“Jesus says ‘Mother I couldn’t stay another day longer’
Fly right by and leaves a kiss upon her face
While the angels are singin’ his praises in a blaze of glory,
Mary stays behind and starts cleaning up the place”
I haven’t been doing as much writing as i should, lately. I am on the 5th floor of the library watching the sunset and listening to Patty Griffin. I guess i enjoy the solitude of the one place no one ever goes at this University. This is such a good song…. I mean look at that verse. It says so much.
A lot happened on that day. But a mother still lost her son, and I wonder what that must of felt like for her. To see her son go through that… and to know there is nothing she could do. For you Blue Like Jazz kids out there, Donald Miller h talks about this song in his book.
On another thought, it makes me appreciate the love of my family. I don’t give them enough credit. I don’t.
I don’t think I can ever really appreciate the things in my life. Or.. well… I think about it sometimes, you know? To put it like George, “it’s love without end, amen”. That song always kind of got to me. Well enough for tonight– I’ve got to wrap up some homework, now.
