Lent Day 14- The bin is too much

Last week it was the laundry,

today it is the bin,

the kitchen bin to be precise,

it needs emptying,

not a huge task,

simple really,

but today it feels too much,

I could kick myself,

I am not emptying glass from my shattered apartment,

nor am I sheltering in a cellar or underground station,

bombs are not falling near me,

but the bin is too much…

outside the sun is shining,

maybe a walk will help,

like it did yesterday,

this I do know,

I can’t snap out of it,

nor can I simply pull myself together,

if I could, I would,

but today the bin is too much!

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
