#SongLyricSunday ♪ “Supernatural” by Flyleaf

SongLyricSunday

Yay, it’s Sunday! 🙂 Today, we’re going to be tackling the Christmas decorating. To many, that might seem like a late start, but as much as I love the holidays, I don’t like overlapping them and try to keep them in their respective seasons. Thus, this being the first weekend of December, the month belonging to the new winter season, I will finally get to the task many accomplished over the past two weeks, if not sooner.

In my defense, it will likely take me much longer to get them down and packed away again, because I’m lazy! LOL

This week’s #SongLyricSunday theme is: Courage

Please see Helen’s original post on This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time if you’d like to join in the fun, or read the cute story about her two year old nephew!

Courage covers such a vast spectrum of choices when it comes to music. I’ve had a jukebox going full swing in my head ever since I read what the theme was about, and there are so many great, inspiring songs going on up there. Blaze of Glory by Jon Bon Jovi, A Broken Wing by Martina McBride, Man in the Mirror by Michael Jackson…the playlist goes on and on.

Today, I’ve chosen a song about a different kind of courage that we don’t always recognize or even want to discuss, because it makes us uncomfortable. The courage of those who suffer daily with chronic pain or a terminal illness and the courage of their family members who are equally afflicted, if they care enough to be. The courage to hold fast to our faith, no matter what that might be, in the face of so much suffering. It’s a spiritual kind of courage and strength that is most enviable and admirable.

In this Season of Giving, filled with the world’s most iconic and beautiful music, what better than a song to remind us that the most important things we have to give are non-material. Enjoy!

Her headaches
Constant
Increasing in pain with each passing day
She can’t even manage to stand on her own
It’s gotten so bad

Now you think of saying
There’s no use in praying
And still she bows her head so she can say,
“Thank you for just one more day.”

Supernatural patience
Graces her face
And her voice never raises
It’s all because of a love
Never let go of
Never let go of

He has every reason to throw up his fists
To the face of his God who let his mother die
Through all the prayers and tears
She still passed in pain anyway

Now you think of saying
There’s no use in praying
And still he bows his head so he can say,
“Thank you for ending her pain.”

Supernatural patience
Graces his face
And his voice never raises
It’s all because of a love
Never let go of
Never let go of

He is teaching me
What love really means

Supernatural patience
Graces his face
And his voice never raises
It’s all because of a love
Never let go of

Yes it’s supernatural patience
Graces his face
And his voice never raises
All because of a love
Never let go of
Never let go of

He is teaching me
What love really means
