It's not like today was groundbreaking in any specific way.
It has actually been extraordinarily ordinary.
I haven't been able to run lately because I've had a really bad cough and your lungs kind of need to be on board if you're going to go for a jog. Today was the first time in over a week that I've hit the pavement in my running shoes and it felt like the world had suddenly been splashed in color. I was breathing in air and really feeling everything around me.
I thank God for the little mundane Monday details that make me feel so alive.
Today has been Phillip Phillips. Today has been the scent of vanilla. Today has been listening to Everyday Sunday on repeat, doing homework, wearing some worn in blue flannel, comforting my crazed beagle and breathing. And I love that.
Some lyric love:
- "Settle down, it'll all be clear. Don't pay no mind to the demons, they fill you with fear."
- "All I know is I'm so tired living life I barely feel. Give me hope, give me fire, give me something real."
- "The Lord our God is ever faithful! Never changing through the ages. From this darkness, You will lead us. And forever we will say, You're the Lord our God."
