Outside my Window

Tonight, outside the window in my living room, I’m blessed to watch the sun go down.  Every evening when weather permits, I am honoured to have this place of peace within me..

I watch the rain and storms, lightning as it flashes across the sky and the thunder pierces the quiet of the day.

It won’t be long until the wintry winds fill the air with a numbing chill and icicles find a home from a drip off a rooftop or gutter or any number of things.

I can hardly wait until the snowflakes fall and their many shapes amaze my sense of wonder and the need to feel that icy magnificence of what our Creator designed in my hand or on my fingers.

I’m a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a writer, a friend. I cook, clean, work, teach, study, live, love and laugh, but when it’s all said and done, I still feel empty. I want what I can’t have, I’ve wanted it for a long time but it was taken. I thought to myself, the desire for it should go away now that I’ve prayed…I’ve cried, begged, pleaded and even pretended it wasn’t there; I cry out to God and beg Him to please just take this from me, do something to strip me of the earthly desires, of the evil in my heart and nothing happens…it’s still there and some days it’s hard to swallow and suck down the tears inside, it hurts so much and in one brief moment, it could all be gone so quickly! He gives me words to bless others with and release my own thoughts.
