New Day Dawning

Today is a new day my friend. God’s mercies are new upon you today. Walk in love. Rejoice – the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!

NEW DAY

Lamentations 3_23Darkness knocked at my door last night
tried to come in and eat me alive
The Red moon rises in the sky
Brought Warrior Angels nigh

 

It’s a new day dawning and I’m wearing the Sunshine
It’s a new day dawning and I’m wearing the Sunshine
It’s a new day dawning and I’m wearing the Sunshine
Gonna rise and fly

 

Old days and old ways came to life
Sorrow and shame danced in the night
The Red Moon rises in the sky
Joy came with the morning light

 

It’s a new day dawning and I’m wearing the Sunshine
It’s a new day dawning and I’m wearing the Sunshine
It’s a new day dawning and I’m wearing the Sunshine
Gonna rise and fly

NEW DAY (Instrumental) by Diana Rasmussen

Second Fiddle

DAILY POST: FRAME OF MIND

If you could paint your current mood onto canvas, what would that mood look like? What would it depict?

Second Fiddle

Song Description
Living as a child with divorced parents is not always easy – especially when they both come to watch you play at a sporting event and sit on opposite sides.  I have been the parent, and I have been the kid in this situation.

SECOND FIDDLE

Like a rope pulled back and forth in a tug of war
Like a soccer ball bounced from head to toe
Like the fly away ball in a baseball game
His perfect family is up in flames

He hangs on believing things will change
He is only one play away
He’s caught in the middle
Playing second fiddle

Like a chess pawn sacrificed for the King and Queen
Like a quarterback sacked on the play
Like a basketball in a zone defense
He’s double teamed or else he’s benched

He hangs on believing things will change
He is only one play away
He’s caught in the middle
Playing second fiddle

Back and forth, back and forth
zero to love, zero to love

He’s caught in the middle
Playing second fiddle
Oh he’s caught in the middle
Playing second fiddle

He hangs on believing things will change
He is only one play away
He’s caught in the middle
Playing second fiddle
