The wheels on the bus go round and round and round…and then fall off.

After my post the other day about how well I was coping the wheels on the proverbial bus of my life, fell off.
I spent yesterday in a state of high agitation, exhaustion, frustration and subsequent crap-mum-dom after getting less than an hour’s sleep all of Wed night thanks to LP, who herself, was not in the best mood yesterday.
I swore a lot. Then felt guilty, and to be honest, kind of let down that all that swearing (and banging things) didn’t make me feel better.
I finally got out of the house to run some errands in the afternoon and happened to grab a Nicole Nordeman CD and pop it in and on came “Mercies New”…
And I would understand if I was out of chances
Your mercies are new every morning
So let me wake with the dawn
When the music is through or so it seems to be
Let me sing a new song, old things gone
Every day it’s true, You make all Your mercies new
The whole song is amazing, but these words had me driving along with tears streaming down as I was reminded by how great and huge and encompassing God’s love is.
It didn’t magically “fix” the afternoon, I was still tired and frustrated but I was also greatly aware that I was loved.
I wanted to include a youtube video of the song but can’t find one. If you don’t know, it’s worth getting hold of!
