“All This Beauty” ~The Weepies

All this beauty
You might have to close your eyes
And slowly open wide
All this beauty, we traveled all night
We drank the ocean dry
And watched the sun rise

You can ask about it, but nobody knows the way
No breadcrumb trail to follow through your days
It takes an axe, sometimes a feather
In the sunshine and bad weather
It’s a matter of getting deeper in, any way you can

All this beauty
You might have to close your eyes
And slowly open wide
All this beauty, we traveled all night
We drank the ocean dry
And watched the sun rise

I can see your new awake
Let me assure you friend:
Every day is ice cream and chocolate cake
And what you make of it, let me say
You get what you take from it so be amazed
And never stop, never stop, never stop
You gotta be brave

‘Cause all this beauty
You might have to close your eyes
And slowly open wide
And watch the sun rise
And watch the sun rise
And watch the sun rise

It had been raining quite a bit last week and we were all growing quite weary of of the cloudy and raining skies. One day I was walking outdoors and it again began to pour. I watched as others around me began to duck their heads and run for cover. I found myself fighting that instinct and looked up at the raining clouds and smiled. If we take time to breathe instead of react, we can choose joy,

peace,

beauty,

happiness,

restoration.

I heard this song by the Weepies today (on my brother’s birthday who has taught me quite a lot about joy through difficult times) and I had to share it with you and him.

Rejoice today, friends…in the comfortable AND difficult times.
