Why did I take so long to get out of bed?

The sun was shining,

it still is, but it was a struggle today…

I haven’t done my usual Tai-Chi rotation,

I am feeling out of sorts,

nothing I can put my finger on,

just out of sorts….

I need to go to the tip,

I have a broken chair and a cat frame to get rid of,

and I keep meaning to sort through my books,


what should stay and what should go?


I meant to change the bedsheets yeaterday,

but I didn’t,

it’s hardly the end of the world,

and why did that just pop into my head anyway….


Where are you Lord in all of this?

I feel like Peter,

I’ve stepped out of the boat and looked around,

now I am sinking,

deep and deeper still…

is my faith too small,

have I got life all wrong?


I’d like to go back to bed….


Instead I will shower,

and get into the day,

or what’s left of it…

I need to eat,

then maybe a walk…

can these be my prayer today?

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...
