I Get To See This, Because I’m Free

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: FRAY

One of the greatest things I enjoy most these days is seeing a great sunrise.  When I was drinking, I had no thought of getting out of bed in the morning, I would sleep as long as I could and hide in my own home, behind the close curtains, not letting the outside world see the real me, the hopeless addict.

Since God set me free from that pain, I get to get up early, leave the house in the dark and walk into the light of the day, to watch the beauty of some great sunrises.  Today was no different, the sun turned the frayed edges of the clouds, firstly deep red and then to gold, an amazing scene I could never see from behind the curtains I made my prison walls.

THIS AIN’T HOME by SEABIRD
With every lie you told
You dug a deeper hole
You should know I’ve been down that road
I can show you where it goes
If you wanna know, it won’t lead you home

And why would we cry for your soul when you’re made of gold?
And why would we lie when you know that this ain’t home?

I know you’ve been afraid
That’s why you stay awake
All night and sleep through the day
Hoping to find a hand you can hold
Before you grow up and grow old

And why would we cry for your soul when you’re made of gold?
And why would we lie when you know that this ain’t home?
Everyone needs a hand to hold onto
Everyone needs a place to come home to
Hope you find a song to remind you
Everyone everyone…

And why would we cry for your soul when you’re made of gold?
And why would we lie when you know that this ain’t home?
Everyone needs a hand to hold onto
Everyone needs a place to come home to
Hope you find a song to remind you
Everyone everyone…

And why would we cry for your soul when you’re made of gold?
And why would we lie when you know that this ain’t home?
Everyone needs a hand to hold onto
Everyone needs a place to come home to
Hope you find a song to remind you
Everyone everyone…

Yeah this ain’t home

So please baby please
I’m begging you to show me
That you still believe that I won’t end up lonely
And please baby please
I’m begging you to help me…

    Such amazing beauty in the pictures that you take. I love them because they show the beauty and new mercies found in God and also simply because they are beautiful.
