Reflections Of A Monday Morning

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

Despite the thin layer of frost that covered the ground this morning, the sun was shining brightly, the view of sun on the frosty lake were once again worth taking a few minutes out of my day to see.

The setting sun beyond the clouds on the journey home was worth seeing too.

DRIVE by ED KOWALCZK
Headed out into my desert
all alone and thirsty for something more
than the whiskey that had become my water
Would you mind if I put this on your shoulder?

I need something more

Here I am,
standing inside your love like a child.
Falling asleep at the wheel of my life
and letting you drive.
I’m letting you drive.

Oooh…

Headed out into my dark night,
like a soldier surrounded in the losing fight.
Probability of a victory’s over.
Would you mind if I put this on your shoulder?

I need something more

Here I am,
standing inside your love like a child.
Falling asleep at the wheel of my life
and letting you drive.
I’m letting you drive.

Oooh….

You’re the only one,
You’re the only one who can save me.

I need something more

Here I am,
standing inside your love like a child.
Falling asleep at the wheel of my life
and letting you drive.
I’m letting you drive.

Here I am,
right where I belong.
On the shoulder, hanging off the keys,
close my eyes and letting you drive
I’m letting you drive.

This song played on my iPod earlier today, immediately I thought it would sit perfectly with this post.

GLORIOUS by GREY HOLIDAY
I fight the noise to hear the silence
But for a moment feel the breeze
I’ve been lost inside the madness
Of a world that’s run so far away
From where we’re meant to be
Where are You now?

We live among the glorious
And we’ve got to try to see
Give me eyes to see the glorious
The beauty that has always been
Right in front of me

Heaven knows You have done enough
You bent the stars to fit my view
You’re the blanket of unending love
That’s always here to cover us
Like the morning dew
I see You now

I have come to behold You
And I will never be the same
I am reaching out to touch You
So fall on me like rain

We live among the glorious
And we’ve got to try to see
Give me eyes to see the glorious
The beauty that has always been
Right in front of me

We live among the glorious
And we’ve got to try to see
Give me eyes to see the glorious
The beauty that has always been
Right in front of me

Resisting Excuses

I had every excuse in the world available to me this morning and I chose none.  Did I ache this morning, tired muscles and few bruises, it reminds me of my old squad days when after three hours of hard training, then a 125mile trip home on a train sat on my bag on the floor next to the doors of a train.

A week ago I would have rolled over and gone back to sleep, awaiting a second alarm, this morning I got up, got changed and got out.

It was certainly an odd walk with a bit of a limp, but just as good as any walk I’ve done in a while, despite it being another mist filled, overcast morning, the sun did begin to break through eventually.

I actually started this post about 2½ hours ago, but I fell asleep, regardless I feel alive again.

ALIVE by POCKET FULL OF ROCKS
There was a time I was dead inside. 
You’d call my name and I’d try to hide. 
My heart was dark and so full of shame, 
Full of shame. 
But like the dawning of a brand new day 
Your love has chased my shame away. 
How amazing, now to hear You singing over me! 
Over me! 

Loudly, I sing 
Loudly, I live 
Giving You all I have to give, 
Until the world knows the Love that’s made me so alive 
I’m alive, I’m alive! 

Well, every day I find Your mercy new. 
And every moment that I spend with You 
I am overwhelmed by Grace I can’t keep to myself! 
To myself! 

Loudly, I sing 
Loudly, I live 
Giving You all I have to give, 
Until the world knows the Love that’s made me so alive 
I’m alive, I’m alive! 

Loudly, I sing 
Loudly, I live 
Giving You all I have to give, 
Until the world knows the Love that’s made me so alive 
I’m alive, I’m alive! 

Out of my sorrow, out of my night, 
You called me into Glorious Light. 
Where all of the lost, lonely and broken 
Find Your Light. 
Shine Your Light. 

Loudly, I sing 
Loudly, I live 
Giving You all I have to give, 
Until the world knows the Love that’s made me so alive 
I’m alive 

Loudly, I sing 
Loudly, I live 
Giving You all I have to give, 
Until the world knows the Love that’s made me so alive 
I’m alive, I’m alive! Yeah, 
I’m alive, I’m alive, yeah!

My walk this morning was a great walk, of late I have been struggling for pace, since Christmas I have struggled to match the 4.7mph walking pace I was averaging before, usually dropping down to 4.4/4.5mph, okay not much to some of you who may struggle to even contemplate that speed, but this morning I averaged a fantastic 4.8mph, I was on fire, it was hard work, but I feel like I am getting back to where I was last year.  Plus it was a great workout and will help me get back down to the weight I was before Christmas.

So after 8 miles of walking at 4.8mph, I sat at the lake and watched the sunrise, the sun didn’t bring out any of the wonderful colours it has previously, but the clouds and the aircraft trails combined with the mirror like glass of the lake to make some great images, so enjoy.
