love’s gonna carry me home


    The past few days have been marked by the words and actions of people around me who have offered love and encouragement in a number of tangible and meaningful ways. I’m still not past needing a melody to get through a post, but tonight I offer one out of gratitude: Pierce Pettis’ “Love’s Gonna Carry Me Home.”

    these days I’m noticing things
    the snow and the rain
    the wind in the trees
    when it gets moving
    they seem to say
    that I’m not alone
    and someday
    love’s gonna carry me home

    these days I’m learning to smile
    the hand of the child
    has pulled me into fields of laughter
    they make sure that I know
    that someday
    love’s gonna carry me home

    amazing grace big surprise
    hits you right between the eyes
    hits you hard like a small flat stone
    slays the giant and leads you home

    these days my life is a song
    it’s not very long and so I’ll sing it that much louder
    don’t take it hard when I go
    it’s ok – love’s gonna carry me home
    it’s ok – love’s gonna carry me home


    P. S. — Cooking helps, too. There’s another new recipe here.
