit world certainly is real and certainly grips the hearts of men and women all over the world. No… it’s not so much that I am questioning the reality of the dark world [“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6.12] — I’m not specifically so burdened with all that as I am with the apathy and complacency of believers —people who *know* the Truth and yet live as though they never heard – women who know the Word yet seek to live and behave otherwise. Where is the passion for Jesus? Where is joy in and for Him — just for who He is and what He’s done.
I’ve decided to not comment on the stuff in the news… nationally or locally… the murders in Virginia and the atrocities in our local and state government as we continue to see the demise of the family and business. Nor would it serve any valuable purpose to comment on all the rantings that go on in the so-called: “blogosphere.” More than ever I’m seeing that people can refuse to see things they don’t want to see or manufacture ones they want to see. It’s all sort of cyclical, though, and so I guess I sit back and say: this, too, shall pass.

My hint for the day: go be a blessing to someone. Sensational stories probably are just that: sin-sational.

I smile as I think of a bad day… really. I know… nuts. I smile as I think of memories riding along with Kathryn in her car; a zip in to Starbuck$… and the music playing… and there’s a song that always makes me smile and sing. Loudly. With her. Really loud.

Bad Day

Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to gray
They tell me your passion’s gone away
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You’re faking a smile with the coffee you go
You tell me your life’s been way off line
You’re falling to pieces every time
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

Because you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Will you need a blue sky holiday?
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

You had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day

(Oooh.. a holiday..)

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I’m not wrong

(yeah…)

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

Cause you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You’ve seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

And then I miss Kathryn more. (and by the way… I’m really not sad as this whole post sounds—it’s just a reflection of the day… that’s all)
Gotta go… can you hear me? I’m singing at the top of my lungs… I found “Bad day” on someone’s playlist ;o) on my computer here. Yippee………………………………. a blue sky holiday!
