Sunday Song: The Sweetness of the Leaving

Sunday Song - ParayContemplative. Angry. Calm. Happy. Sad.

And that was all before I got out of bed one day last week.

There’s a day in between before and after. Changes are brewing. Changes are actively being made.

But in the quiet of the night, the doubts, the fear, the worry.

The wishing someone else would carry it, at least for a little while.

But even if they could, no one else really can.

So I remember in that moment that I’m not alone.

All I have to do is remember… and ask.

calling all angels
calling all angels
walk me through this one
don’t leave me alone
calling all angels
calling all angels
we’re tryin’ and we’re hopin’
but we’re not sure…

It gets better as I get used to it, as I seek ways to make it better, as I take control of the parts I can to do what I need and get to where I want to be. It’s work, and it’s scary, but it’s the way it needs to be as the change occurs.

I will continue on — through, but I eagerly look forward to the sweetness of the leaving


What is Sunday Song? Well, I’m a musical gal, from taking piano and drum lessons as a kid to my current stint in a community choir. Listening to music is for me what going to church is for some, so I celebrate with Sunday Song. Each week, I post a song that’s been my earworm for the week or that reflects what’s happening in my world along with a wee story why. Read my previous Sunday Song posts.

  1. Sending a prayer up for you – and I love how you worded the experience – I know the churning process you speak of – and how it can be for the good and it also
    Comes with knots and a lot of stuff that needs to be settled – you write that so well- without my needing to know what the change is – so kudos for that- but it also was so succinct – and maybe I appreciate it more because have been reading a lot tonight and well – when something is written clean and simple but dense and good – it is nice.
