Last, Makes Me Sad

                    It is five minute Friday over at Lisa-Jo Baker’s site.  This is where we write for 5 minutes with no editing, no over thinking, and no back 

               back tracking.  Are you ready?     Today the prompt is: LAST 

*******************************************************************************************************

 

 

 

 

I cry at Hallmark commercials. I am nostalgic and I love traditions. I love people. I love their stories. I take things to heart. I want things to last, to continue on…and I’m always disappointed when they don’t. Intellectually, I realize that nothing is going to last forever but, my heart still longs…

I don’t want to say good-bye knowing the relationship probably won’t last through time and distance.

I want the  celebration to be longer. I soak in the music and breathe in the silent night. Why can’t the merry of Christmas last?

I long for Autumn to last a bit longer…for the leaves to cling for a few more weeks.

I need a few more days of unscheduled summer. The unofficial last day of summer is next weekend.

I cry quietly this morning, petting my cat who is probably in her last days. I love my pets…even though I know one day they will cease to be here with me.

Last, hurts. Life is difficult.

Sigh.

This post is sad, I know. I’m just in one of those moods.

Tomorrow is a new day, and this gray day will not last…

***********************************************************************************************************************

Thank you Jesus, that even in the every day, YOU are here. You see me on the good days and You are there in the bad days. You will never leave me nor forsake me and Your mercies are new every morning

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
 They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.    Lamentations 3:22-23 NIV

AMEN

  1. You may not believe this, but I could cut and paste this post on my blog today. Except the “sad” part (I’m going on a men’s retreat with some guys from church this weekend) and the “cat” part. We’re dog people. Used to be cat people, but no more.

    All of this: “I cry at Hallmark commercials. I am nostalgic and I love traditions. I love people. I love their stories. I take things to heart. I want things to last, to continue on…and I’m always disappointed when they don’t. Intellectually, I realize that nothing is going to last forever but, my heart still longs…

    I think today might be the first day it has NOT rained in two or three weeks here.
    I can not wait for fall and your stories and pictures. God bless, my friend. Someday we’re going to enjoy that cup of coffee together on a swing in a sunny, warm green pasture of wildflowers.
